So I tried the URO CAC9295 slipflex bushings here, and they lasted about 1 year.
I am running poly bushings, but because of the ride quality, I’d like to try rubber.
The Genuine CAC9295 are the rubber slipflex bushings which last longer, but how long? This whole slipflex engineering is it’s own weakness. And they are $50 each!
Looking through my SNG catalogue, they offer CBC5523 as an upgraded version for XJS. These seem to be the ones used on XJ40’s and X300s in the 90s. I see them sold online for XJ6’s in the 80s. Since we have the same suspension, they should work? They are also $50 each, but since they are not slipflex, they should last much much longer.
Anybody know about this or have tried them?
