I'll see how I like the powerflex and if it's too harsh I'll try Monroe.

I stuck the monroe in my 1 with the b12 kit - works great.

So I have zero issues with the powerflex mounts. I think Monroe would be very similar, either way, whatever you do, just get rid of the OEM garbage!

Also got some Genesis helper spring guides - aluminum, much better design than the symmetrical plastic Swift guides, one of which cracked in half on me! Scary thought.

An update on whiteline bushings. I also installed some whiteline poly bushings in place of the rubber OE bushings in the rear upper arms as a test (I left in the OE ball joint.) They seem even more direct than the megan racing heim joints, but I will caution anyone thinking about this, you feel every road irregularity in the rear end.

I will probably keep them in for evaluation on track in a month and report back. Open to any comments and thoughts on this as I am not 100% sold on them yet and would be interested in other's experience.
