    Getting the arms out is easy compared to reinstalling them with the CT gusset kit! I did it myself and had a lift that helped a lot I could see where doing on the ground would suck even more.......

    I just installed the new S3 bushings......at 1100 miles all of my factory bushings looked perfect, all were tight, almost no wear, I had to pry all of them out and they were surprisingly clean

    Can't hurt, right ? Those S3 bushings are polyurethane, right ?

    I don't know.....they are very hard and slippery.....the oem were rubbery and nit as slippery

    The machining was crappy on some of the S3's.....I had to get a razor knife to cut lots of plastic off of around 10 of them, looks like they weren't finished all the way....someone wasn't paying attention !

    I did the S3 bushings, braces and shock tower at 22mi. All my S3 bushings were perfect.

    The Super Dave’s comes with the inner sleeve and the stainless wear plates for the sides. The first set I put in my OG mav wore so good it took over 500 miles before I could get them to take grease. I just installed them in my X3 when I installed my CT upper and lower a-arms. I can only hope the last as well as my OG mav bushings.

    I think the original bushing wear is all about the environment and driver. I grease mine every day I ride and at 1000 miles I could move the lower arms1/2” for and aft at the ball joint. I ride hard and hammer through the rough stuff. Sometimes I even cruise around.
