    I am running garagistic poly all around other than that - no complaints.
    Thats why I went with Condor RTABs. I've been using them on my ix for about 3 years now and not a single squeak.

    OP personally I'm going to be running Condor everything on my 325i street car except for engine, trans, and diff.

    I picked up revshift 95A for my rear subframe kit, diff bushing, trans, and motor mounts. I’m throwing them on in a couple of weeks. I went 95A because solid derlin would be too noisey from what i read for street use. I figure 95A would be a good medium between performace and road vehicle noise.

    Condor. Mainly because of the material type. I thought it would be better than poly. Personal opinion though.

    Main reasons for me
    -Self Lubrication
    -Condor/Silence are GREAT to deal with
    -Condor does great in SpecE30.


    I've also pulled bushings out of a trailing arm to swap into new arms and they did fine up removal and re-installation.

    I wouldn't run them as engine/Trans mounts.

    AKG is the best, hands down. Powerflex is good, too.

    Subframe bushings: Who'd you use?

    Hey all,
    I'm looking to start the project to freshen my rear subframe/differential bushings on my E30. I've got a question for those who have done this already. I've seen products by Turner, Garagistic, Condor, etc. This car is primarily street car with a very limited track time. I'm thinking I'd go 80a poly but was wondering if anyone had any specific reasons why they'd use one manufacturers over another.

    Thanks all for your help.
Working...
