Hi All , Having just bought a 2002 Jimny already fitted with a 4" lift kit, it needs some work done to it , I have noticed the rear panhard bushes are the wrong side of healthy, would be better to fit polyurethane I think, Question is , will the standard bushes fit , I see correction bushes are available or is that just for front ? also they appear to be sold in pairs so 3 pairs required ?
Have just came across to Suzuki from the dark side of Land Rover :laugh:

Hi and welcome :)
I think you're confusing yourself panhard bushes do not have castor correction
correction bushes go in radius arm/trailing arm or hockey stick (i think thats a landy term)
Panhard has 2 bushes one either end

These are for panhard rod other makes/brands available

If you can put a picture up that would help people identify
Does it have poly bushes in? or rubber ones?
Has it got corrected rear arms or standard ?
Up load some pics of your suspension set up front and rear
then we will be able to advise better ;)

Radius arm bushes can be bought in the Big Jimny shop or from the Jimny Bits website.

To get them out I drilled the rubber out and tapped the metal outer ring out with a screwdriver and hammer.

Then the new one needs a press to be pushed in with, either a hydraulic or a fly press.

Poly bush replacements don't need a press and can be fitted with a length of studding and wood with holes in. They feel better on the road but transfer more shock to the chassis mounts, which when rusty can break off when in very bad shape.

Poly bushes do flex like rubber ones though, despite some suggesting they don't. They last longer too.
