Hello Richard,
The bushes were from Polybush and was a kit for the car

Hello Paul,

Have you mentioned this to Polybush + the photo - I think they would be interested.

Certainly worth a telephone call / email ??

Be aware that 'Poly bushes' come in various grades of hardness and quality .. the original metalastic bushes as used on rear suspension arms have a very long life ( minimally 150k miles) and require no lubrication .. there are specific places that are better served by poly bushes on our cars .. one of those places is the front suspension upper and lower pivots .. personally Id stick with metalastics on the rear..provided you can get the original Jaguar/Daimler bushes.
