A bit back I fitted new Polybushes to front suspension. I torqued them up with the car at rest/under load, though I have read that you need to move the car a bit, so the camber settles to normal position.

Just wondering if I need to re do this, as Poly rubbers move around the inner metal tubes (unlike the originals, I think).

Happy Xmas/New year to you all.

Cheers, Dave

Shouldn't be an issue with polybushes as, as you say, the bush isn't bonded to the crush tube.
