It looks like VIVA has them, up in NH.
But, since they're close, I'll probably take the trip to get them.

I use partsforsaabs.com , they are in the UK, but even with shipping they usually wind up cheaper than power flex US. Weird...
Not sure what I'm going to do for my subframe bushes comes the spring... I think I would like to go power flex.

I replace the rearmost subframe bushings on 9-5's regularly (maybe 3 sets a month) and I can tell that you don't like them
I love them! and you will love me after I share this with you...
I lower the subframe a bit by half removing the front subframe bolts and completely removing the rear. I use an air hammer with a sharp chisel to remove and an appropriately sized socket and large air hammer punch to install. Using this method I remove and replace both in about 20 minutes total. I keep the stock of bushings in the freezer (also do the rear outboard control arm bushings this way too)
Much vibration with the powerflexs? The cars I deal with are all stock power levels.

Ugh... so pricey...
The subframe bushings? 180$? They are about 25$ each for stock and last a 100k miles.
To those that have done some of these: What bushings do you think give the best improvement for the money?

places to buy powerflex for 9-5's?
I'm going to have to replace my LCA bushings... powerflex seems like the way to go.
anyone know where to get them here in the US? I keep coming up with UK vendors.
