Fitted some Meyle HD control arm bushes a few weeks ago and as I’d not had the car long before I did it I can’t really remember how hard or soft the ride felt before the swap. The thud I was getting when braking sharply when coming to a stop has gone but the ride seems really harsh, too hash.

What have people fitted and find acceptable.

I’m on 20” wheels with Dunlop Runflats FYI.

Already on 32psi so doubt it’ll make much difference.

Thinking of sticking some OEM or Lemforder ones in.
