Hey Steve, have you installed the redesigned Whiteline rear subframe bushings yet? Curious to hear how you feel they compare to the original design. I am debating between them and the street AKG right now. I have the Defiv lockdown kit and mFactory LSD currently.

Looks like you installed the left guide arm on the right?

Could just be the picture but the guide arm is meant to have the curve facing down if I'm correct?

RSFB still look like the day I put them in. I actually had to lower the rear part of the subframe to get my rear differential bushing changed and took one of the RSFBs out while I was in there to examine it...looked great.

Here's a couple pics.

I noticed the Strongflex ones do not come with the metal washer that goes between the car and the bush.

They are also 1 piece instead of 2.

Do the Polyurethane bushings require additional maintenance over time? As in you would need to regrease them every couple of years otherwise they start making noise?

How does one determine which way is 'UP' for the PU RSF bushings?
