Hi all, 

My RH 3a has the Sierra track arms on the front (at least I think that’s what they’re called!). Does anyone know if anyone does polyurethane bushes for them? I’ve had a quick google and got thoroughly confused!

Assuming you mean the outer ones (where the ARB fits, originally) then if you can still get them, P100 bushes from Ford are a higher grade (ie. bit of an upgrade) without going all-out on solid poly bushes. More cost-effective upgrade, we did this on our old Exmo.

So...on closer inspection the ball joints in the track control arms are worn out...I have a few questions.

1) I assume these can’t be replaced and that it has to be a whole arm?

2) On Burtons the pattern arms say “not suitable for poly bushes” and idea why as I have some poly bushes coming.

Thanks in advance, Chris

I’ve solved the mystery - the pattern ones have the big bush moulded in rather than pressed in. They also seem to have been machined and then sleeved to a different size so the poly ones don’t fit even if you remove the moulded bush (don’t ask me how I’ve found this out...but hasten to say I have a knackered brand new arm 🙄😢😂)
