  1. Mk2 Suspension, Steering & Chassis
    Hi guys, Ive just taken delivery of a full set of Powerflex bushes for my PFL 2006 ST-3 as the old ones are generally on the way out. Are there any nuts/washers/bolts that will likely need replacing along with the bushes? I recall having to replace a number of them on my previous car many...
  2. Mk2 Suspension, Steering & Chassis
    My front ARB bushes look pretty shot and I've also got some knocking from the front that as far as I can see I've eliminated from all other suspension components. I've had a quick look today and it looks tight but doable without dropping the subframe, but just sounding out in case anyone has...
  3. Mk2 Suspension, Steering & Chassis
    Hi, I've worn through a set of tyres on the rear in 5000 miles. All 4 tyres were changed at the same time and the fronts usually wear much faster. All 4 tyres were Maxxis Victra-Sport 01 which I got when the wheels were refurbed (they are rubbish by the way, I will be putting Michelin PS04s...
  4. Mk2 Interior, Heating, Air Con, Noises & Smells
    Hi guys, Look for ideas what this noise could be. I get a rattle coming from under the car, it sounds louder from the left than from the right hand side, and if I have windows all closed it can't be heard inside the car. When I have the passenger side window down and driving along an uneven...
  5. Mk2 Suspension, Steering & Chassis
    Hi guys. I wonder if you can help. On my last MOT I had the following advisory: "Front lower arm bushes cracked" I'm now looking to get the problem sorted. Am I correct in thinking this is the part in question: Am I also right in thinking that Ford don't sell the bushes alone, and a whole...
  6. A and K Motorsport
    Thanks to A & K Motorsport for great service. Ordered my full set of lower rear bushes, wishbones and droplinks on friday and they arrived today (Monday), and probably would have come quicker if it wasn't the weekend. :-) Thanks for answering all my questions too, can't recommend them highly...
  7. Focus ST Mk3 Non Technical Discussion
    Took the drive down to Collins today for upgraded bushes and gearbox mount and couldn't be happier. Massive difference with torque steer and now am not fighting to keep it straight. Want to thank Gary for his hospitality and quick work and Martin for his advice and letting me drive his ST250...
  8. Mk2 Suspension, Steering & Chassis
    I will try explain this best i can so please bear with me folks. About a month ago, near or near enough, I purchased the uprated hard race wishbones and bushes,fitted them and all was well. I then needed to replace the drop links next so I bought the hard race uprated ones and fitted them, again...

  10. Mk3 Suspension, Steering & Chassis
    I have just been to Collins Performance at Congleton and had replacement Polyurethane Powerflex Bushes fitted to the front suspension rear mounts. Gary, from Collins, explained that the original bushes are made from rubber and are oil filled which allow excessive front to back movement of the...
  11. Mk3 Petrol Engine, Exhaust and Induction
    Not unlucky for me, I had a great day with Gary, Martin and the guys at Collins Performance, Congleton, Cheshire. I've been unhappy for some time with the excessive torque steer and wheel spinning of my Focus ST Mk3 especially after I installed a Bluefin re-map. I got them to install some...
  12. Mk2 Brakes, Wheels & Tyres
    Hi Guys, Right I've got an issue with the steering on my 2008 ST. A while back I checked both the front bushes and they were on there way out so I have Ford fit two brand new arms at £246 each! It is my understanding that these arms come with both the front and rear bushes in them and the ball...
  13. Mk2 Suspension, Steering & Chassis
    I own a 08 st- 48,000 miles. When driving over rough ground their is a clonking, knocking sound coming from the rear. I think it must be bushes or suspension rather than plastics or exhaust. Any common problems? Thanks.
  14. Mk2 Suspension, Steering & Chassis
    Noticed a problem which is now getting worse- my car is getting worse at going round corners! I'm pretty sure it's just not my right foot getting heavier. I originally thought it was down to poor surfaces, or greasy roads, etc, but then more recently I've noticed the wheels (mainly front I...
