    i am building a 4link for the front and was wondering what the main disadvantage is to bushings they seem alot cheaper and easier to replace than heims. i was looking at the 2x9/16" greasable bushings.

    thanks jared

    Bushings dont have the same Range Of Motion as Heims do. Hindsight though, if you dont have enough misalingment in the mount you will not use all the ROM.
