    Gauging interest- trailing links w/ brand new STi Group N bushings

    Gents (and ladies ) I do this about once year gauging interest in trailing links that will have pre-pressed STi Group N bushings in them. I have the Subaru "special tool" that allows me to unpress/press these bushings (and a 20 ton press! )

    In addition (for a small fee) I also rent out a tool that allows you to replace the rear bushings (they actually reside in the knuckle, not the link itself) while still on the car- very easy install

    Replacing both these bushings will add about 0 NVH (noise, vibration, harshness), but will go along way in decreasing changes to toe and camber when in a turn (giving you more grip), you'll also see better braking as well (the firmer bushings remove slop from the oe ones)

    The price will remain the same as it has been for the last five years (even though shipping prices have gone up a bunch!)- $145 shipped for a pair of trailing links w/ brand new STi Group N bushings)

    thanks

    Mike

    Still doing this?

    And what's different from getting it from you vs buying it online? What is the tool that you will rent out?

    If you buy this from Mike, you get a second set of trailing links, and the front bushings come already pressed in. It makes the swap easier.

    Nice.

    Does this include everything for the front and rear, or would that require 2 sets?

    How hard is it to change these out?

    as far as I know you can't purchase these w/ the Grp N bushings already pressed in- requires a "special" Subaru tool (and a 15 ton press )

    $145 is for the trailing links and the new front bushings (pressed in of course), the rear bushings you'd have to purchase and then use the tool I have to install them- my rear bushing tool (the rear trailing link bushing resides in the knuckle, not in the actual trailing link) allows a simple install w/o having to remove the rear knuckle (a major operation if you haven't done that- including the pita e-brake assembly!)

    the replacement of the trailing links is pretty straight forward

    I bought a set of these from Mike the last time he offered this, but haven't installed them yet, due to waiting on the rear bushing. In case anyone is interested, TiC just released their version of the rear bushing, and is currently on sale for $10 off MSRP (mine shipped out this morning):
