Got pics of the bushing mounts?
James, I know the oem mounts are really beefy. More so than hotchkis and many other's.
Anybody ever wonder why after market mounts look so much weaker than stock.
Does the oem know something more...

I think I might be more interested in oem size polyurethane bushings just so I could stick with the heavier duty oem mounts.

The stiffest settig might be OK on the street, but I would be careful if you take your car to the track on the stiffest setting--I would start medium and work up if you think you need it.

don't forget to recheck the nuts on either endlinks I didn't hear a "clunking" noise but check it for the hell of it. They were loose. I haven't touched the sway bar over a year aswell. Nothing big but things happen.

It's funny cause my wife after getting adjusted to the car after the mods, that when I returned the car back to stock when I traded it in, she hated the stock ride which really helped then explain why we all spend the money on modding cars

I think I need to crawl back under the car and tighten the nuts on the endlinks. The unusual warm weather here in Michigan has me rolling around with the windows down and I noticed a squeak plus a clunk from the rear, so I assume I need to tighten the sway bar again. I don't know how anything on a car stays tight with our crappy ass roads here! It's been on since last July and I can't imagine what stock would feel like again!

I just installed mine this weekend after having the bar lay on my living room floor for about a year (don't ask). Those droplink bolts were schtight! It was pretty easy install even without a real lift (used ramps). The only annoying part I thought was tightening the locating collars. Everything else was pretty easy and straightforward with jbarone's instruction photos. Don't worry about the color dude, the only time you'll ever see it is when your car is up on a lift. Sorry about the photo quality, taken with my iPhone while laying on my back under the car.

deciding between this and the corksport rsb... anyone have any comparisons? My friend at work recommends the CS, but I have always been a faithful JBR costumer. Also hte JBR lifetime warranty makes me tingly... any info would be great, thanks
