Powerflex bushes & engine mounts

The central sleeves look ecentric and the front camber one has a c-spanner. Does this mean it'll be adjustable in-situ? What about the caster bush, adjustable in-situ or not?
I would be keen on the adjustable ones but only if adjustment is easy, otherwise I can see it costing a hell of a lot at an alignment centre removing and adjusting off car each time??

Standard spec is about -1.3 deg of neg camber at the rear but only about -0.6 neg camber front, so these bushes should allow me to balance that up a bit. I would have thought -1.5 front would be perfect. Any more and probably run the risk of increased tyre wear on motorway work and although extra neg camber will reduce contact patch on accel and braking, fitted in combination with the caster bush it should balance out fine (having anti lift/dive in the caster bush typically enhances traction and braking).

How much would be the shipping to Zagreb, Croatia for the: PFF60-820, PFF60-821, PFF60-822?

Got an offer from my local Powerflex dealer so waiting for the group buy now and to compare prices with shipping.

:thumbsup:
 
Can't wait for the engine mount bushes to arrive hoping its a nice compromise between standard and vibratechnics mounts :smile:

Adjustment for all bushes is in-situ so no need to remove arms. As you point out 1.5 degree is ideal camber for the Clio and the camber bushes provide this. The anti lift bushes will provide much better traction as you say. We'll be fitting these to our car very soon.

We're just awaiting our initial stock from Powerflex which is being dispatched to us today, they were only released the other day and looks like Powerflex have had a massive response from all their dealers hence the slight delay.

As soon as we have them they will go straight out the door to you. Hoping they will arrive in the morning. In which case you and the others that have already ordered should get them the following day.

I will also take a set to Curborough for the guys to have a look at on Friday if we have them.

Become a Paid Member, If you like your Clio it'll be the best £5 you'll ever spend on it.
The 'How To' section is worth 10 times that!

And you'll save at least double that on any of the offers [MENTION=1272]Fernandez[/MENTION] has put up!
 
Anyone know how these are fitted?

im interested in the full kit depending on how hard it is to fit

does the rear beam need to come out?

how hard is it to get the bottom arm off and is there a risk of damaging the ball joint in doing so?

same for the engine mounts - how hard are these to fit and what sort of vibrations/noise increase is likely?


is the adjustable kit required for standard suspension?
 
Would the camber adjustable front bush be able to reduce the negative camber I acquired when I lowered my car? Or is it just able to add a few degrees of negative camber?
 
Are there any plans to include a gearbox mount or is this not possible? I'm buying the 3 engine mounts but might as well replace the gearbox one while I'm on. If it's not going to be available as an insert then are you able to supply an uprated replacement such as the vibratechnics ones?

At present there are no plans for a gearbox mounts, i can certainly provide vibratechnics mounts if required, leave it with me and ill post a price.
