Default BF and FG diff bushes $599 supplied and fitted

Pit Lane are now offering to replace the troublesome BF and FG Falcon Sedan differential side and rear bushes for $599 using SuperPro Comfort bushes.

That's correct, $599 to supply and fit, that's less than some others are charging just for the labour to do the job.

Superpro bushes come with a lifetime warranty on the parts

We are able to do other models and use different bushes as requested but price may vary

Ratter,have you had any superpro comfort bushes fail yet?
Im tossing up between comforts and the polyelast bushes for my g6et,what would you recommend and would rwkw levels affect your choice?

Default Re: BF and FG diff bushes $599 supplied and fitted

we have seen 1 side bush get damaged but it appears the bolt broke and caused the damage, it was in a high 400 rwkw car.

your decision needs to be based on how you want the car to feel

Default Re: BF and FG diff bushes $599 supplied and fitted

I want bushes that last alot longer than factory bushes with the reliabiity to floor it when i see fit without the worry of bushes failing,a bit more nvh would be ok for the sake of reliability,car wont be raced and will most likely never see above 280-300rwkw max.
I guess i want it to feel almost factory.
By the sounds of it the comfort bushes are more than strong enough for what i want so no real need to get polyelast bushes unless the polyelast give less nvh,only reason id go for them.

Thanks for your advice Ratter.
i know the newer style side comforts have smaller voids,does the rear also have smaller voids?
Is it the same part number as the old kit?

Hey guys. I am starting to get some clunking and knocking from the rear of my FG. Seems to happen when going over bumps - especially when turning and you go around a bit of a bump.

Is this a sign of the diff bushes needing replacement?

although they can give noises as you described, normally diff bushes are noisy when on and off the accelerator

Interesting - is there anything else that commonly goes wrong that could be causing this?

Either way - I should get it checked.

there are quite a few areas that can give that sort of symptom you are best getting someone to actually look at the car to see where it's coming from

Another thanks to Pitlane for this deal, got this done and car feels better. Tbh I was expecting more nvh as I have these bushes on my territory and at speed I can hear the whine in that(not that it bothers me). The xr feels great, if your thinking of doing it get it done and for the price at Micks cant go wrong.

Hi mick I'm looking in to getting the diff bushes done on my fg gs 315, I have about 350rwkw's and are considering the super-pro comfort bushes, question will these bushes be ok, I would jump at the deal you are offering but are located in NZ, could you give the part numbers for these bushes and should there be anything else I should do while the rear end is out? Sorry for all the questions, any help will be appreciated thanks Geoff

we have these in cars making more power than what you are talking but whether ideal or not is really dependent on what you want from the car, we see many cars that do not drive very nice at all due to some mods but the owners are happy with them

if you are real fussy with your car, you may notice a little more NVH, we have fitted probably over 30 sets and only 1 customer has commented on them negatively

Pitlane did this for me and it made a massive improvement to my gs. Rear end used to clunk about a lot but is now brilliant. Also i cannot say i have noticed any extra nvh at all. If anything its quieter because no thunks anymore.

Hi ratter, everyone has reported how great the superpro bushes are, but one thing that is never really mentioned is how long they last.

In your experience, how many kms should the average driver expect out of these bushes (no drag/circuit/thrashing)? I know its one of those "how long is a piece of string" questions but going from your experience with these bushes what would you expect to get out of them?

Unfortunately it looks like no, we can not source the Superpro Comfort bushes any more as they have been replaced and the new ones are $50 dearer, We are re-assessing prices but it looks like $649 is the new price

Ok, I began to worry when I read the word "no" in your post..

Even at $649 I think it's a good deal, the knocking is driving me mad!

Would you mind letting me know when pricing is finalized so I can book in to have the work done.

Any issues fitting a nolathane one ? Most shops I've spoke to wont do them because the bolt has to be cut to length (I've already got the part)
