Whiteline rear toe arm bushing installed

I installed a set of Whiteline poly rear toe arm bushings to replace the stock rubber ones. Picture below shows the stock rubber on the left, and the Whiteline poly bushing on the right. Ran it at an AutoX yesterday, and the rear end feels more planted and predictable. Not as much power oversteer. I run SCCA AutoX, so both STU and ASP don't allow metal bearings in these arms, so I couldn't use the common aftermarket replacement arms.

ASAP, it does help with the side to side flex, but I also have the M3 subframe bushings, and those were a bigger improvement. I'd upgrade the subframe bushings first.

As far as pressing them in, I just bought a set of used arms off e-bay, and took those and the new bushings to a local BMW race shop, and they pressed the rubber bushings out, and the new ones in.
