Last month, I replaced both the felt lower and plastic upper bushes on my steering column. The car is a 1983 City, which is my daily driver.
Initially, everything was great, no movement in the column or rattles at idle- it felt like a new-ish car! However, within a few weeks, both bushes are showing so much slack, they're worse than the (35 year old) originals that they replaced!
The parts came from 'Minimine' via ebay. Does anyone supply any quality parts nowadays? Can I fit later parts to my 1983 column? I know Rover changed the design.
