This is an upgraded version of our standard bushing and features a stiffer 90 durometer proprietary polyurethane material pre-installed into the factory aluminum bracket. With so much demand for these bushings we are making it that much easier to upgrade. Watch the video to see how they perform under pressure. These bushings replace the staked factory rubber bushings with Superpro Polyurethane Bushings that are built to last and properly engineering to increase performance. The high-end polyurethane design eliminates the parasitic spring rate caused by staked bushings and increase service life. These bushings also provide more positive front arm location during spirited driving while also will reducing inner tire wear* due to toe deflection under braking. Do not be alarmed by the durometer of these bushings, you will not expereince any noticable increase in harshness.
Set includes 2-Bushing sets to replace both bushings INSTALLED INTO NEW FIGS Billet Machined brackets
Please allow 1 week in some cases as bracket stock fluxuates
With hundreds of these bushings installed and in service we are confident this is the best solution for dynamic toe and vehicle stability, not to mention inner tread life.

Video of it in action
The bushing sits at the back of the front LCA which is held on by two bolts into the chassis and one bolt through that is an extension of the arm.
You will need to remove both undercovers and the side bracket bolt that is attached to the #2 bushing bracket.
Remove the two bolts holding the bearing bracket (one with nut) and 2 side rail bracket
Remove the rear nut that holds the bracket to the LCA.
Remove rear bushing bracket, this may require deflection of the front arm bushing or unbolting the front location to free preload If too difficult you will need to remove the entire arm, sway bar and shock absorber. Contact FIGS is this is the case.
Install new bushing on bracket with correct forward vehicle indication for the right side.
Reinstall rear nut to hold bushing in place but not to final torque.
Reinstall 2 bolts plus nut and 2 bolts of side bracket. Long bolt through side rail bracket Torque to 204Nm/ 150ft-lbs, short bolt with nut 86Nm/63ft-lbs side rail bolts 50Nm/37ft-lbs
verify clean cycling with suspension by loading and unloading. While suspension is loaded, apply final torque to through post nut. Torque to 113Nm/ 83ft-lbs
Limited Refurb brackets on hand so if the option does not show they are not available.
*Alignment is still required to benefit from tire wear reduction.
