Default check my review

Hey, I've installed one of them...too lazy to do the other. I'm not sure either. They are so thin that I can't imagine that there would be much movement anyway. I did a review on then a while back.
I don't think that the bump-steer deal has anything to do with those bushings(although I could be wrong). I've noticed less bump-steer on my RS after installing WRX suspension and Sti strut mounts, then dailed in as much front camber as I could. I think that the bump steer is caused more so by changes in suspension geometry as it travels in the "bump" direction (up), than a bump in the road pushing back against the steering rack which has super thin bushings anyway. Its just a theory, anyway. But if you have the time, then $23 for the bushings is not too bad.

I don't even know how to do the driver side one. It doesn't look like you can get the old bushing out unless you remove some power steering lines and loosen up the steering rack quite a bit. And honestly, I can't really tell much between turning left and right. The oem bushings IS still kind of new though.
