I'd second that but add that they'll go the extra mile even if you're not a customer!!

I can definatly say they go the extra mile. Had a slight issue and Spud had it resolved quicker than a quick thing in quick land being chased by a quickthing eating monster.

Obvioulsy I can't comment on other companies bush kits, only our own.

We produce our own kits, we don't buy from other companies and add a mark up. We use stainless steel for the crush tubes not mild steel, these are machined from solid bar on a CNC lathe to high tolerances. We don't use thick wall tube cut on a band saw (I've seen this done)

Yes, we are a bit more, but that's because of the cost of the materials and method of manufacture that we use.

For comparison I've listed everyones bush kits below along with a picture of their product, prices include VAT & postage....

GTS.....64.63



Rally Design....96.50



Saturn Sports Cars....108


3GE Components....112.70




Kind regards

John

Silicone grease should be fine Adrian, that's what I intend to use on my final build up.

Interesting that all but 3GE's bush sets use the same photograph?

Still the UK's biggest & cheapest range of parts to suit the Haynes Roadster!

3ge, how can you use this quote under your name when you have listed the price of 4 sets of bushers and pins and you are the most expensive? Isnt it contradicting your slogan? Im not trying to cause an argument but think they are expensive.
