    I have herd some negative comments about offset steering rack bushings. Do you see any added benefits when installed? I got a set for $10, so if I don't put them on i'm not realy out much $$. What do you guys think? :dunno:

    Offset bushings are supposed to help with bumpsteer correction, if the car has been lowered. They relocate the rack, and therefore, retain factory-like geometry. Since I've never had a personal experience with them, that's all I can really say. Seems to be a cheaper solution over getting a bump steer kit. Although it also looks like it would work on the cars with a very slight drop, which from the signature picture, your car is not.

    If you're looking to improve your geometry, get some Steeda X2 Balljoints.
