Hi Guys

over the weekend i heard of some rose bushes to suit the gq. between the radius arm and the chassis.

i tried looking everywhere on the net but couldnt find any info about them.

is anyone using these atm, how do they work. or does anyone know where i can get any info on them.

cheers.

Not legal for road use. I've not seen it before but from what you describe they cut out where the rubber bushes go and weld in something to mount a spherical bearing.
Rose bushes wear FAST and are really only suited to comp vehicles and the odd things like a gear shifter linkage.
I wouldn't bother anyway, you're better off with superflex arms if that's what you want.

thanks for the comment guys

after ur comments i will prob go for the rubber bushes.

has ne1 used the rubber bushes from Snake Racing, how do they perform against the nissan standard bushes??? they approx half the price and they are the only other rubber bushes i have found

i asked the employee at snake racing and he claims they are pretty much the same if not better then the nissan bushes...

cheers
