Needing some help, for those who have fitted one of these, what bushes did you use? I've been in touch with whiteline and they no longer supply the bushes, neither do demon tweeks.
What other compatible bushes are out there which will fit into the holding bracket? I got a set from my local motor factors but they are too big to fit, the gap is 20mm, that bit us fine.
Thanks

Cheers Matt, I will send them an email to find out. I'm hoping something obscure like a Suzuki jimny ir similar will fit, the closest do far is a set from a vectra, matching overall size, but the hole in the middle of the bush only goes up to 19mm.

Be interested to see how much superpro quote for these Smurf? I imagine it will be a decent amount, definitely not cheap

I'll keep th thread updated, in case anyone is interested, part number is spf0305-20k the 20k part being the size of the bush needed. There are a few superpro suppliers in the UK, one of them is about 20 miles away from me, quite lucky, he has now sent them an email in aus, so once I get a price back it should take 3-4 to ship them out/arrive.

Yes just done my Mazda 3 SP23 with superpro bushes and their service is pretty good. Rang 'em up and they were more than happy to provide help/advice.

Their website superpro.com.au has a good search engine, suspension diagrams and parts listing. Just search for "Mazda 323 BA Astina". You can also download PDFs. Note however it may be for Aus-spec models.

Their bushes I received came with a squeeze-packet of lube with instructions all in a sealed Zip-loc bag.

And of course, they're Australian :-)

Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Patrick
