Needle Bearing Kit to replace Poly bushings (Pre-'89)
 
I know, it says for Used parts, but hey, I'll take the set off my car if you really want used :)

Needle Bearing Kit to replace Poly bushings
(new)


Recommended for race applications but can be used on the street if proper maintance is performed once a year (lubed and inspected)


Basic description of kit:

Inner Race installed on shaft of A-Arm
(Hardened and Centerless ground from Bearing Grade material)

Needle Bearings for Main Shaft,

Thrust Washers and Thrust Bearing

Advantage: No squeeks like the Poly bushings, less friction than Poly, let your shocks and springs (coil or torsion) work correctly instead of fighting the stiction of the Poly (smoother ride)
Bearing inserts can be replaced years from now if need be at a minimal cost (less than brass or poly bushings)


Disadvantage: More road noise will be transmitted into the vehicle. Need to be inspected once a year.
