Default Lower Control Arm Bushings - Treehouse Racing Eyeball Bushings

http://www.treehouseracing.com/



Anyone have any experience with these? How are they on the street? Too harsh?

What does everyone suggest for LCABs? OEM? Ground Control? I am willing to live with a little bit of harshness on the street if they help firm everything up on the track...

Thanks in advance

You might want to call them and see if they actually have them in stock. I waited for those for 6 months before finally giving up.

OEM.


I wanted the treehouse ones because they are smaller than stock and my AA headers were banging on the stock FCAB. After waiting and waiting and waiting, I finally gave up and took a ball peen hammer to the header and replaced the FCAB with OEM.

haha nice...

I'm thinking either Powerflex or OEM at this point...no point spending 3x the amount over stock for little gain...

I went with powerflex and I love it. You can feel the road better and the response of the steering is better.

jeff did you ever try the engine mounts yet?

No, I never got around to it. It's not something I want to do myself and my indy shop keeps making excuses not to do it. Banging on the header with a hammer has done the trick for the most part. I wish I never would have bought those P.O.S. AA headers


Haven't seen you on Forza lately, did you get sucked in by GTA too?

Nice, I've had them on my car for a bit now. I can't believe how long the wait was. Mine came in next day.

Great product overall, turn in feels very sharp, and it helped me increase clearance between the eyeball and the headers. Also, installation is much easier than OEM.

I did just go through a little ordeal that made me upset with Treehouse though.

I purchased the bushings from Bimmerworld, and after I hit a chunk of ice, one the the bushings got loose. I called up Treehouse Racing for a replacement since they are lifetime warranty, so they told me they can't cover it because I didn't buy them from them directly.
I paid for replacements and after I installed them on the car, Treehouse say they can cover it under warranty, but too bad I already bought a set...
Kind of a dick move...
