    If you replace any type bushing remember to tighten all bolts AFTER the car is back on its wheels and the suspention has been cycled a few times, otherwise the bushings are put in a bind and will fail prematurely. Tighten only when the weight of the vehicle is on its wheels. I use the drive on ramps. It may be not as easy to do, but it is the right way. The shop where I work doesnt do it like this, & I just cringe and walk away. They dont care about how long it will last, only how quickly & easily they can get it done.

      What's happening to the quality of these new rubber bushes?

      I have rubber bushes in both my cars, one which is a daily driver that does a LOT of miles. I have also sold hundreds of these bushes and never had a complaint. If the bushes are fresh stock, I don't think you can go wrong. I have some N.O.S. bushes here which will probably get thown out!

        I have Delrins on a 66 Daytona daily driver and like them. I prefer the firmer handling to mushy feel of originals. Also, oem replacements are now about the same money. So it's not a hard decesion plus being able to grease them every once in a while as opposed to replaceing them every once in a while.
