Default Suspension Bushes

why are the Suspension Bushes 104.70 on 3ge and only 55.00 from gts? How can they be so different in price?

Steering racks seem quite cheap on there too. And boss adapters for steering wheels.

I have never had any dealings with gts and i'm sure there are some good items available but from the looks of the rear top wishbone adjusters I would be dubious of any items.....

Stuff from 3ge is made of metal and nylon, stuff from GTS is made using a light mixture of Nitrogen,oxygen and minor gasses.

you get what you pay for .... go for 3ge. ive tried using cheaper ones but they are never the correct size!
there are only 2 companies that i trust, Talon motorsport and 3ge for the bits that talon dont sell.

My bushes cost 15 for the material I made them from delrin not the same as poly ones but im happy with them.
of course i machined them myself so that helped too.
my crush tubes cost 3.50 for material from local scrap yard and yes it was stainless but kin hard to machine

Lots of people here have had problems with GTS if you look through old threads so i wouldnt bother unless you dont mind waiting 6 months for your parts .
SATURN also do them for 98quid and at least you can get hold of handyandy or spud on here if you have any probs.

I have got a lot of my bits from saturn including the bushes and crush tubes and the quality of the items and workmanship is first class. wouldn't hesitate to recommend spud and andy to anyone. They are both more than willing to go the extra mile for customers
