Well, to be fair, there are so many things that work fine in the rear.

It was considered. But the performance benefit over Delrin is so minor it didn't make sense

I would say performance detriment. Aluminum is sticky and it galls. Besides you are the only person who has ever asked for it leafy.

PM me and ill make you a thuper special leafy autocrossset if you really want em.

On my front ones the bronze bushings are pressed into the aluminum so no galling concerns. Bronze rides on steel sleeve for the pivot.

so i see this is an old thread but im new to the forum. question i have is what setup do you think would yield best results for a miata running stock arms f/r, 245 hoosier 15" slick (true race slick) in a road racing only application needing 3.6-3.8 camber up front and 3.2-3.4 camber in the rear? full spherical, full delrin, delrin/poly, or what mix of those? cost is never an option - best performance is.

The answer to that question is in the first posts...

i have read this whole thing 2 or 3x. i guess my question is will the poly rear bushings stand up to the g loads we generate or should just go full spherical. Im not a suspension guru (trying to learn) so just trying to get the best parts for my application.

Any of the previously mentioned options will stand up, some just better than others. You will wear the braking(rear) thrust face on the poly bushings over time, but that's really about it. See pics of Arca_ex poly bushings after just 2-3 seasons on the first page or 2. The same will happen to delrin or sphericals to different degrees. I can put together any combo you want, but I'm not doing any sphericals other than the RUCA-O at this time.

email us @ [email protected] if youd like to discuss a kit for you.
