    I have to say, the FTBR bushing kit is a must for any and every cobra. I've had nothing but great experiences with the product and staff. I ran into a few problems with the installation (removing poly bushings), but bruce helped me out a lot through the process and is all around a great guy. On to the success. Wheel hop was once a huge problem, especially with street tires at the track. With the bushings in, absolutely none. The car hooked great at a 3200 rpm launch and pulled hard from there. I expected a little hop with the sumis, but if anything, I'd just spin a bit. The thoughts of my half-shafts popping are no longer existent. Props to Bruce, Steve, and FTBR for this amazing kit. :beer:

    Just installed mine earlier this year. Completely tranformed everything about the car. No hop, rides better, more responsive.

    yup. Best price for delrin bushings plus the grease fittings. And I don't even have them...I essentially have the red-pill..

    I considered a sra, but I love the look of the exhaust and the improved handling of the IRS. Glad I kept it

    For those that are doing Bruce's kit for handling don't forget Global West front Delrin. They are second to Bruce's kit for the best mod done for handling. Immediate turn in and no washiness in loaded turns.

    Not at all. You can't tell the difference from stock until you turn the wheel. Not an ounce of added harshness over bumps - but I haven't crossed a railroad crossing yet!

    Also Bruce put a cool little sticker in there with the kit its not much but no one throws in stickers with their products anymore. That was really cool great company.
