Please review these soon haha. I'm about to replace FCABs in about a week and wondering if I should get these instead.

My car is up in the air, half way through the install right now.

Driver side went on super easily/quickly. Then I had to leave

I don't want to post any thoughts on them till I've had a chance to drive the car in a variety of circumstance...

I believe the FCAB just rotates within the housing, correct?

Either way, IIRC...wasn't Dinan's a bearing? A monoball is something new from what I've seen. Interesting.

I wonder how the heat from the headers will affect the right side?

I have wondered about that. I always thought the "ideal" control arm bushing would allow unrestricted rotation (control arm moving up/down) with zero deflection (control arm moving forwards/backwards or side to side)

A monoball is a bearing. Monoball is just another name for a spherical bearing.

All monoballs are bearings but not all bearings all monoballs. A bearing only allows rotation in a single plane while a monoball (spherical) allows rotation in all planes.

Obvious, but worth clarifying in the context of available options.

Dinan makes fcabs??
