Real men attack them with channel locks and screwdrivers. Well, at least my buddy Duncan did when he did mine. :sheepish:

They are! I had one vendor (guess who!) send me a Helix rear sway bar 2 years ago & it still isn't here.
Oh well I guess I can put the rear bushings in, in stages and find out which one makes the biggest difference.

do install instructions come with these parts? i dont know exactly what they are... im sure if i found the parts on the car i could take stuff apart to get to it and reinstall the new bushings and what-not... im just wondering how much time it should take me to do this?

i was shifting today getting on the freeway and heard the good ol "clunk" and id like to eliminate that if possible.

Check the product descriptions on our site - there's links in those for installation. The rear diff mount bushing install instructions are a work of art, but I think I'll add Kevin's install technique.

Not really because most everyone has one or two of the items that would be in it. I can certainly start to put something together though, and see what you think. Let me know.

Yup, it's one and the same.

The 1990-1994 n/a Legacies & 1991-1994 turbo legacies all have the same bracket & bushings.

Do you currently already have something available?

Nope. We've run into this once before about a 18 months ago. The customer tried to drum up enough interest among the old school guys, but it just wasn't there. For an easy to shoot part like that we still need to sell well over 100 sets to even come close to breaking even on tooling and material charges.

For a one timer like this I suggest talking to your local machinist. Have them chuck up some shore 80A urethane rod stock in a big diameter and turn some for you. That would be the cheapest and quickest way to go.

Or, if you're rich and feel like buying one set of REALLY expensive ones we can work something out.

that sounds like a really good idea to me. i dont really know all the different manufacturer's bits... it'd be nice if you could do a little "package" and say "this is what it will do overall for your ride."

Just out of curiosity....what would the costs be? If you prefer, you can PM me.

I'm sure you could sell 100, however it may not be a right away thing....or guarantee that'd you sell 100, so I understand.

Noise Vibration and Harshness. People have complained this combo or parts inceases NVH, but I didn't notice any increase and I did them all individually over time.

Did you buy all the parts from us? if so I'll give you a refund to bring you back down to the package price.

Ron: i got your "package" almost as soon as it came out


and yes. it's a MAJOR difference. im on a stock gearbox, so i'm not quite sidestepping my clutch, but just the feel of the rear end of the car is well worth the $$ spent.

my only complaint/joy is the rear end comes out even easier than before. maybe it's time to bump the cusco swaybar down from full-stiff.

I had whitelines Subframe bushings and it created a whine... it was annoying so I took them out.


Im guessing the kartboy bushings would do the same thing?

Just installed the outrigger bushings (comfort) yesterday. Started at 10PM done by 10:30 PM. Truly, a very easy install.

I agree with others. The rear feels more connected to the motor and has much better throttle response.

I noticed a very slight whine at 65-70 that I hadn't before, but it's not bad.

Can't wait to do the TiC differential bushings.

I received unabombers rear end kit the other day from TIC. I have a question as to why(and how) a rear alignment may be needed when doing the whiteline locking bolts for rear diff. Do you mean physical alignment(ie; manhandling rear to line up bolt holes) or do you mean this throws off wheel alignment. You mean physical alignment right?

TIC- word on the fender braces yet from manufacturer?

Over time your rear subframe may slip to a ****-eyed position. if you got the car aligned after that then the wheels are straight and true to the alignment settings, but not the rear subframe.

When you install the locking bolts it locks the rear subframe straight with the chassis. This may affect your alignment settings.

I talked to our guy in San Diego the other night (actually he called me during dinner, but I indulged him since he sounded lonely). They should be coming my way really soon. I'll try and call him this weekend, and see if I can get a solid ETA.
