As sideways said the suspension bushes in the lancer are not available from HM. They sell the lower arm with all the bushes attached and no bushes separately. That's why they say we dont have bushes to replace as it comes along with the lower arm.

Currently I dont think the bushes need to be changed but in a couple of months when I plan to change to synthetic oil, and get a complete flush and various other parts cleaned I will also replace the bushes from an independant garage.

e_L, i dint get the taught part?

If this fellow now goes and ICEs it instead of Mivecing it, a couple of us boys are going to get together and beat him so bad, he will turn black and Blau and orange, and move to Mumbai or Delhi. Somebody's gonna get a hurt real bad!

Well my CD changer stopped working and my rear speakers are going phurr phurr.

Anyways not for a while. This 20K repair job will take a little time for dad to get over before he lets me do anything else.

These would be helpful:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...ransplant.html (performance mods for a lancer... MIVEC engine transplant) (performance mods for a lancer... MIVEC engine transplant)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...cer-mivec.html (Mitsubishi Lancer - MIVEC) (Mitsubishi Lancer - MIVEC)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...my-lancer.html (What engines can I import for my Lancer..??)

3 lacs is a little optimistic from what I learnt... may go above that.
