If chg to new stock bush will still have squeaky sound, might as well upgrade to poly bush that will last longer as it is more durable.

Cost about same as stock as will also have some squeak.

Hee hee. They did not offer me that option.

The squeaky sound only happen on rainy days + a few days after that.

Thanks bros.

The suspension work he told me will take a whole day for both sides. Including bushings plus shocks. I still feel like just changing bushings first only without shocks. Curious to see which will fix the sound. Front end does feel a bit wobbly.

Poly bushes i had them on my previous evo 8. Can feel very stiff. For a C5 i think stick to stock bushings is my preference. Thanks for the recommendation though bro. Did you install to your ride?

Checked with Trans Hua also. Shocks currently no stock thats why was thinking try the bushings first.

if you do it together, total labour cost should be lesser then you do it on 2 separate occasion.

I think it is fair

You should try calling kian hua too. They might have. Also good to compare prices. Dun forget the price they quote you over the phone is without GST one
