    So maybe it isn't the top bush as I've still got the squeak (it must have just hid for a while), but regardless...

    This is photo of the front lower arm bush. Not looking very even. I'm assuming it's now allowing movement front to back under braking. Given the way it looks, is it stuffed?

      I'm also having trouble with some part numbers. Rockauto lists MB109662 as the bit for the lower control arm rear bush for the 1999 Montero, but partsouq lists MB633870. Normally when parts are interchangable this will be listed, but I'm finding no cross over with these parts wherever I've looked. So looking on the Febest auto-parts.com.au site, they only list the MB633870 for the gen2. Under MB109662 they have it for the gen1 pajero's only it seems.

      Anyone happen to know of the same lower control arm rear bush fits between both gen1 and gen2?

      Starting to be tempted to buy the Febest ones, but very iffy on the quality of them. Can find polyurethane here, but crazy prices and not sure I want the ride to be any harsher than what it is currently.

        Stu: You have a NL, which is not necessarily a Gen 2. For starters, there is a body lift, and this may have some bearing on the parts design. I am not sure if the USA got the Gen 2.5, but you may be able to get an idea by comparing part numbers from models a few years earlier. If they differ, then they probably got the Gen2.5 as well. The difference was due to the body lift on the NL, allowing the use of the 5m31 manual transmission. When I had the NSW Mitsubishi rep looking at my NL, he told me that 85% of the parts on the NL were different from previous Pajeros. I can believe that, although most of the parts were probably in the engine area as they transitioned from the 3.0L to the 3.5 DOHC and then the 3.5SOHC engines.

          Thanks erad. I found the right part number on rock auto by searching rather than the parts list for the car itself. I'll order that one. Pity is different warehouse than the other bits I need

          I did find last night that the bush should be the same between all gen 2 including NL on amayama, but different on that bush to gen 1. The other one is the same for all

            Can anyone tell me the mistubishi part number for the upper control arm bushes? Nothing on Partsouq or Amayama, the Febest site lists 2 for the upper arm, so I'm not sure which part number its meant to be

                Thanks whitehillbillies

                Was hoping to just find the bushes. It looks like it's either febest or poly for bushes only. I gather Mitsubishi intended to change the whole arms. that's why can't find part numbers

                I've found poly bushes for $100 for the whole set. I think I'll go that way rather pressing in rubber for up there.

                  most poly bushes we have found fail pretty quick, if you cant get rubber we use the superpro ones. I had repco's poly bushes (rebranded nolathene according to my mate who worked there) and they disintegrated in 1000kms. my superpro that I replaced them with are still good after 40000kms

                    I used poly bushes for the rear suspension of my Range Rover. I greased the mating surfaces before assembly and they lasted for years.

                      I was iffy about febest for the upper control arms given they don't have a stellar reputation, seem to be the only rubber ones I can find. Price was cheap on them though at $12.50 each, but pulled the trigger last night on White line poly for upper control arm and rear trailing arm to diff.

                      I'm trying febest for the other rear bushes but they were out of the trailing arm to diff that I needed. I figure they at least look easier to change on the rear than control arm if they chew out quickly.

                      Wonder if I should have just gone febest for the front given what you said stu. Time will tell on the whiteline. I'll check their warranty conditions, but I'm assuming it will include needing to be installed by factory trained yowies and lubricated only with unicorn poo or distilled easter bunny urine

                        Stu, you forgot to mention the requirement for a dodge tide and new moon and whilst facing north!

                          Ha ha! How could I forget the conditions at installation time.

                          Warranty looks fairly tame actually, keep receipt, warranty for lifetime of product....which is not defined by them. Not sure how off road goes though, but if it lasts at least a few years I'll be happy I guess
