    Rear Control Arm Bushings?

    Have an update on when these will drop?

    May as well do them all at once. Yaknow.

    Working on the cad files as I type this. I am hoping to get all the rear bushings done by this first quarter of this year.

    Hopefully by April 13th in the hands of WXM would be optimal. Car is due there for DSX system and retune anyways.

    I think this is the year of the suspension. Once you release the rears i'd be in for a complete F/R kit.

    Checking in. Lol.

    Admittedly I went ahead and sourced the last of the white line radius arm bushings in existence. There are VERY FEW control arm bushings left.

    You'll be the only game in town. I'm holding out as long as I can.

    The lathe has been tied up with a few other production parts. Once they are done, I will run some test pieces. So far I have Rear upper control arms, Rear lower control arms (Subframe), Shock bushing (hub), Trailing arm bushing (Hub), Cradle inserts, Cradle bushings (full bushing).

    I am a little behind, but hopefully get some things out here real soon.

    I'm going to be replacing my bushings in the next few months. I hope the rears are ready to go very soon!

    If they will be ready in the next week or two, I can hold off. Otherwise I'll be getting another set.

    Tell me about the power mods on your car? Is it usable?

    It realistically is about as aggressive of a PD blower combo I'd go on a true DD 100% street car. I put 15k miles on it this year...

    So now that there's a decent TT kit... I'm wondering if my almost brand-new TF255's are 6 bolt or not... dammit.

    We have been working more on the business than in it lately. I apologize for the wait, but being a small company these things take time. But I can assure you, I have been working on and finalizing more than just rear lower control arm bushings. Give it a little longer.
