Default rear upright bearing? (rear trailing arm bearing)

Does anyone make a rear upright bearing? All my rear suspension is spherical bearings but this one. I would like to make it all spherical.

Also does anyone make one that I can press into the stock anti lift kit for the front contol arm? I have to utilize the stock housing in the front for auto x rules.

SPC has one that looks like it might fit, if there is enough room to drill out the inner spacers slightly (it's 12mm, I believe that bolt is m14).

15635 has the right od and width, but the id is too small. And I don't know how well it will actually fit in the upright, I just based that off the dimensions on the whiteline part.

Maybe if you cut some snap ring grooves?

And then for the front MSI is the only place I know of that makes something to go there and it is a new housing as well.

Probably overkill. But with Ikeya Formula rear arms you press that bush out and press in a solid metal slug that allows you to mount the roll center adjuster part of the kit. All joints are spherical. And the hardware isvery meaty.

I have a set on my Forester.

MSI also makes a replacement front control arm /bushing/bearing and it seems they also make a rear knuckle bearing replacement.

This is probably not allowed in his Autox class.

Msi makes the rear upright one.

Now I need a rear front control arm bearing. Not front.

In sm those and moving suspension part is legal so the formula kit is fine.

Ya, as far as I know the only people with bearings for the rear control arm is MSI and like stated above it has it's own housing.

I believe Cusco manufactures a bearing kit for this location. Unless you want to learn Japanese, you might just wanna talk to MSI (or other rally shop of your choosing).

The cusco usa guys are pretty helpful and will reply to an email in english.

From what I can tell the part number is 660 464 NV
The 'ALK bushing" is 660 464 CV

http://www.cuscousainc.com/downloads...e_09052014.pdf

I have never actually seen them and don't know about availability, and would be surprised if there is a set in stock in the US. The place I get cusco from has them in the system at least.
