    LCA rear bushing replacement, OEM or aftermarket?

    I hit a pot hole the other day and noticed some oil like fluid leaking from the bottom of my car, looks to be coming from my LCA's rear bushing. So, my question is, should I replace it with an OEM bushing, or go with an aftermarket bushing? If I should go aftermarket, which brand should I go with? Thanks!

    Unless you compete in Auto-X:
    Anti-lift/caster - control arm lower inner rear bushing - Suspension

    ALK is one of my FAVORITE modifications.

    Awesome, I was looking at those as an option, I just didn't know if it was worth going aftermarket over oem.

    Unless you compete in motorsports where classing will kill you (and by "compete" I mean you're looking to place rather than enjoy yourself and improve times throughout the day), abso****inglutely!

    An ALK will put you in a class competing against cars that have heavy modifications (cars modified for track use, not street use), and honestly, you stand little/no chance against.

    Nope, I am not looking to place or compete. Just looking to enjoy some spirited driving and self fulfillment.
