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

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.

no, these should help reduce the EPIC wheelhop from stock MS3 bushings.

Maybe after a full solid mount setup and traction bars. I would do these as a last resort, but whatever, I drive an MZ3 and the Speed3s obviously have more torque to torture the suspension.

It just seems like people just buy shit because they can, not because it will actually improve the car, you know? That was the inspiration for my earlier post.

it most definitely improves the car. especially mz3.

you're welcome.

so anyway this is not at all, even in the remotest, "just buying shit because you can". this is a real solution to a real problem -- tranny destroying wheelhop of stock MS3s.

anyway it's pretty obvious you aren't intersted in the least in this GB, why piss on the thread for everyone else?

definitely a good thing for the transmission if you do a lot of racing. and will probably reduce wheel hop easier than changing engine mounts will, although that will improve the feel of the car in other ways too.

surprisingly I have noticed wheel hop a lot less often and much less severe than I did on my old MZ3. and I am still on all factory mounts, but yeah this is unfortunate news for us speed owners. hopefully someone will make them for us someday....take me off teh list :(
