    I replaced my flogged out standard with superpro in my SSV sedan about 6 months ago, i definitely notice they are firmer but far from harsh and am very happy with them.

    Few weeks ago replaced a mates SSV ute strut mounts with KYB rubber mounts and its hard to tell any difference between the ride in mine.

    I have the Superpro urethane versions in a Maloo, and Superpro Polylast versions(OEM replacement) on a Redline ute.

    I prefer the urethane versions, makes the steering feel really precise.

    Both types will be an improvement over the factory strut tops.

    Is there much of a difference in ride quality between the urethane and polylast versions?

    The ride is definitely 'harsher' with the urethanes, but still very comfortable.
    The polylast is slightly stiffer than factory, but doesn't increase NVH levels, and should outlast the factory crap...

    I'll fit urethanes to the Magnum later this year, they should outlast the car...

    nothing from my superpro's, i always install some grease on the top of the mount where it contacts the body.

    Superpro supply grease for the urethane version, but not required for the polylast version.

    No noises at all.

    just fitted them and new castor and lower arm bush's on the lowered suspension, the rubber ones got hammered after 10,000klm there is a very slight increase in noise (could also be the other bush's too) definately much better.

    Is it difficult to chase the castor and lower arm bushes? I'm wondering what labour cost i should expect

    $200 including labour/wheel alignment, had the whole arm done, so new bush's and ball joint on it, arms were $270 a set, also did lower control arms, $200 a set, if you did just bushs it would be cheaper parts wise but labour will be a little more to replace the bush's etc
