          I'll know on the price point when I finish the first set. However looking at raw material costs and what I'm going to have in cutting, welding, drilling, tapping, coating, etc. It's looking to be around $330-$360 a set.

            Mike; from a maintenance perspective .... will it be possible to replace the subframe end bushes ? esp. the front one.

            ... say you choose a certain hardness of bush but then later decide to try another grade ..... will that be easy and or possible ?.. thanks ....G.

              I suppose I could go one step further and make my own molds for the bushings such that you could buy replacements. However there are no bushings off the shelf that will meet my needs. So with my current design path and to answer your question... is it possibly? - Yes... will it be easy? -No. It would be no different than filling roll resistors.

                          Rigidity. Plain and simple. The stiffer you make your suspension the less chance it has to flex and or deflect which causes loss of traction yada yada yada. Well worth it on any platform especially fwd where your drive axle also happens to steer your vehicle. Also has many other points of awesome which in this case were poly bushings, ball joint is serviceable, and possibly a drop in weight.

                              Your improvements also come in abundance with regards to launches and cornering. Eliminates wheel hop on launches because they're not flopping around like stamped crap does due to stresses being equally distributed throughout the structure also with cornering because they're not flopping around like stamped crap still does due to aforementioned and polyurethane bushings which don't have as much give as stock resulting in better traction. I was an alignment technician for many years and worked on alot of cars that did SCCA racing in St. Louis as far as my street creds go.
