These bushings for all intense purposes as well, are about as darn close as you can get to a rigid mount without being solid. I have seen cheap bearings that don't last well as these bushes do. TIC did an excellent job finding a killer recipe for these parts. This is why we are using them now instead of our previous supplier.
I am curious as to why there wasn't an ALK version of the housing? Not that I care personally- I feel without a spherical front bushing there isn't enough ALK geometry to make a real difference. But people being people are fixated on these tiny things that explode way bigger then they should. Is this why you decided on just 1 mount type?

Also ok with the GB staying up longer.
