Does the kit include a new bushing for the rear crossmember? (The bushing below the insulator for the thunk-in-the-trunk tsb)

Hey malum, Stock Bushings are made of rubber or something like rubber, so stock suspention is "squshy".

This set of bushings is made of Nylon (or something synthetic like Nylon). Material like Nylon doesn't wear out as fast and isn't "squshy". The whole suspension will be tighter/stiffer

That's the best description I can give, If anyone here needs to correct it feel free...

That's correct. along with "tighter/stiffer " include Rougher. And now that most of the play is out of the suspension system, cars that are pushed hard, break parts. Not trying to sound negative, it's just the trade off when tightening everything up

Ya, stiffer is also a description I should have used.

I guess I should ask: How much stiffer? Anyone installed a Bushing Set?

After running "Poly Urathane in my '67 Chevelle for 6 months, I took them out and went back to rubber until I discovered Del-A-Lum (Global West). This is on a DD.
