I have this issue I bought it for majorly that part. After seeing all the work they did, and that I dont have a garage of my own the project is just to big for myself. It seems I'll have to pay a shop to do that.

I ordered the kit for my S13 coupe lastnight and I can't wait to get the parts.

I changed all the bushings on my S30 (Z) a few years back. With that and a combination of suspention goodies, it handles like an indy car.

Well worth doing especialy if you have ant swollen or broken bushings.

This bushing kit is cheap right? Like under $200 for everything? I really need this, my car has so much slop in everything cause of the nasty old bushings. Especially the tension rod bushings.

get the Energy kit, it's about 120 shipped on ebay. i'm pretty confident the rsr kit is the same kit in different packaging.

all urethane bushings is going to be pretty stiff, yeah. but... that's why my 240 isn't a DD ;)

It is stiff, but still not as stiff as going with adjustable suspension parts that have the hiem joints. Poly bushings are stiffer than stock crappy rubber, but it is worth it and a better bang for your buck than getting any other suspension part. In my opinion it should be the first thing you do before getting anything else.

I have spoken to people who said it took close to 13 hours... and they had no proper tools...

with a press, a torch, a BFH, i think it could be done in 3-4 hours.. respectivly.. and then an alignment would be a MUST
yep, BFH is key.

im going to be installing ES bushings on my car..sofar ive done the front and rear swaybars and endlinks these are probably going to be the easiest ones to do...i also did the tension rod bushings...what i did was goto a junkyard and purchase some and have the old bushings pressed out...and then i just lubed up the es bushings and squeezed them in by hand...next ive got steering rack front control arm bushings and all the bushings that go on the rear upright...for that im going to be using an air chisel the vibration from it should knock em loose easy:D
