TheSaabNinja Definitely go with the Powerflex Bushings. My NG900 used to shake like a bat out of hell prior to installing them. Really makes a difference.

g96nt It looks like VIVA has them, up in NH.
But, since they're close, I'll probably take the trip to get them.

Cark 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.

mhess427 I used EBAY for all of mine. They shipped from Europe.

NickTurbo900 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)

Try it!

Much vibration with the powerflexs? The cars I deal with are all stock power levels.

To those that have done some of these: What bushings do you think give the best improvement for the money?
The stock subframe bushings "Suck ASS" & are a Pain to Press in & Out, I Rip them out on a Regular basis & If your car has any Balls & You drive like a Sport, Well then the subrame kit from powerflex is the best thing I've found to hold any 95 with Power together.

Dude? Powerflex USA is Strait down 81, You could go pick them up if you wanted to. But they usually come almost next day with standard shipping.
