dudes;

I want to install these but the angle is so small I wonder if they worth it. I also don't know which way or angle these go in. They have a thick and a thin side and dial marks on each side. I also have graphite impregnated black poly bushings but not sure if they are worth it (not eccentric), don't want to have too stiff a ride. TIA.

p.s. I will be using new OE style Bodge/Sachs oil shocks and OE springs with cut coils (cut 1 and a half coil on each side). This is not a tii.

My understanding of the factory eccentric rubber trailing arm bushings is that they are a SEVERE pain in the ASS. You must install them, THEN measure/align car...THEN remove / rotate them to correct the alignment. You can imagine how difficult this is for the average do-it-yourselfer!

That's what I fear. Thx paul.

and plan on doing it a lot because they dont stay in spec. Youll know when to redo them as soon as you hear the cords of your tires slapping your inner wheel wells
