Thirded!

But with a set cost for just the rears for us unlucky folks with the odd body north american edition.

I believe though the Sway bar bushings are the same. I need to replace mine as the rubber it is cracking.

Well enough interest has been created for me to make something up, gotten a few emails as well. BUT I know there is a big difference between people voicing there support for something and and actually paying for it! So these kits, will be made to order only, out of my existing stock. Watch this space for more details.

The MK4 we have is very different from the swifts he got there.

As far as I know, the bushings will all work, except the offset ones for the front. IIRC

All the bushings work from the MK2/3 on the North American MK4/5 even the front offset caster bushings. Only bushing from MK2/3 I had a problem with was for the rear sway bar mounts to the body.

Nothing has to be modified for the complete upgrade. Just press old out and new ones in.


To answer the part about the large stud for the front control arms inner bushing:
MK2/3 and MK4/5 stud diameter is the same, but the MK2/3 tapers down at the nut making it seem like it is a smaller diameter. But it's the same. Thats why woodie had to drill the lower brace holes bigger to fit.

I have all the poly MK2/3 bushing on my North American MK4. Even the offset front caster bushings.

Haha if you manage to get 10 people to buy up in a single group buy Swiftjersey, I'll give you a full set free. I'm only offering this because I know it won't happen :lol: After being a participant in many group buys over a 5 year period, 90% have fallen through, and the ones that have gone through are only involving 2 or 3 people, but please prove me wrong!!!!

We have at least 5 people on this thread whose interested, so c'mmon people, lets go for it 5 more then we have at least 12.5 % off the retail price.

i think more people will be coming in if you give us a BETTER deal. Spread the word people! This is a nice mod coparable with bigger sway bars which costs double (i think)

May the teamswift force be with us!

Oh if ten people buy in one group buy, I can defiantly improve the price. But the difference between people making a suggestion they are interested, and people actually forking over the money are two very different things. I know it sounds a little morbid, but that's just been realistic.

You are a young member grasshopper, you have much to learn /end asian voice. My youthful enthusiasm to push group buys died many years ago :lol: I'm happy to sell in batches of one, but wish you the best to get some members together.

Yes they will fit your swift.

a succesfull group buy is possible, if you only push through it. why not give your details as a "supplier" in the group discount section under "group buy on poly urethane bushings." it wont hurt if you're gonna try it.

I made a decision a few months ago not to overly push my products on any Suzuki forums. As well as being as being a supplier, I'm a Suzuki enthusiast first on the forums, and a supplier second. I'm just going to do the occasional small deals for forum members, and let my website run on it's own merit without becoming a leach on the forums.

Totally forgot about this thread! Prices have eventually been increased due to external price increases beyond my control.

Hi,

I want to buy such material in conjunction with exhaust 4-2-1. You know how many days it takes to get the material to Spain? And as payment?

Forgive but as I write I speak Portuguese and Spanish and I am using a translator ; D
