These are harder durometer material so there’s less wiggle in the bushings. Had to install these to get rid of wobble because there was too much play in the original bushings. Not sure why these wouldn’t be included with the track bar in the first place.
I would give 4-stars except for the difficulty pressing the poly bushing in is almost impossible because the bushing swells as you apply pressure which works against you. I finally machined a mandrel with a pin to capture the ID and keep the bushing straight. Even then, I had to use a flat head screw driver and a hammer to smack the rim on the off side once one side started crooked.
With running 49”x21”-0 tires we really put these things to the test and they past with flying colors .
