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

put me down for a set ! This is for a total of 4 bushing correct? (2 per side)

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

yes, it'll be all 4. These will be a upgrade compared to the stock ones.

I would be interested.

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.

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
[/quote]

No need for a press, that why I also like them.

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

I am interested in this product after seeing sokool videos. But it wouldn't be something I can get right now. But none the less I am glad to see a product to get rid of some of the crappy jelly bushings that Mazda provided us with.
[/quote]

Don't worry. We need atleast 20 people commited for this, so you have some time

That was me....

My urethane LCA bushings and full SU mounts completely eliminated all wheel hop on my car. Too bad they had to go with the car. :(
[/quote]

Thank you for the postive input!!! Thes will help a lot of people eliminate some of their wheel hop.



I have bad news for the MS3 guys, these will only fit the normal MZ3. The MS3 bushings are made just for the MS3 control arm, their not interchangeable. And if you wanted to purchased the bushing alone from Mazda, you would have to purchase the entire control arm with it.
