they are - I called way back when I was looking for race car bushings and asked if they'd do me a set in delrin. The response: "Why in the hell would anybody want bushings made of delrin? That's just stupid." I hung up.

If you can find a vendor with an existing Energy relationship, maybe they can get that web price with a dependable delivery. That price is really already at "group level" IMO.

I have been waiting soooo long for ES to finally come out with a kit for the miata.

This kit should be even cheaper for the folks that only need the front & rear control arm bushings.

If someone can get a group buy going,I am definately in.

The ES account rep didn't return my phone call yesterday (the info I got was from customer service). I'm going to try them one more time on Monday.

All good Rob. Like I said, ES isn't exactly fun to work with anyway.

I just ordered a set of black diff bushings from this site, so let's see how it goes. with 42k on the 91 they are going on figured the CA bushings could wait.

I give up. ES is absolutely the most horrid company I've ever tried to deal with. They don't know their *** from their elbow, and the guy you need to speak with is always at lunch (no matter who you need and no matter the reason you need him). I got more warnings to NOT purchase from the site Rob linked--but I also don't have any viable alternatives for you guys either.
