Did you check your alignment settings after installing?

No, it supposedly does not alter alignment and I'm not driving 100 miles a month and the rims & tires are coming off when my new ones come at which point, I'll have the car aligned.

I agree. I've had these on for prob 3 yrs and there was an instant change/improvement in the way the car handles under acceleration. Much more planted and sure footed. For the record I'm Harrop'd and at 300+hp. Also fitted with MCA Red, subframe inserts, Verus LCA and P4 245/40/18's on 9.5" TE37's.

Just watch fitting them. Those subframe bolts can be buggers to realign and will cross thread very easily. ALWAYS install with fingers. If installed properly the bolts should almost tighten up by hand till the last couple of threads. Then you can uses a socket and bar. Ask me how I know

How about on the brakes? Does it not want to rotate as much on corner entry.

Are you serious? This is the suspension thread; they are obviously aftermarket bushes. Well, young, immature bushes.


Here is a picture of a rubber bush. I couldn't find a pic of a poly bush.
