Luego squeaky suspension sorted

I have at long last driven my Velocity without it squeaking at low speed as the wishbone suspension moves. It has been a revelation. Now I know the cure I'll happily tell you all:

Superflex bushes and stainless steel crush tubes.

I tried all the recommended cures, such as reducing the originally supplied bushes, without any joy. So in a moment of madness I splashed out on some proper bushes from Superflex and the car has been transformed. I cannot recommend them strongly enough.

OK... so Exactly which bushes / tubes / Part Numbers did you order?

Glad you have it fixed... the specific info might help others!

Cheers
Maybe see you at Stonleigh... Althoug we may have difficulty finding you now, as we cant listen for the squeaky suspension

Will have a close look next week

OK, the parts are:

Superflex Ltd, 01749 678152

SF2043P-90 Top hat bush, kit car / hot rod 3.25
SF2043-42T 19x12x42mm stainless steel tube 5.50

I realise that this isn't cheap but my car has been transformed by fitting them.

I presume that this is the web page for them.

Linky dinky

Took me a mo to find them as the part numbers were incomplete.





Beware of the Goldfish in the tulip mines. The ONLY defence against them is smoking peanut butter sandwiches.

They were the part numbers on the invoice so they should do the job. The tubes were specially machined as they were a different lenght to the standard part so the code for that might not match.
