Title: What is "improved" strut rod bushing?
Post by: Patrick Marcum on December 05, 2008, 03:20:25 PM
Parts man said he would order both and let me pick out which one I wanted.  What is different (besides the price)?  Going on a 65 New Yorker.  Thanks- Pat

There is a hi-performance version as well as the standard bushing....this page shows both.

There are also different control arm bushings....the optional ones have more camber adjustment in them and my alignment guy says that is a must on our cars.

Well I found out- the older bushings could slip out of place like one of the original ones on my car did.  The improved style has a steel nipple that inserts into the rad support and the bushing cannot move.
