Welcome, you can join me in the queue for welding! :P

Although mine is far more extensive..... I can point you in the direction of my two build threads if that sort of thing interests you. ;)

Dude, just read through your post more and all I can say is; SCREW THAT!

A Polyurethane Trailer Arm Bush is cheaper and easy enough to fit depending on which one it is. I have them fitted to my GTi and I am in the process of fitting a full bush kit. All Poly Bushes. :D

Heck, I'll give you my old one if I have to! :lol:

Let me know if you want a Poly Bush and I'll show you where to go. :)

Mate Poly bushes are way cheaper than the rubber shite Toyota are offering.

£62 for all four and they will last forever, far longer than Toyota Genuine... I don't know if they would sell them separately.

If push comes to shove, I'll get my standard bush and send it to you for free, other than postage. ;)

Dear early spec car model person,

is rubber shite a Milton Keynes Resource speciality? Do they make them from old roundabouts.... or is this just a section for general discussions? Unless its news, in which case it needs moved, together with the roundabouts.

aw, shucks.... I have a moderator oan ma tail!

It's £125 for a bit of rubber! :o Not something I'd pay... instead, all he has to do is pay what, £3 for postage? :lol:

I know what I'd do..... :rolleyes:

And I dunno where you get them for the RAV4. :P
