    Polybushes

    hi
    I have a lowered Caddy 2K 1.9tdi C20 2005 and would like to upgrade the front wishbone rear bushes to polyurethane rather than replace with stock VW parts
    I am not sure if this is the same as a MK5 golf running gear setup
    I need a size and if possible recommendation of where and who would be able to supply these in the UK...
    All help appreciated

    They are the same as MK5 1K Golf and 1T Touran.

    I've used Powerflex a lot and have had no issues myself.

    If you want to really tighten up the front, go nuts: get the Anti-lift kit, which gives better traction (less wheel hop) and also more caster, makes the steering feel heavier and more solid.

    In addition to that, I got the camber adjustable front lower arm bushes and the ECS subframe lock kits (which needs trimming to fit with the anti-lift kit). With standard bushes, the camber isn't adjustable as such - you have to slide the subframe left or right to make it even. With the adjustable bushes, you can adjust each side individually which probably helps a lot on a lowered Caddy.

    My Touran is raised slightly, and the camber adjustment was brilliant.
