Just what the title says. I prefer to have the same manufacturer for the FCABs and RTABS....only
because it seems logical I considered going with UUC products for all of the above, as they
make great stuff. However, I am open to suggestions for everything.


Please PM or post your prices + shipping to 27403.

THX!

OEM Is the best for all your bushing needs. Just get the Ground control shims for the rear and that should eliminate the play that causes them to ripped. Sways just get the H&R which are the same as the turner with stock links. And as far as lines you can get the stop techs.

Sways - I would suggest Turner Motorsport b/c they never need to have the bushings greased or rebuilt (big plus) and they are priced right.

RTAB - Rogue or UCC, same thing

I don't think OEM bushings are best

I recommend Powerflex for RTABs, Ground Control for FCABs, ground control or eibach sways

You can find Powerflex RTABs almost anywhere, Ground Control can only probably be purchased from their website, eibach from various vendors with varying prices

Yeah, I'd say the PowerFlex RTAB will be your best bet or shims if you don't take your car to the track, etc. GC FCAB can make a little noise and will also cause some vibration that maybe unwanted. I am happy with my UUC bars and the Eibachs are very good.

How so? Oem no noise and is OEM. I dont understand why people changed things just to changed them. First of if your not at the track 15+ days a year why deal with the onoxious noise and the harshness of Ground control FCAB. As far as the RTAB i changed to oem and put the shims and have 15+ events and i daily drive and rip around IN NYC and i just checked them and they looked in real good shape.

As far as sways get yourself the turners because their maintance free. I had the ground control and i dont miss it. Its nice if you know how to tune the preload and mess around with the settings but other than that you will be fine with eibach or H&R. Ofcourse this is all my opinion based on having all these parts but you can do what you want.

Getting short old timer? Have the bushing gotten a little dry rotted from sitting for a year?

Go with UUC, you can get all from one source and good stuff like you already mentioned (plus a military discount)

Hey buddy Long time no hear...I was thinking the same thing about UUC.
I had their short shift kit for the e39 M5...loved it...they make GREAT products.
Plus, I like supporting businesses like theirs, and Turner for that matter. I haven't
decided on the sways, but I am going to go with UUC for the bushings
