ok, i posted this awhileago, but i'm asking again.
*what* is the best brand of polyeurathane mounts/bushing for suspension purposes?
are the top strut mounts even available in polyeurathane? or is it just the control arm bushings?
i got one mention of "prothane" but that's it. are there any others that are better/worse or ones to stay away from?
you guys are my information gods, hook me up dammit! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Suspension setup - help! (VReihenmotor6)

thx for the site, that's exactly what i was looking for.
regarding the front strut tower mount - i assume you can only go the OEM route for that? i havent seen any poly ones, i guess i'll have to deal w/ rubber for that.
thx again for your time.

I had Delrin bushings on my 4000 Quattro...and talk about HARSH...even with a more or less stock setup, bumps in the road damn near broke my wrists.
I liked it! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
