    Welcome to the biggest pain on the Grand Cherokee.

    Whatever you get, just understand that stuff like Crown is rubbish and will fail very quickly.

    Try and find somebody who casts poly bushes.

    R7560 for both upper and lower arms, seems fair!

    Not specific to the GC, but make sure you deal with reputable suppliers.

    I spent proper money on a previous vehicle, not even 3 months/1500km later, bushes collapsed.

    They do many different vehicles products, have used them for many years, and so do many race car enthusiasts etc.

    Would think he could assist for less than what you are quoted, obviously making up a few sets should help bring the unit price down.

    Chaps the contact point and Andre`s Rubber is Byron. By control arms are being stripped as we speak and taken to their shop. Please feel free to ring him, he has been very helpful and the entire lot, upper/lower and stabilizer bar bushes should come in at under 1k!!!!! http://www.andresrubber.com/contact

    Awesome - what are they going to be made out of? Rubber or Poly.

    I've never understood the concept of hard poly bushes. The whole point of the bush is to bit a bit soft to absorb vibration? or no?

    I gave a Bulli a set of stuffed WJ control arms at one stage, he was going to investigate.

    Maybe send him a PM.
