    Has anyone on here fitted these?.
    Thinking i may give them a go, is it necessary to freeze them on can i just pound them in with my 10t press?

    Also, i see they are fittid to the front bushes, surely the rear bushes take most of the load... Is this actually beneficial?:confused:

    I keep meaning to order these, they are meant to really tighten the front end up.

    Isnt their a guide on the modshack website on how to fit these?

    Sorry..My original post must have came across a bit vague.
    If/when i fit them it will be in my workshop where i have no freezer, so is freezing necessary??

    I have heared these tighten up the front end, give better control, but how come the rear bush always wears quicker than the front - yet this kit is to replace the front bush?

    Argh i get ya. It may be due to the size of the rear bush's and the area that consist's of rubber, it may just wear/have more strain on it. The front bush's are alot smaller arnt they the strain on them may not affect them the same. TBH i not sure, it's never been properly disguised.

    To add, looking at that guide, if you put the defcon bushes in the freezer that should suffice.
