How easy/hard did you find them to fit?

No not yet, its not a job i'm 100% confident in tackling really.

I dont have a press or a G-Clamp either so i dont think i could get them fitted myself anyway.....it'll have to be a garage job i think.

What do you guys think of the quality of my bushes looking at these 2 pics...

Both have these large bubbles in the outer and the inner is similar, quite rough...I fear these may be weak spots and cause the bushes to tear?

I thought the quality would be better than that TBH.

I was only asking people opinions, as ive never had any poly bushes before and wondered if they are all like that?....But like craigyboy said, it is hard wearing....so shouldnt be a problem.

Well they are fitted, and although ive only been driving round town etc, i can feel the difference if its chucked into bends, it does feel a touch sharper...i'll see what its like when i'm on a more 'spirited' drive ;)

Definitely money well spent :)
