Front tension arm bushing upgrade

Hi,

Wondering if anyone is using them or which type is best for road/hard track use( think GT3RS)

Cheers

Two post have disappeared

After instating do you find the steering is more responsive and direct?

I have the bimmerworld spherical bearings and am happy with them. They're marginally better than stock (mostly noticeable on the track with r-comps). I like them because they don't add any additional nvh.

This is a component that I wouldn't bother upgrading until your stock bushings are worn out.

I too have the spherical bearings from BW. I like them, definitely better around the track with sticky tires and a BBK.

I do not really notice any difference on the street NVH wise, with street tires.

I have the fall line conversion, but it's not installed yet. Quality pieces though.

I have the Rogue Engineering Street (Black), they give you great feedback through the steering and eliminates any steering freeplay. My mechanic hates it when I get a wheel alignment because it's a tad more difficult to adjust to have the steering wheel to be fully centered when the car is going straight.

just did it last weekend. i love it. steering is a bit more communicative and you feel more of the road through the steering wheel. this also got rid of a shimmy in the steering i had. adds a great feel with zero downsides. no extra noise, either.

Monoball is great if you can tolerate the NVH. RE street bushing is an excellent upgrade over OEM with additional feedback and response, but without the much added NVH.

i didn't notice any NVH with my monoballs. i got more road feel through the steering wheel and more precise steering. i guess some might call that road feel NVH, but it wasn't to me. i did not note any negatives with monoballs. i have the fall line kit.

Some like them and some don't. It's very subjective that is for sure. I had one customer installed and removed all in the same day after a short road test.

If anyone is looking for a set of these already installed, i am selling my car so I will trade the full control arms for 150+stock. If not, they will probably be just going with the car.
