Installed mine this week (May 20th, 2013). Wished the two packets of moly grease mentioned in the instructions were in the package instead of just one. Waiting new tires and rims so I don't have a butt report. I will install the Whiteline transmission bushing (with Perrin Performance transmission T product) and Whiteline steering bushings along with replacing transmission and rear end fluids with AMSOIL products before getting on the road with Weds 105s 18x8 and 245/35/18 Michelin Super Sports. Looking forward to niceness beyond expression!

Hot Rod Heaven is just one more mod away.

I finished the bushing swap yesterday (6/9/2013). The right-hand, front bolt had corrosion similar to this picture on my November 2012 delivery, BRZ limited purchased at Sewell Subaru in Dallas.

The left side bolt had a light coating of red grease and no corrosion.

Anyone heard a possible explanation from Subaru or Scion? Could this be an issue for Texas or Southwest delivered Twins?

One of my front camber bolts had similar corrosion. I'd consider it a non-issue, but something to watch out for when doing suspension.

Wow! My engineer trained mind starts on a trail to figure the reason for this bolt and this location across platforms and delivery points. Why only this bolt? And why the passenger side only has the problem?
Anyone connected with factory reps?

I had these installed by a professional shop yesterday (great mod), just be aware that loosening the subframe will likely alter your rear alignment so I would suggest installing these along with other suspension mods and get an alignment shortly thereafter.

Thanks for this awesome guide. Just did mine today using this guide and it was a relatively painless job.

Also, if I ever wanted to regrease these bushings, what sort of grease would be suitable for the job?

Thanks for another great write-up.

Did these over the weekend and WOW car feels amazing now. No squat or delay when the car takes off. Feels incredible! I do get a very slight whine through the chassis now, but only noticeable with the radio off.
