Hi all,

I've seen this last weekend on TR250.
Nylon suspension bushes, looking around and they should have been rubber by the diagrams.

Anyone have seen these ?

wan't this a big mod in the 90s?

i remember replacing the rubber bushes on my TR3 for nylon bushes as they were suppose to give a better guidance as they did not move laterally. Not sure if it was an improvement but it seemed a good idea at the time. I do remember they squeaked after a while.

Yes, TriumphTune were selling nylon bushes for all the cars. Seems to have been replaced by poly bushes these days as "the thing to have".
Must beharder than polyurethane, and may have a place on track cars still I expect.

The various nylon type bushes gave/give a harsher ride and the dimension were rather interesting.

I still have an unused TR4A kit that doesn't fit.

The poly bushes fit well and work a treat.

The original rubber items worked  but aged quickly.

Triumph Tune used to sell harder rubber bushes, I think Shore 70 (or was it 90)? Anyway, fitted those to my GT6 in 1986, only replaced two years ago, very good quality.
