Project FR-S: More Rear Suspension with Cusco and Whiteline


Howard presses out the stock rubber upper control arm mounts.
The stock rubber parts have gaps while the Whiteline parts are solid and have flanges to reduce fore and aft movement.  The Whiteline part has an eccentric steel insert to give adjustability.
The rubber subframe to chassis bushings on the right have huge gaps that allow as much as 1″ of movement.  The Whiteline urethane parts have a fraction of that.
The Whiteline rear diff bushings in place.
Howard installs the front nose bushings.
The rear Whiteline subframe to chassis bushings in place.



  1. Hi Mike
    Have you done any projects on the 06-11 Civic FG chassis ?
    Would like to know what’s best for a better (already good stock)
    road response for not too much outlay

    Thanks much.

    1. I did the Spoon FT2 which is like the FG. What is not a lot of outlay, that’s a very general impossible to answer question.

  2. What are your thoughts on the combination of the 22mm and 18mm swaybars? I noticed that whiteline is packaging the 22mm front with the 16mm rear. Do you have any insight as to why they may be doing this?
