In the high demand conditions of drift, drag and road racing, the rear trac(tion) linkage takes the majority of the locating load of the rear suspension. As power is applied, the rear tire climbs against the tension of this linkage and with it causes deflection while grip is applied. The stock rubber bushing is punished in this harsh environment and we have witnessed first-hand the impact of these forces on the factory bushings, which tear, twist, and bias themselves into destruction and unpredictable alignment.
We are here with a solution, a high precision solid spherical bearing and spacer option to deliver pure traction, unparalleled control and fantastic feedback for all driving conditions.
Location" Rear Knuckle at the forward location where the trac link mounts.
Set includes 2- toleranced Precision 3-P Bearings clips and stainless High-misalignment spacers to replace BOTH sides.
A bearing service tool (large C clamp) is suggested since the bearing will need ot be centered upon press fit.
Optional M14 upgrade to bump up the trac link mount from and m12 bolt. Includes new bolt hardware. Only designed to work with FIGS Upgraded M14 clevis mount.

Remove old bearing via any means possible. A heavy bearing service tool is suggested. pushing out the center tube and slitting the outer cup works best.
Press in bearing and stop when the reveal on both sides of the bearing is the same (centered in the kncukle)
*NOTE only press on the outer cup section, never the bearing center. For easier installation freeze the bearing and heat the knuckle slighlty with a heatgun or torch.
Install stainless steel misalignment spacers
Inspect to make sure there is no binding in the bearing motion. If low speed stiction is present, lubricate the bearing with a DRY FILM teflon spray.
