I was curoius which type of bushings are best for this application. I have heard of drilling holes in the bushings on the rear end housing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We really like the mono-ball bushings from DCA Racing. They will sure free up the rear end and let the springs and shocks work.

Yeah I really liked those too, guess that is why they are illegal now. Now we are forced to run rubber type bushings. Thanks

I was looking into replacing all mine with Polyurethane (Enery Suspension). My partner insisted the stock (read 1986 stock) bushings were fine in the rear. I argued, but since he was driving, they stayed. For my 2nd year, they're getting changed. 20 year old mush rubber ***** for consistency.

I'm gonna have to really think about those DCA bushings. Are they hard to install? Anyone else reinforce the stock rear arms? I was thinking of just welding in a few pieces of 1" tube to give them some support, especially the lowers. We're not allowed aftermarket, but I don't think they'd DQ me for reinforcing the stock ones.

New bushings will make a world of difference in the handling of your car. Whether you get factory replacements or energy urethanes, it is well worth the money.

Thanks. Will these bushings allow the rearend to track side to side or will the rearend stay centered under the car?
