Spherical bushings

Has anyone used spherical bushings on their car and if so how are they? Are they worth the price?

I thought they only made them for the rear end side of the upper arms?

Heck I don't know if they make different ones or not but I am talking about the spherical bushings that go in the ears of the rear end for the upper arms to attach to

Re: Spherical bushings

I know maximum motorsports has them in their LCA's and they help keep binding down allowing the LCA to twist a bit more in the mount. Same for the other areas im sure

Re: Spherical bushings

I have not installed mine yet, but the research I did on them says that they allow better suspension movement and decreased suspension reaction time without binding up like the rubber or urethane are prone to doing.

The downside is that they will transmit more road/suspension noise into the car and will require more maintenance/inspection to keep the road grit out of them.
