Anyone tried these? I don't think I've seen these before.

"Designed as direct replacements, these high quality, polyurethane bushings replace the factory rubber units to help firm up the steering input and feel.

Whiteline KSR200 Impreza/2.5 RS front steering rack bushings - $20/pair"


And only $20...

So no one has any opinions/experience with these thingies? I'm thinking that they're kinda gimmicky. I personally haven't felt like my steering was lacking so far, but maybe I'm missing out on something. Has anyone replaced they're steering rack before?

I've been looking into them...that's how I found this thread. My buddie put some on his moms Legacy and really noticed a difference. I'm probably going to order some from subaruwrxparts.com soon to try them out.

I have them on my car. Really nice, greatly improves feedback on turn in. Basically I have full feedback throughout the whole turn. Before, it was mainly like half a second to a second where I couldn't tell how the car was handling as I was going into the corner. Overall a good investment. Installation was kind of annoying but if you stick with it it'll eventually go in. Also I noticed a little more feedback in the steerwheel for highway driving, nothing I don't mind.

I had some work done to my car due to an accident and they had to replace the Rack I ordered them and had them installed I feel that there is more feedback through the wheel which I think is a good thing. I did not install so I cannot speak to that.

sport compact car recommened them even on the STi. So I'm assuming its a generic trait in all subaru's.

ya install is a bitch and a half. Lots of cursing on my end. Make sure you loosen both ends before you start tugging on anything.

Buy the bushings, you'll get laid by every woman you see just because you have them! When power steering fluid gets on the bushings it releases a scent that makes women horny.

Honestly, how much of a PITA is the intall? I know that it's tight, but what else makes it difficult? I've had Whiteline bushings sitting in my garage for a month now (with a bunch of other pieces), but have not had the time to put them in.

You and Scubaru have me all skeered Jud :help: ...

basically getting under the car and just jiggling until they finally fit in. The passenger side is cake, the driver side is a bitch and a half.

Is it just the lack of room because of the placement of the lines, the square shape of the driver's side bushing or something more? I gotta admit, I'm not real warm and fuzzy about having to loosen the column as some have suggested. I sure hope that it doesn't come to that :( ...

its just really tight and just takes a while for it to finally slip on. Once it does, you'll be thanking jesus that it's over.

For a second, I was wondering if you were still talking about the same thing! :lol:
