Default Power Flex 23mm rear anti roll bar bush

Hi, all has anyone fitted a power flex 23mm anti roll ball bush to there car?
Power flex don't make one for our cars, so I bought a generic one. Got the 23mm right but there is to much mass on the bush.
Any help gratefully received.

What do they do that the original rubber ones don't?

23mm for a Mitsubishi are only £17.60 - text says only Mitsubishi though https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/MITSUBISHI-...iABEgKKX_D_BwE

I never thought about fitting the 23mm from the 75 onto the rear of my zt. Would not put it past Rover that the they copied the 75 front for the ZT rear to save money.
Will get mine swaped could not hirt as have already paid for a set.

Thats the ones i have bought. They fit around the bar perfectly but there is to much mass when it comes to clanping them in.
If you look at the rear bush on our cars, they are quite small might be a reason that powerflex did not make any, could not see the point.

How'do Charlie - I had a wee look about out of curiosity - from what I can see the ZT Rear ARB Bushes appear to be a bit wider than the Fronts i.e Clamping more length of the Anti Roll Bar.

I don't think Front Bushes will be suitable for fitting to the Rear

A call or email to Rimmer Bros may be worthwhile - to check overall dimensions and any variation between Front and Rear Bushes
