POWERFLEX suspension bushes are designed, in general, to be fitted by a home mechanic without the necessity for special tools. 

The following video shows a typical way of removing and installing bushes with tools found in most home garages. 

Bush Installation from Powerflex on Vimeo.


1. Remove the original rubber bush from the arm, and clean any dirt and corrosion from the bore. Using a rounded file, remove any sharp edges from around the bore of the arm, creating a slight chamfer. Failure to do so will cause damage to the bush when pressing in.

2. Apply some washing-up liquid to the outside of the bush and bore of the arm to ease fitting. Press the polyurethane bush into the arm at an angle so one part of the lip is already in the bore of the arm, when the bush is then pushed in the rest of the lip will follow. Make sure the lip has fully popped out of the other side of the arm.

3. Apply some of the supplied grease to the bore of the bush and insert the sleeve. 

4. Re-fit the arm to the vehicle and tighten all hardware to all manufacturer’s recommended torque settings.

Here is a video demonstrating the fitment of a bush of this style. 


The grease supplied with our bushes in the white sachet is our own formulated PTFE/Silicone bush assembly grease. 

The key benefits of using this type of grease are,

  • Long-lasting lubrication.
  • Reduced wear and friction to all PU and metal components.
  • Good corrosion protection on plated metal parts.
  • A wide operating temperature range and good low-temperature properties for differing environments around the world.
  • Consistent thickness at varying temperatures. It will not thin out or thicken too much in extreme temperatures.
  • The spec’d NLGI grade provides excellent washout properties for wetter environments.

It is used to optimise bush performance and durability.


To measure your Anti-Roll bar, there are two recommended methods.

If you have access to a Vernier Caliper then this is the most accurate way, however, using an open-ended Spanner can be just as effective.

By placing the open end of the spanner over the ARB and to the side of the rubber bush, you can gauge the size by simply moving up and down on the size until you find one that fits closely.

Whatever the size of the spanner is a good indication of the size of the ARB bush that you’d require. Simple!
