As many of you may be aware there has been a "Cheap" option, that lets say brand "E" has done a video on notating that they are smaller than factory and change the pre-load on the arm.
Brand "U" lets call them has an install video saying that they have recreated the factory part with the same "type and amount of rubber being used"
Technically not true because as shown in the video by brand E the durometer is definitely not the same from the deflection noted.
With all the BS aside we have made a part like the factory bushing and a special tool to help install these. One of the problems with installation of this part is the end that brand E glosses over. When you get to the part where the tube holds that end from sliding down the shaft you have a "sharp edge" from the metal the rubber can catch on. If it catches you will scar the inside rubber. This will make a second attempt more difficult.
We have made the delrin "tools" to allow you to use a 1/2" stainless rod with some nuts and large washers to install. There is a taper to allow the rubber to clear the edge of the A arm without catching it.
I had Cary do up one for me and fully document this so that you will have some instruction as how to do this. We are currently compiling and putting this together now.
To be clear the delrin parts are the only "tools" we are providing. We figured that most of you have an Ace Hardware or Home Depot nearby and can acquire these for less than we can ship them for.
Yup, I'll need one set of these with the tool.
It would have been two but I already bought a set of "brand E" about 8 weeks ago. From the looks of it, this is a great value, and I could have saved a decent chunk of money. Oh well.
Perfect timing. I'm in.
Also will go along with other winter projects, including the door/seal rebuilds kits (with all options), and how are you coming on the targa/top seals?
Sadly, I also installed brand"E" last spring.
I’ve been waiting on these. Thank you.
I am in but you knew that.
I've also been waiting, so I'm in.
These also fit the 911 arms right?
Are rear trailing arm bushings in the works?
I'd be interested in one maybe two sets.
K i'm in
in for a set. thx
Id love to see a video to see how much of a PITA this is, but im in, with tools. two of my cars are on 45 year old rubber and the 3rd is on $500 worth of RSR parts so this seems like its worth a shot.
An early set of the bushings somehow landed in my mailbox, and the quality is first-rate. Compared to the poly bushings I was about to use, they are a no-brainer.
I still need to get my A-arms powder coated, but as soon as that is done, these are going on!
Are these available now on the 914rubber site?
i would like a set with the tool please.
And what about trailing arm bushings?????
I am still masking payments on the brand E I installed last year!
I need these and the strut-top pieces.
In for one set with tools. Thanks, Mark!
I'm in for 2 sets and the tool!
(now get to work making the rears )
