    I need to replace my bushing (63K) and was looking for some poly bushings as well. Anybody find out some good news about other options besides the stiff RED Poly's??

    Go thru the UK and try a buy either the blue or orange depending on your needs. I still suggest you also talk with Justin at Lucky8, that is where I just bought my bushings, granted I bought the "All Makes" bushings but he has his connections.

    I wonder if the blue (soft) would last much longer? I imagine the reason the OEM ones have such a short life is mostly about the material they're made of and not the hardness, right?

    The blues

    Dave, why do you wonder that, are the blue bushings available? Last I heard ONLY the Red ones were....not to say that your musings (about the blue) are a moot point but, well...it's kind of a moot point, bro.

    OK, so I confirmed with Justin at www.lucky8llc.com that the orange ones are available. That will be a far better option than the red ones. Contact him for further information and pricing... it's worth a while, and let's get some feedback on how these work.

    Haha, I just love to ask questions and wonder about stuff. Sounds like only the ORANGE and RED are available. I might give the ORANGE a go when the time comes, but I'm not sure I want to be the guinea pig! =)

    I can imagine the ORANGE will still be squeaky... It's kinda the nature of polyurethane.

    source of info?

    Mike, how can you possibly know that?

    Nobody has reported anything on these (orange) polys yet. As far as I know...nobody has them. What they do (or don't do) on a DII or otherwise does not definitively say what they will do on an LR3.

    Lets call it a lot of research, general past knowledge and common sense.
    Blues are over all too soft and don't last well on any vehicle, Red, per the manufactorer of Poly Bushings, are made for racing, that leaves the orange which has always been the happy compromise assuming you don't want to go back to the OEM bushings that don't hold up on a LR3.
