anybody make a front end bushing kit

Hi guys,

just like the title says, I was wondering if anybody made a bushing kit for the front end of the Birds, or if you have to piece it together?

Thanks,

Jamie

I was always under the impression that the front end should use the rubber bushings to allow a certain amount of play. In contrast the rear should be tightened up as much as possible.

A friend of mine had full poly installed in his front end of his cvpi and the shop that aligned it had to redo it like 3 times because of the change in flex, but once they get it its good.
