    last chance! - trailing links w/ Grp N bushings

    haven't done these for awhile and was going to order some bushings and links and wanted to see if anyone else was interested before I order

    you'll receive a pair of oe trailing links w/ brand new Grp N bushings pressed in (this requires a special tool and large press which I have )

    price will be the same as in the past, $145 shipped (lower 48)- I'll be asking for a small deposit before making the order

    If your interested let me know

    thanks

    Mike

    shoot me a pm if your interested

    I do also have the tool for the rear bushing- very well worth doing as well- anyone who gets a set of trailing links I bump up the list for the tool

    had a couple of pms- I'll answer the question here- why do it?

    the oe bushings are soft, soft bushings flex/squirm- this cause camber and toe changes which reduces traction- firm these up- traction increases

    what I really like about all the Grp N bushings is they are still rubber (just firmer) so they add little to no increase in NVH (noise/vibration/harshness) the same can't be said about urethane or metal bushings

    the trailing links as the run longitudinal to the car, w/ firmer bushings can also improve braking as well- again less flex/squirm

    win:win

    They also helped significantly with the remaining driveline lash even after doing trans bushings, diff bushings & subframe lock.

    I was going to let this run a week or so to gauge interest. Then order the links/bushings, I'm going to be out of town the second week of June, so I'd get them done and out the following week.

    I can certainly hold off on shipping yours till a certain date (if you want a pair).

    I'm pretty sure I talked to you this a while back, and it never went anywhere. Unexpected expenses came up, and I let it die.

    I'm definitely down for this one - let me know where/when/amount to Paypal...

    I'll take myco's advice and do both ends
