Something 90% of folks may want to buy.

I stumbled over this by accident. I really think this link should be put somewhere where anybody in the future can find it, like in the most wanted parts section, or even better a new section called "Hard to find Performance parts".

Good find, those are much less than the MN12 Performance bushings. I wonder how they compare in fit and quality?

I have been using that kit for the last year and a half in my new car. They are plenty stiff. I took the knuckles and bushings to someone with a real press, as my vise would not press these in too easily.

They just fit into the knuckle, not the control arm.

Obviously, they took some of the compliance out of the rear suspension. I believe that it stiffened up the rear a bunch. I have had no wheelhop issues so far after four trips to the strip.

I greased them up really good when I put them in, and I have yet to hear a squeak out of them.

But did you have HWH Before you put the bushings in?
