Should I?

Anyone got long term comments on these?

I know the subframe bushes are a must but anyone used the rest for an extended period?

I've been looking at Powerflex but anyone used other makes?

Some say poly rear leading trailing. I instead inserted a 1.25" I'd collar in all four rear subframe bushing areas($10 for everything). The extra metal is a little over 1/2" thick and compresses the stock rubber while keeping NVH same as stock. This mod helped quicken turn-in set as the rear of this car is very soft.

Unbolt one of the four subframe bolts at a time, insert collar and tighten back up. Spent more time jack standing the rear.

I replaced my front bushes with PowerFlex

RPITA. I bought 2 new OEM bushes and inserted them while I worked at getting the worn out inserts out. My almost news ones are for sale, so at least you can drive while you sort them out.

I forgot to use the grease so mine squeak going over **** BUT man that improved handling a lot.

Need to do the rears but also need shocks and picked up ARC stabilizers so will do all at once when funds available
