Anyone recommend any particular kits for replacing the rear suspensions bushes?

Theres a few kits on ebay, just wondered if anyone had used any/recommended a specific brand

Many good kits out there, all doing very much the same thing.
I'm running Prothane bushes all round on mine and very happy with them. Much cheaper than most of the name brands too.

I bought a complete front and back from SBITS for around that price above but that was maybe 4 years ago.
If you want to contact Pete @ sbits he may not reply too quick as I seem to remember he goes to lemans and that is this weekend I think.

Last time I checked (a couple years ago now) he was more expensive *and* didn't come with ARB bushes.

You are right about the arb bushes and I seem to remember he had a deal on as he got a few kits in.

looks like the one, and it looks like its front and rear. Dont mind ordering from Amazon USA as im on no rush at all. be good to get all the bushes off to refurb all the suspension components

It says total kit, but is it really everything i need to refresh the front and rear end? seems cheap compared to the super pros ive had expeirence with on mx5's

the kit doesn't include the rear toe bushes. the inner ones are easy enough to find but the outer ones in the hub are harder to track down. think I'm going to get 14mm bolt toyota ones.

That's because they are not bushes, they are bearings. Personally I wouldn't replace the inner with a bush.

Have you got some measuring calipers? If so could you measure the thickness of the washers, and the inner and outer diameter? I've lost the washers from my kit 😕
