Some have fitted the power flex bushes and had no difference. Others have fitted them and had a harsher feel from them. You pays your money and make your choice it seems.

I bought a 75 with the Powerflex lower mount bush fitted, and while it was noticeable it wasn't that bad.
I wouldn't mind it on a ZT, but I did feel it intruded into the cabin 'ambience' of the 75 a little.

Fitted Powerflex lower arm rear bushes to mine over 10 years ago. Can't say as I noticed much difference at the time, but they appear to be fit and forget as they have done over 108k miles, and they don't feel to have worn at all. The last voided bush lasted 4 years and 83k miles.
