Our VAC Front Control Arm Bushings offer the precision of a race
bushing, but with durability and low cost anyone can afford.
The greatly improved stiffness, even over urethane bushings,
helps eliminate deflection under load during hard cornering
maintaining proper alignment for much improved handling, feedback
and control when braking- even with the stickiest tires.
Delrin is a smooth but very hard 'thermoplastic' but isn't
considered "solid" as aluminum or steel; because of this and also
because these reuse your OE lollipops; they are legal in many
classes where 'solid' bushing materials and the Treehouse Eyeball
Arms are not allowed (please always check the rules for your
Delrin is also a self-lubricating material so it doesn't wear or
stick when properly installed, and these bushings have no moving
parts to fail or jam and so are maintenance free. Due to the range
of motion the control arms travel through, these bushings can be
used on a street car, but will incur some additional noise.
Measure with a caliper the diameter of your control arm to
determine the bushing size needed.
The OE tolerance on the control arm is different from casting to
casting as they are typically pressed into rubber bushings. If you
experience any binding / sqeeking from your bushings during
install, please use some emery paper to lightly sand the inner
diameter and test fit until they turn smoothly, then install. This
eliminates binding and keeps them quiet.
Happy so far
