Hey and welcome

poly bushes will make the ride alot harder. some places do a range where youve got soft (slightly firmer than normal) to a racing hard version

Hi and welcome. I work to the addage "if it aint broke, don't fix it". When the bushed need replacing you should think about it but if you are currently happy with the ride then save your money.

Did it cost much to install the brace?

Thanks no one told me this when I got a price great info - I will go a little firmer only I think as I have 17's with very low profiles on so the rides a bit hard already. Thanks again.

Fitted it myself, brace cost me £160 so I may just wait to buy bushes but gone a bit obsessed as the brace has made such a difference. The 9-3 steers like a pram that's why I got the brace, just want to tweak it a bit more.
