Door Bushings

Production for 2019 is now done in batches of five

Some notes from the previous batches.
I eventually found the prefect size but some needed to sand or had double up on the double sided tape shim to get the desired fit as per the instructions. The majority were able to install without any correction.
Out of many that were sold since I have been selling only one person needed an exchange of one bushing which I found remarkable. Everyone else was able to get these to work with the prescribed methods.
The original bushings on my car have been going strong. I imagine that they will eventually compress over many years and the solution is very simple with adding another shim. As of 2019 I have found the right size that is working for the majority without any sanding. If you want them tighter you can add a shim.

Here are some ground rules.
1.You need to watch the video installation tutorial instructions. I strongly believe the success of the bushings came from the video installation.

2. I am not Amazon. Im just a guy with a printer trying to make an interesting product for the community that I love. If you receive the bushings and are not immediately impressed with them then you will never be and it's not something you have to grow into over time. Fortunately I haven't had to refund anyone. Remove them from the car and send them back for a refund. I need the bushings back ASAP because once the 3M tape sets after a few days it becomes difficult to remove them from car without cosmetic imperfections on the base when you use a flat head screw driver to pry them out.

3. I send these out in poly bags as this cuts down on the weight of the item which keeps costs low. Because these bushings take abuse no harm will come to them from shipping in this manner.

4. Im not able to alter the title of this thread in regard to price. The original amount of $40 was based on Alloy 910 prices at the time but since then it has only gone up. The price is now $47

5. Overseas non domestic requests will be subject to additional shipping charges but there is no exchange of the bushings or refunds, the shipping is just too high. If you are willing to take the risk and make them work for you then do so but I discourage you simply because I want you to be satisfied and I would feel bad if you are stuck with something that is not going to work for you as a worst case.

Pricing:

$47 shipped for a pair of bushings US domestic.


I


TRD has developed an aftermarket door part that is claimed to increase chassis rigidity by connecting the door to the frame. I have found the TRD part gives you the feel of increased rigidity and the feel of a small reduction of slack in the steering response. I have developed an alternative loosely based on Mazda door bushings which go beyond the effect of the TRD part at a reasonable cost.

This is just a brief synopsis of what the bushings do. You can follow this thread for more information.

I will update this thread with more information so you can make an informed decision if these bushings are right for you but at this time I want to service those that have been following the TRD door stabilizer thread and understand what is involved before I start advertising.

Black 910 bushings are no longer being made due to the dye they use which clogs the nozzle. I have switched back to the natural filament which is printing well.
It is possible to dye the part using the rit dye of your choice if you wish.

Sorry, I would have had you first but I have to honor those that posted their intentions today on the other thread which I did just before you posted.

I have a first update: The 910 spool is here sooner than expected. I can now get moving with the paying testers.
I placed the spool in the dehydrator and I will give it 24 hours to make sure it's dried out completely before printing.
