I have also noticed that the inner diameter of the stock inner steel sleeves is 17mm,but the subframe bolts are 14mm diameter.

$220.00us,shipping is usually $50.00u.s to US.A
The 90A shore hardness(sorry not rockwell hardness) is hard as tap washer.
There is shore D hardness which is harder.70D probably as hard as golf ball and even harder suff like 80D which is hard as bone.

You wouldnt want a subframe bushing hard as hell you'd start to feel the rear end in the car and in the case of an impact with the rear wheel / diff. you might not like what happens after some nasty tears that is of the cars frame.

Anyone get the saying a part is only as strong as it's weakest joint ?

Correct.90a shore hardness is just right for bushings

Do you have any pics of the front subframe bushings?

Also, What is the price on the front bushings?

Can someone who has installed these give a quick run down on how they feel, I'm more so concerned with the noise.

It seems the BIC aluminium ones were pretty noisy.. well according to BIC himself it amplifies any existing drive train noises. ie noisy diff

Cheers
Sam :)

I will post photos of front subframe bushings.
The poly bushings would be as noisy as Bic spacers.
I go make softer grades of the subframe bushings if requested

i'm very happy with ronnie's product's and communication(awesome guy).the rears subframe bushing are easy to hammer out and install the new one's.i don't have any driving impression's yet,but i'm also doing alot of other suspension mod's at the same time.i don't think i could give an honest opinion on additional noise renosance.i have a pic of them un-installed and the frame with the old shit removed.

I'm still waiting for the package, I’ve got a trace code and it look like it’s picked up but then there is no status update at all. The worst thing is that Ronniek does'nt answer my mail or PM’s at all.

Ronniek please give me a update!

Hi Richard ,I did sent to you an email to your personal email address telling you that i have lodged an enquiry with nz post and that they are still investigating.Maybe you did not get it.
I got a letter from NZ post yesterday saying that the parcel had to be sent back because of insufficient address and it was returned back to nz.
I have paid return postage charges and waiting for parcel to be delivered back to me.
Can you please pm your address and phone no(so postal services can contact you if there are any problems) and i will resend parcel to you when I get it back.
I used address you gave me.
tHANKS,
Ronnie

Juat to let everyone know that the New Zealnd dollar has dropped against the u.s dollar so the front and rear subframe bushings are cheaper.
Thanks,
Ronnie

Does somebody who have installed the full kit of ronniek bushing can give me a feedback on the quality of the ride after??
Very hard?, stiff?, like stock?
It's for a daily drive so I just want to know if the confort is here or not...
