Rebel Racing RSR bushings

Has anyone tried the new RebelRacing RSR replacement bushings for front and rear arms? How was the install? Happy with them? Thanks in advance.

Yes.

Very happy with them. My mechanic reported no issues during installation.

From the look of that last picture, they installed the bushing upside down? Just reading the label...

If the car has ever been hit, in an accident or contacted a curb the tub can be out of alignment, and the RSR bushings are made to to flip over like in Flieger's picture to compensate for such situations.

Actually, if you use the spherical washers they go in upside down. This is needed for clearance because the spherical washers are thicker. If you do not use the spherical washers then the sticker goes up. This is explained in the instructions.

You really should use the spherical washers to get your full performance bang for the buck.

The front housing looks symmetrical but that flange is slightly offset, thus the sticker.

I have them on my 914-6 track car. Installation was pretty easy and they've worked well thus far.

Old thread, but VERY good info.

I wondered why the spherical washers didn't fit until I read this thread. The detail about which way the bushing goes is not in the installation instructions as of today.

Excellent product, easy to install and well worth it!
