Well I've got the Turner delrin FCABs and the steering feel is unreal, so these things would be a great option but I did spit take at the price

Got these bad boys today. Hope to get them on in the next few weeks.

Are these aimed more towards street use or track? Wasn't exactly answered.
And just to compare how much better would these be over new oem rubber?

Well, considering that poly add significant NVH then these surely will. That said, I don't think any options other than these or OE are suitable for the FCAB location due to the 'non-square' installed design which puts a lot of static stress on solid bushings.

These are the real deal - I'm tempted to try a set just because, knowing full well that I ultimately won't be able to tolerate them long term.

Killer product either way!

I'm guessing they'll add more H than N or V. I'm curious, though. The monoball design does seem to make a ton more sense than the other options, including the GC street ones that I have but haven't yet tried out...

In short, if you're seeking front control arm bushings that offer precise, predictable handling, crisper braking feel, with a long service life free from noise - look no further. We have you covered.
The sales copy is interesting. As far as NVH, I will find out soon enough.

Performance should be light years better than stock. Monoball RTABs may be my favorite mod...huge difference with absolutely no tradeoff.

I'm thinking a more hard-edged feel to sharper hits like lane dots and potholes and, of course, an ultra responsive steering feel.

The only other 'similar' product I can recall was UUC's 36M version way back in the day. While these delivered in the performance arena they weren't reliable, fit poorly and made lots of noise. These weren't a spherical but rather a roller bearing encased in a thin rubber outer ring. Fabulous idea, poor execution.

UUC is pretty consistently garbage though, so no surprise there.


Turner on the other hand pretty consistently makes good stuff. I'm very tempted by these to go with my impending monoball RTABS.

Absolutely - these are going to be rock solid, no question.

That was the only UUC product I ever bought. Garbage.
