Thought I best update:-

Front control arm bushes, S13 do fit, but make sure you get a 31.6mm (I think it's .6) ones rather than the 34mm ones, or it won't fit.

Default Front bush replacements

Hi I've read the postings about replacing bushes with superflex ones, it's all become a little too confusing and some comments are contradicting others. Can someone please clarify which bushes I should be buying for the front only, lets forget about the back for now, just the front end so we don't confuse things.

Ok for starters which of these is right for the front trailing arms SPF1483K or SPF1009K?

I also want to replace all the bushes on the front are these numbers correct

2 x SPF 1485/25K front and rear anti roll bar to body bushes (4) 25mm
4 x SPF 0927 front tie rod bush (strut bar)
8 x SPF 2092B front anti roll bar link pin bushes 10mm
8 x SPF 0903 rear anti roll bar link pin bushes 8mm

is that everything are there anymore bushes for the front

Superflex have given me a price of £216.00 inc vat and free postage for these bits inc SPF 1483K but I want to check they are defo right before I order and mess everyone around.

Neither going by their websites description, I'm sure I measured mine (as I've have a mix of S12 and S13 arms and learnt the hard way there were two sizes of bushes).
S12's and early S13's are stepped to 31.6(ish)mm, later S13 are 34(ish)mm.

Edit: Just checked powerflex and they list:

31.6mm
and
35mm

So I wasn't far wrong according to them. I have fitted powerflex bushes to the front arms of an S12 (and still have them sat in the garage).

Default Powerflex / Superflex

Great so I am really not sure what to buy for the front, are all the other parts correct, how can it be that there is so much confusion over this.

If you were replacing all the front end rubbers what would you do?

Are the other parts I've re posted from the original posting correct and if not why haven't they been removed from the thread??

Default Bushes

Good stuff. I've ordered them from superflex excluding the front trailing arm ones just in case they are wrong.

I've also spotted on ebay the nylon white ones for the rear sub frame I got them for £30.00 the set free postage just search silvia S12 bush. Also on ebay track rod ends for £2.99 each !! plus postage bit cheaper than eurocarparts £30.00 + vat. There are only a couple left so worth buying to keep I think.

I have a pair of front wishbones with new powerflex bushes fitted, thats what I did.

They have never been on the car. I was going to go back to running S12 arms, but realised I'd gone away from them for a reason. so not much use to me, unless my new S13 arms turn out to be early ones.

Default S12 arms

Why have you gone away from S12 arms?? How much do you want for them?

I have fitted all the front bushes excluding the arms and can confirm they all fit perfectly they are the part numbers from the list but I will post the exact new numbers from the packets as they are slightly different from the original post on this thread.

!!!!!! A word of caution the tie rod arms did not come with the metal sleeve insert and I had to get them made by a local engineering firm, Clifton Engineering, Coopies Lane Industrial Estate, Morpeth, Northumberland. They charged me £20 for the two !! The original ones were rotten and split hence the steering issues I was having which is now cured. Even the drop link bolts were rotten and probably original 24 years old!! I just bought some matched bolts for £2 and everything is spot on as I got the tracking laser set too by Kwik Fit £31.95 although they didn't have the settings for an S12 they just set at 0 parallel
