I was skeptical on quality so I researched the product. They are German engineered, they know their sh1t. They are the same as OEM on the durometer scale (spring rate). They feel like new OEMs now. Also have a year warranty. Here's a picture of them for my 2010. Might wanna take a look at them for you year model.
I considered this but went another direction due to the cost of Whiteline et al. So these inexpensive bushings are working, that's great. Did you replace the ball joints as well? If so, with what? Curious b/c my OEM LCAs are in the basement.

Yes, they're working as OEM bushings should. I wouldn't have bought them but the information they provided and I researched compared to OEM was exactly what I needed. My ball joints were in perfect shape so no, not yet.

Thank you, Bob
I don't know, doing that stuff is such a pain. If you set up the shipping so I just have to bring the coils into the shipping place that might be an option. I'm in 72701 on the edge of the beautiful Ozarks national forest 😍

Agreed. I'm definitely happy with the way the vehicle is handling. I think I'll leave things as is. I didn't mention the rear shocks were replaced about 15k ago with KYBs that give it a slight lift. The front struts also were trashed with the rest of my front end.
In retrospect I believe what happened when I brought in for an alignment after the last struts rather than tell me the my cam adjuster were frozen they just over loaded they bushings and everything all of a sudden let loose...
Not going back there.
