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 increases 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 experience any noticeable increase in harshness.
Set includes 2-Bushing sets to replace both bushings
INSTALLED INTO NEW FIGS Billet Machined brackets
Now Grey Anodized
Please allow 1 week in some cases as bracket stock fluctuates
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.
2001-2005 LS430 (must remove teardrop factory taper washer)

no shop press required since we include the brackets, just bolt-in.
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 nut that is threaded on to an extension of the arm.
You will need to remove both under-covers and the side bracket bolt that is attached to the #2 bushing bracket.
Remove the two bolts holding the bushing 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 bushings making sure the bevel on the bushing tube is oriented towards the front of the vehicle.
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, and the side rail bolts 50Nm/37ft-lbs. Apply final torque to the nut at the center of of the bushing 113Nm/ 83ft-lbs.
Verify clean cycling of the suspension by loading and unloading. If any other OE or rubber bushings where loosened or replaced, load the suspension and then final torque them to prevent their premature wear.
*Alignment is still required to benefit from tire wear reduction.
