are the poly ones going to be molded, or machined? I haven't come around to it. but I may think about making delrin ones for my car. I need to look at it and measure it out. I don't think I will be trying to sell fc parts this time around though, I doubt it will be worth the effort. I'll let you kjnow LargeOrange in case you want a set. I'm in the middle of other things for my car at the moment, so I wont have time to start a new project until a while

Been looking for one of these as well for my brother's build.

Are the brackets (FB01-32-133) available still?

i measured the manual rack at 32mm. searched ebay and there are a few options for 32mm sway bar bushing that are the same, dodge ram and mid 90's camaro's .
may need to take a bit of the bottom off the bushing but i think these should work fine, and like clokker said you have one to practice on.

here are some links iam going to order a set today i will let you know how it turns out

bushings came in only took two days ordered straight from energy suspension.

fits great just have to slightly elongate the holes for the bracket 1/8'' on each side at most.

All done with the install. Had to slot one side of the mount 1/2" and i welded a washer on to be safe. But overall very easy and fits nice and tight.

I just used a power steering bushing and got a friend to make a billet adapter to increase the diameter of the non power rack to match the power steering rack. Pretty simple design but it works perfect and can still order bushings from mazda.

Is the height and alignment on it good? That look pretty good. My only question is what about the bottom where it isn't flat.

Thanks... I'm going to try this. Did you use the power steering mount bracket as well?

Sorry left that part out i added a small peice of metal under the bushing to space it up. Fit snug and the allignment was perfect.

yep, mounting bracket and bushing is off my power steering setup, What it essentially does is increase the diameter of the non power steering rack to be the same diameter as the power steering rack.

Hey guys,
New to the forums so sorry if the ateached pic comes out huge. I swapped my FC to manual steering and had the same problem finding poly bushings or even factory rubber ones for spares. Fortunately I had a good rubber version and sent it off to Ricochet Polyurethane Technologies for them to model a new Poly version with.
I'm not sure exactly when they'll be offering it, seeing as how the prototype was just delivered and installed today but now we have an actual option! They fit great, ship fast and are pretty cheap.

sorry in advance for bringing up an old thread.Passenger side manual rack bushing

That's awesome. I had contacted them about the same but couldn't get movement. Let us know if they give you any kind of ordering info.

You'll need to contact them([email protected]) for the passenger side one, but they do make both sides.

I believe I have a spare prototype left over (they sent 2 when we were doing test fits). PM me your info and I'll send my spare to you for the price of shipping.
