timing bushings after lowering

I was just wondering if you needed to time aftermarket bushings as well as the stock ones?

If you have aftermarket bushings in any of the following locations, yes.

FRONT:

Inner radius rod bushings

REAR:
Inner and outer toe rod bushings
Inner and outer trailing arm bushings
Inner control arm bushings
Lower shock mount bushings

With aftermarket replacement bushings it's not necessary to time them as the ferule rotates freely within the bushings. You have to do it with OEM bushings because they do not rotate with suspension movement and once lowered, the bushing will bind and fight the new position until the bolts holding them in place are loosened and allow the rotation to the new position.

Feel free to call, PM or email me with questions.

Best regards,

Tyler
