I've just bought the Ground Control setup to turn my '85 GS into an IT-7 car. While taking the steering apart to change the oilpan gasket, I noticed all of the bushings are completely shot.

Advanced Atuo parts carries the inboard and outboard tie rods but doesn't carry just the bushings. The tie rods are $30 inboard and $20 outboard.

Are there racing versions of the steering linkage? Are OEM's good enough? Will the Advanced Auto specials be as good as the OEM's?
