Okay, so I have been getting a huge request for these. So i spoke with one of the companys i work with and I get a Harden rubber verision for us, that would be better than the OEM ones.

What would you guys think?

Here is a pic of them. The price would be around $130 shipped

we would just need 20 commited buyers and they'll take 1-2 weeks to be made

They will ONLY fit the normal MZ3

Unless your control arms are binding or squeaking, then there is really no point in swapping out the bushings. However, if you're rebuilding your front suspension, then by all means go for it.

Re: GI; Front Lower Control Arm Bushings

How hard is this compare to stock ones? Can they make delrin bushings?

wheel hop.

bottom line i would be very interested in these, would you need a press to install these on the factory control arms or is this like a simple bolt on type of thing. because if thats the case id be all over it and I now dozens if not many more would be as well

Re: GI; Front Lower Control Arm Bushings

for $100 bones i am most deffinatly in. i am amping up my suspension in every way i can without lowering the car and i have been searching high and low for bushings........blows my mind that they dont make bushings for this car.




you should see if you can slightly off set the larger bushing to increase caster. what is the stock caster setting OEM? it may benefit from more caster.

Re: GI; Front Lower Control Arm Bushings

these will work with both Speed 3's and MZ3's? I will pass on the good word to a few others if they havent seen this yet, if this gets the go ahead consider me in.

They should fit both, but I will check the part numbers to make sure

Not a bad price for low production numbers. A block of 80A urethane costs $70.

Any chance for an offset bushing, I don't think anyone would mine 0.5-1 a degree of neg camber.
