Whiteline also provided us with an assortment of their high-quality polyurethane bushings so we could get rid of the compliance caused by squishy rubber, adjust the rear camber and improve the geometry of the front suspension.
This cool bushing is for the front of the front lower control arm. It has a solid middle to resist excessive moment under cornering and braking but has cutouts allowing the control arm to pivot and articulate without binding like some solid bushings will.
The coolest feature is the metal insert that is offset to the inside. This will cant the lower control arm forward increasing positive caster by 0.5 degrees. This helps straight line stability, gives the numb Honda electro-hydraulic steering some more much-needed feel and makes the outer tire have more negative camber under cornering helping to reduce understeer.
The front urethane bushing has a molded-in insert of slippery plastic, making the bushing much less likely to squeak. Squeaking bushings is an issue that all urethane bushings fight and Whiteline has done a great job of reducing this. The insert also reduces static friction which improves the ride.
The upper rear suspension link will use this Whiteline bushing with an eccentric inner sleeve. This will allow the camber to be adjusted.
These bushings will replace the soft rubber inner link bushings that are located in the rear knuckle.
