Re: Superflex Bushes

Yes,partly but the explanations of colour/hardness from different eBay sellers varied greatly. On one occasion, having ordered a set of Superflex bushes from an eBay listing featuring a pic of proper Superflex bushes what arrived was a pair of no name bushes in a different colour to that ordered.

I always found that the ZS 19/20mm ARB gave enough control for the road as it seemed to help the turn in. On the track it may be di...
