Default rear trailing arm bushings

I'm considering the eccentric bushings instead of having a set of adjusting brackets welded in to accommodate adjustments.

In order to replace the trailing arm bushings (two per side), is it necessary to do anything more than unbolt the fasteners at the subframe for access? Anyone replaced the centered bushings with the eccentric style in order to attempt to reset the alignment specs, either the toe or camber settings?

I have not. However you may get the individuals that you would want to chime in over on s14.net or by searching R3v- I remember reading a thread on the eccentric rtab bushings on R3v.

Thank you for thoughts. I have direct emailed an S14 member but am not familiar with R3v?
