Default Who's installed their ES master bushing kit?

Haven't seen much about this since the group buy wrapped up. So who's installed theirs? How'd it go, and what's your opinion on the results?

Still in the box, waiting for more parts to be able to do everything at one time. The way things are going so far, it looks like a month or more before I get to install the whole set-up.

I wish I were retired so I could have more time, but then I couldn't afford to do it, what a vicious circle.

I didn't get mine thru the GB you (so very well) conducted, but I did get a set w/o the sway and diff bushings. I also am picking up a set of super low mile control arms, and eventually on a get-to-it basis, I'll start putting the bushings in the new arms then switch them as a lot.

Me. About the results: didn't you see the negative feedback I left for you yet?

Seriously, I like the results. A little stiffer ride but nothing major.

I did pay through the nose to have them installed!

Rafa I told you, buy me ticket to the DR and hook me up with some hot boriquas, it will cost a lot less than your mechanic and it will get done properly

Chris, not installed yet, no time. I do have spare control arms, I will install and then swap as a lot, like Ben. I will also use this opportunity to paint/powder coat the new'er control arms tp prevent rusting, etc. Maybe even a write up

I got the back half done so far. Stiffened the ride up a lot. Have yet to tackle the front half since i'm looking for new ball joints to purchase. Once I get those i'll tackle it.

Installing the bushings were super easy with that large c-clamp tool recommended by FM and shown in a video by emilio.

If I hooked you up with some boricuas you and I both would be in for some *** kicking from your gf

Dominicans I can do. Someday you're going to convince me to pay for your ticket to visit! BTW, ask the gf to teach you to dance some "merengue and salsa"

If you want to impress the local chicks you have to know how to dance both! On a sidenote, I just saw an ESPN ad where Jose Reyes (Dominican shortstop of the NY Mets) teaches the anchors how to dance merengue. lol, that was funny
