The rear of of our beloved Mk1 cars isn't exactly sophisticated. Lock it down and make it work by removing bushings wiggle and squish. After honing skills as a track driver or autocrosser, you expect predictable handling performance, but you will NOT get it from the stock setup.
Polyurethane is always the first step forward. You did that and the improvement was great. But, now it's time to step up your game and chase down the podium-finishing elites. Here's your "unfair advantage"!
Ultimately, only a set of real deal race bearings will do the job because it takes their precision to maintain and communicate handling balance. -particularly while trailbraking towards corner apex and at mid-corner before engine torque is applied. Even hard plastic bushings deflect under load and allow suspension geometry to distort. -not so with these rigid but Teflon-smooth/non-binding parts.
Ride quality is improved over stock and poly bushings except on choppy surfaces where harshness increases. Noise and vibration are not changed substantially. Put these to work with our Race Control Arm Bearing kits for an ultimate setup.
Note1: Fits all A1 chassis except Pickup Truck/Caddy. Lead time: 2 weeks.
Note2: Not ideal for rally cars (due to water, grit, and other bearing-fouling contamination).
Note3: Parts are treated for corrosion resistance to withstand daily driving in conditions that "are not very salty".
Note4: Bearings are easily replaced as part of long-term maintenance.
Be sure to include your VIN and MODEL YEAR in the order notes.
