I better pull my delrins out then...I wasnt aware that my Z drives like a truck after I did the upgrade.

And yes Poly bushings dont last long in locations under constant stress/high force. They end up yielding/deforming in short time.

Glad you and your wife are enjoying your Christmas Present Glad I could help you get your Vette dialed in

This is an interesting thread....

Since I am going to be changing shocks, end links, and springs soon, I was looking into getting the control arm bushings also changed in the front.

Now, my car would be a DD, for long trips, AND also looking to carve hills, stable in the flats at speed...etc, etc...basically, a much more tuned suspension. I don't want a race car type harshness, but also wanna get rid of the floaty feeling and improve driver confidence. Keep it coming. I was considering Poly bushings for sway bars and control arm, but don't want to keep changing those out every few years either...

Still no pics of what the max drop looks like? I have seen quite a few threads and people speak highly of these but I am curious what type of drop these can do.
