  • S2 Subframe bushes.

    Hello,

    I will but to my S2 new subframe. No my question is what bushes to but.
    You S2 fans defenetly know what is better options.

    My car is more Daily driver that track car. But firmer handling is always good. But i defenetly dont want to firm and pumpi car.
    Options is to put OEM, PowerFlex and Aluminium ones.

    As i understand then metal ones will rust in salty winter?

        If you daily drive your car, you should use flexible poly bushes (not hard plastic/POM). Rubber is to soft, but aluminium is very stiff.

          I prefer the Powerflex poly bushes to alloy having tried both, handling wise there was no noticeable difference but the ride was slightly smoother..

            Actually I have Superflex on my Coupe
            Good compromise between stock rubber and Powerflex poly

                Super flex is a little more flexible

                  Power flex are very easy to fit as well,I found OEM to be very difficult without special tools.

                    If you want to fit OEM bushes, you have to put a screw in the hole an just press on the screws head. Then the bushes will get longer and also thinner.
