Anyone recommend anything? I`m replacing bottom ball joints as a safety measure and I noticed the rubber bushes on the tie-bars are looking a little `well-worn` (GTR V-spec).

I assume you can get bushes for the std bar? Any uprated parts complete? (I`ve seen issues with stiffer bushes resulting in snapped tie-rods - not good!)

I have a spare set of nismo front tie bar bushes - part number 54476-RS580.

They fit BNR32 - not sure about 33's or 34's.

I have a feeling Nismo just sell the complete arms now rather than the bushes on their own.

I just took delivery of 2 Tein Pillowball tension rods, But the other options presented to me where Standard bushes, and for just a few quid more Nismo ones.

The Tien ones are adjustable in length, suppose it depends on what you want to do, I went for the best I could afford in the hope they will last well.

Mark.

P.S. Im running an R33, but from what I can tell they do them for Most models

By pillowball I take it you mean no bushing at all? Pretty severe for road use?

Sounds like Nismo ones might be an option? I also assume they are a right pain to fit.....
