Plus2 Front Wishbone Bushes (Spyder)

PostPost by: gavk » Mon May 13, 2019 3:16 pm

Good afternoon,

I am wondering if a Spyder Zetec +2 uses the same front wishbone bushes as a standard +2?

Spyders website has a set of 8 rubber bushes for approx £85 Inc VAT.

SJS has their bushes for about £30 less.

Since my 65 profile tyres offer ample compliance I am wondering if poly bush may be the way to go and if so could I use a wishbone poly bush kit for a std +2.

Any information appreciated as always including views on polybushes in elans.

Thanks

Gavin

Far as I know both standard Lotus and Zetec are normal Triumph Herald / Vitesse / GT6 front suspension.

So you could look at Triumph suppliers as well.

I've been doing further research on the Superflex website.

(Baby) Elan has same bushes as +2 here...

Triumph Herald etc have a different kit....

Thinking of buying the 1st kit above, is there anyone else that can confirm Spyder Zetec +2 Tubular Wishbones use same bushes as a std +2?

Thanks
