Lower Front Arms

Just replaced lower front suspension arms fitted with poly bushes, however finding the ride a little to harsh for my likening so going to do it all again with new arms fitted the Meyle solid bushes and see how we get on with those, at least bolts will come out easy this time Rolling with laughter to be fair though only had to cut one bolt to remove original arm so not to bad.

Cheers
Col

Good luck Col Thumbs Up You are definitely making the right choice.

I've heard bad things about polybushed lower front arms. In fact I recently saw a post somewhere concerning either a Disco 4 or a RRS where the front lower arm had actually snapped because of the polybush's inability to flex. Shocked For this reason alone, I'd always stick with rubber. Kev

If you insist on Polys, fit Superpro Thumbs Up

More expensive than Polybush etc, but a much better design of bushing Thumbs Up

Otherwise, Meyle HD arms Thumbs Up

Thanks Mikey, Thumbs Up not sure what make of bush the poly one's are they were fitted to complete arms from A/F, have now ordered a set with the Meyle bushes fitted from them. As have a spare set of arms may well fit Superpro bushes to them as spares or sell them on, just one genuine L/R Hydra bush down here alone is £125.00 as based on mileage I do these days probably never need them.

Cheers
Col

Just swapped the front lower arms again with one's fitted with Meyle HD bushes and have to say found them a much smoother ride than the poly bush ones I previously fitted which were a little to harsh for me, so personally have to say I prefer the rubber bushes. Now just got to find someone down here who knows how to do the alignment correctly, not to many seem to have the Hunter equipment either.

Col did you only replace the lower front arms? Or did you do the whole lot.

Do Meyle do rear arms also ? Mine is a 2012 RRS

I have the Meyle Heavy Duty front lower arms from AF on mine.

I believe the HD variants are only available for the front lowers.

Standard duty are available for the other arms (I think).

Be careful with the standard Meyle components. I remember looking around on the web previously and whilst their HD kit is well thought of, many people have had issues with their SD stuff for other marques. Kev

Yeah, only replaced the front arms with the Meyle H/D bushes fitted as they were the only one's needed, certainly seem good quality and fair price, personal preference but wouldn't recommend the polybush ones as bit to harsh for me. Like Kevin said I don't think A/F list the other arms/bushes as H/D.
