Curious if anyone is using these on their car and how they might like them?  Thanks!

I used them on my truck before and they worked good, just have to make sure they are well lubricated or they will squeak big time.

Great for everything but the strut bars on the lower a arms up front. They have been known to snap the bar between the bushings.
Modest beginnings start with the single blow of a horn man..    Now when you get through with this thing every dickhead in the world is gonna wanna own it.   Do you know anything at all about the internal combustion engine?

For my street Pinto and my race Pinto I am using a full poly bushing in the front (nearest one to the lower arm) and a STOCK rubber one on the back side. This way you get all the benefit of the poly under compression yet the softness of the rubber so less binding (and resistance) for the up and down movement of the lower control arm.
