    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?

    No issues with alloy subframe bushes front and rear on my type 85, still running OEM wishbone bushes though but would like to try poly in there as well.

    I run Superflex on my coupe, they are quieter than Powerflex , stiff enough and really easy to fit.

    I've had solid subframe bushes for around 5 years now... no vibrations from them... I did get more vibration with harsher gearbox / engine mounts

    I am running Supaflex poly subframe bushes. Much more control than OEM but no harshness whatsoever. Recommended for OEM+!

    Some says that they dont feel vibartions even with solid metal ones. So buy Powerflex,AK etc. rubber ones and your good.

    I bpought AK motorsport red bushes. I dont want solids vibrations. I think red ones are more more durable and stiffer than oem.

    Oem subframe bushes are also a nightmare to fit, I mashed 2 up trying to press them in and then went and bought powerflex.

    Go with solid alloy ones, my car had them fitted by Dyalynx and since then I've fitted power flex wishbone bushings and really enjoy the car, plus nothing but praise by passengers

    I wouldnt spend that money on oem one personally...the alloy or powerflex or supaflex ones will largely be fit and forget and that much for a full set

    I'm after oem sub frame bushes, any one know which make would be best? Genuine audi ones are available, but are they worth the $120each or so?

    I think i will go with Powerflex ones. I hate vibrations and i think solid ones makes some vibrations?

    always run with solid ones and I dont find them buzzy at all. Agree with comments above, sharpen up the handling. Last summer moved to powerflex wishbone bushes from OEM and seem to again make things more connected and sharper steering. Also they don't degrade over time like the oem ones.
