I know there has been several topics on these but thought i would start a fresh one.
What have people used? I know there is powerflex, superflex and priri racing. People have said previously that superflex is stiffer and cheaper than powerflex but i notce that powerflex now do a black series which is supposed to be 25% stiffer than their normal poly bushes.

Im not gonna poly bush the whole car, probably just the rear end. What are peoples thoughts on polybushes?

A must have on the age of our bushes and as said chose the right ones for the use of the car and they should be little more vibration than standard

Do Nissan do any bushes prob not cheap. 
You doing the subframe ?

Yeah Johnny the 4 main subframe ones on mine are shot and thought i might as well upgrade them. My thinking was, if i stiffen up the rear end it should help with understeer? Im not gonna go crazy on it though as im not building a track car.

If you are looking for a cheaper option just remove rear subframe and fill the stock bushes with sikaflex,

I bought the 83quid kit off ebay which is half the price of the powerflex. I need the other bushes as driving over humps or jacking up it creaks badly.

For road use I would get lowest shore poly available or spend time to source some original bushes. a mix can work - original on subframe will keep vibration & noise minimal & lateral & trailing link could be suitable poly.

Does anyone know of anywhere that sell a complete rear bush kit that only includes all rear control arms.
I don't want to change my arb bush or subframe bushes

How old are your subframe ones and arb ones as I say it's not a case of stiffening but if you renew some at rear and subframe ones are shot it's putting pressure on other areas or wasting money in my opinion.most subframe ones I see are shot badly

Not to sure on age but inspected them yesterday and they looked good.
Don't they make locking collars for the subframe like they Do on the silvias
