    complete suspension bushing upgrade or oem replacement kit?

    Anyone know if there is a complete bushing upgrade kit available for everything under the car? I know you can get bits and pieces here and there, but it would be nice if someone had a complete set. It's probably rarely necessary to replace everything at once, but I like everything to match.

    Go with the 3sx poly kit for sure, unless you value supreme comfort.

    I have the 3sx poly kit and comfort level is the same as stock, IMO. Also, good luck finding an oem kit. From my experience, no one sells them, and some oem bushings can only be purchased with the part they attach to. Hence why I went with the 3sx kit.

    I think I read on 3si also that some of the OEM bushings aren't even available...Not 100% sure though.

    400 is a lil steep, but if it includes every single piece, i guess it'd be worth it
    is it actually every single piece?

    hopefully soon i'll have a car thats quick, reliable and rides like new
    thats what i'm trying to build anyway, only 10% of the way there

    I believe so, from what Ive heard of people buying the kit. I would try and find someone who actually bought it, or call 3sx

    The 3sx kit includes all the suspension bushings. They also have a different kit for the Subframe bushings. I only got the suspension bushings as those were the ones worn out on my car.

    The 8 ones you definitely need are parts numbers :
    MB663754 (you need 2)
    MB663072 (you need 2)
    MB809002 (you need 4)

    Availability can be very suspect at times.

    Awesome thanks, thats a great start, not too expensive from mitsparts.com either
    The goal is to see if I can make my car feel like new, if not better
    I need to dig through the manuals and find a part list, but i'm way too deep in too many other projects at the moment
    If there isn't one already out there, a complete list of everything with part #s and prices would be nice

    Something like this, but maybe not the prices as that will probably be too much and varies from place to place and over time anyway
    $5.58ea 2x MB663754 BUSHING,RR SUSP CROSSME
    $3.53ea 2x MB663072 BUSHING,RR SUSP CROSSME
    $11.35ea 4x MB809002 BUSHING,DIFF RR MOUNTIN

    I also remember reading somewhere about some of the control arm bushings can be used from a sonata or something
    If something is unavailable, I bet there are other parts out there similar enough to be replacements

    Wow, looking at 3sx again it's actually 2 sets and totaling about $800
