Front #2 IS300 bushings back in stock

Hello all, after a long wait we have restocked on front #2 caster arm bushings. These are a common wear item and most vehicles will need them even if in stock form. This is also the solution for inner tire wear caused by deflection of this bushing during hard braking. A vast improvement over the factory 1-piece design these 3-P bushings allow a free pivot while also stabilizing alignment. This means they add performance and control without adding any NVH.

What is the part number you found? We are just finishing up tooling on them.
I still do not see a listing for them on their DB.

I might have been mistaken but this is what I was looking at;



I wanted to put all the bushings on together so I'm just waiting on these. I wanted to order steering rack bushings from you too but they are on back order?

I think I'll be placing an order for 1 & 2. especially with the 2's on sale at the moment

for those wanting the rack bushings, just go with the figs aluminum ones....very solid, more responsive feel over worn out OEM's and no noticeable NVH install is maybe a 4/10 doing the long bolt method...it's a tiresome PITA but so worth it LOL

sort of off topic, but any plans for diff bushings either solid aluminum/delrin or poly from superpro Mike?

'01 ASP 17x8 ssr comps 225/45 all around, LS400 bbk, FX-R 3.0 projector retrofit in JDM headlights, Modellista front, c-speed sides/rear, Rigid Bars, Hotchkis sways(stiff), Konis & eibach prokit, PLP intake tube & K&N filter, JIC Ti axleback w/ custom midpipe...more to come ;)

Mike,

I see you have these on pre-order with an expected date of 3/15, I want to do some front suspension work the first week of April.

If I place an order now would I be good for that above timeframe to receive the bushings? Oops, looks like I don't have the option to order on your site for that item right now.


Thanks.
