Title: HF Turbo Suspension Bushes
Post by: Chris5090 on 04 November, 2008, 08:02:25 PM
Hi there,

I'm new on here but i need a bit of advice! I'm currently restoring my HF Turbo ??? ;D and have managed to find most of the parts i need, however i'm stuck for Front and Rear Suspension Bushes.

Anyone got any idea where i can get some? Polyurethane or rubber, it doesn't really, i just cant seem to find any at the minute.

When i started on this i knew i'd struggle for some things, maybe bodywork but not suspension :'( Turns out bodywork wasn't too difficult for me, but if anyone wants new front wings or rear suspension crossmember forget Fiat, i bought the last ones from Italy, I also got a new Passenger Rear Wing but i'm realy stuck on this suspension

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Regards - Chris

Hi Chris


I presume you've tried the usual specialists such as Walkers, Tanc Barrett, AutoIntegrale , John Whalley etc ?

I re-bushed the rear anti-roll bar on my Evo quite recently and had no problem getting them (standard bushes), they are
the same on the 2WD Delta's.

I personally prefer standard rubber bushes , having fitted uprated bushes in the past to other cars,they transmitted noticeably
more road noise , although I think some manufacturer's now claim to have cured this.

Let us know how you get on and good luck with the rebuild

which bushes do you need, i may have some top strut mounts that go on top of the shox and bolt up though bodywork.

The bushes i need - all the rear ones, (to be honest i haven't had a good look at them but as i'm going to so much trouble with the rest i may as well change them whilst it's in bits). I also need the Front wishbone rear bushes and all the anti roll bar bushes (i hadn't realised the Evo ones where the same).

I haven't tried any of the specialists yet, they all seem to just advertise 4wd & Integrale so i didn't think they'd be interested, but i hope they can help, i'll give them a try!

By the way i have managed to get hold of 2 x Passenger side rear wings and 2 x Rear Suspension Cross Members, i need one of each but if anyone is stuck drop me a line.

Thanks - Chris
