Gauging interest for FC SuperPro bushings



Just wanted to see if theres any interest in some high quality SuperPro front control arm bushings for FC's. A few FC owners have asked if I can get nicer, better made polyurethane bushings and am now trying to see if you guys would like to get a small group buy going. SuperPro bushings have grooves on the outside and are knurled on the inside which helps to keep the bushing lubricated for a longer, maintenance free life. Another cool feature about these bushings is the option to get the front lower control arm rear bushing offset for an increase in caster. If you dont want more caster, theyre available as standard caster bushings.

Pricing below is for the front control arm bushings (small bushing and big bushing):
- Front control arm front bushing and standard rear bushing $135 shipped
- Front control arm front bushing and more caster rear bushing $135 shipped

Prices above include shipping to the United States. Please contact me for a shipping quote if you're outside of the United States. I'll need to get at least 5 orders in order for it to be cost effective to import these bushings from Australia. ETA is about a week for the bushings to arrive at my door, from the day I place the order with SuperPro, if they're in stock. If they're not in stock, SuperPro will manufacture them for me which will take about 2-3 weeks for them to arrive at my door.

Thanks,
Juan

You guys can send a $100 deposit or pay the full amount to [email protected]. Please include your forum screen name and what it is you're paying for in the comments section of your payment. I'd love to get 5 orders of these so please spread the word (I also have this posted on another forum for more exposure). If we can't get enough orders, I'll add whatever orders I do have with my next shipment from SuperPro (sometime this month). One other thing I forgot to add, 8.75% sales tax will be applied to all orders within California.

QUICK UPDATE: I placed my order with SuperPro last night and am waiting to get a good ETA on these bushings. Hopefully I'll have that info tomorrow.

Normally, if bushings are in stock, it takes about a week for my order to arrive at my door. If bushings are not in stock, they manufacture them for me and I get my order within 2-3 weeks.

UPDATE: My order will ship tomorrow from SuperPro and hopefully I can start shipping everyone's bushings by the end of next week! Thanks for everyone's patience

If any of you missed the first round for bushings, let me know as I'd like to place another order with SuperPro as soon as I ship everyone's bushings from the first batch.

Non-caster SuperPro bushings are available but I dont have any in stock at the moment. I can get you some if you'd like to order them. If you're asking about OEM Mazda bushings, I carry those as well.

SuperPro bushings are in stock but I'm currently out of Energy Suspension bushings. I have a shipment of Energy Suspension bushings coming in. Sent you a PM.

I only carry OEM Mazda power steering rack bushings. Manual rack bushings are discontinued. None of the aftermarket companies want to make steering rack bushings for FC (manual or power steering) due to extremely low interest/sales. New OEM bushings are available on my website www.j-auto.net.
