XK8 and XKR Parts: Improve Your Ride with Polybushes
Worn bushes can affect the handling and ride of a car. On an XK8 / XKR, they should be changed if you are replacing the ball joints or shock absorbers / springs. However true to form on an XK8 / R, the bushes are unique and require care in replacement.
There is now a new range of British made Polyurethane bushes for the XK8 / XKR range as a direct replacement for the standard XK8 / XKR parts.These bushes are designed to give a taut yet refined ride and will also improve handling without a trade off in excessive vibration. Polyurethane bushes have a much longer life span than normal.
If replacing the bushes, then it is advisable to get a full set kit. This contains four each of front upper and lower wishbone bushes and a set of anti roll bar bushes.
Note that there are two different part numbers, those ending with the suffix CA fit on the front lower wishbone whilst those ending with BB are for the rear lower wishbone – beware as they look the same but are different.
Price for the full set of front suspension polybushes is £255 + Shipping and UK VAT. No VAT to pay if living outside of the EEC Countries

What bushings are made for a 2000 XK8? What would be the cost of a set-shipped to Ft Lauderdale, Florida, 33312?

the standard rubber bush set is available for your 2000 XK8 as well as the featured Polybush set. The original rubber bushes are prone to dirt and oil ingress which means they will wear out earlier. The Polybush set are made from the more durable Polyurethane which means they will have a much longer life span than normal. Ride and handling is also improved.
Relating to costs, the standard front suspension XK8 bush set would be around £357 including shipping to Florida. The Polybush set is in the regtion of £287 including shipping to Florida. Let me know if you are intereted and would like a firm quote on the above.
