The OEM bushings will become soft overtime allowing movement in the steering rack. This could potentially take away valuable feedback from the driver, causing excess play in the steering wheel. The Whiteline bushings will tighten things up, and you will see improvements in turn-in, but it makes for a better driving experience.

Please keep in mind that with harder bushings, inherent vibrations can be transferred into the vehicle.  Included in the kit is a tool to assist you with a simple installation.

Great kit.

Installation wasn't too bad. The only problem I was concerned about was realigning the steering joint that had to be disconnected. I made markings on the pieces but just couldn't get them to line up again. It's really marginal, though, when looking at the markings I made. We'll see how this misalignment affects my steering wheel alignment.

good product

Firmed up steering a lot. I combined with the Cusco power steering brace and I am very pleased! (2011 WRX Limited Sedan)

Great product! Easy fitment

I didn't get to purchase it here, regrettably! I'll never make that mistake again. RSD customer service is one of the best I've dealt with. As for the bushings I've had JDM bushings that came with the car and they were already stiff but these make you feel everything. Even if you wheel is 1/4oz out of balance. As for steering response it feels like new, I won't say more responsive but better. Take it from an engineer the cusco brace is not needed the oem bracket is just as great. Buy this and don't look back!

The steering feels more direct, especially when turning. The feedback is a lot better, road imperfections will also be felt more.


  • AnswerQ: Steering wheel feel  Malammadi 6 months ago

    Hi, would this make the steering wheel feel firmer on normal use?

    • A: Upgraded steering rack bushings will provide more feedback through the steering wheel and better steering response for normal and spirited use.

    • A: This kit would not have a noticeable affect on steering effort, but would increase steering feel and response under most driving conditions.

  • AnswerQ: compatability  Madapaka 7 months ago

    Will these work on a 2015 STI rack that is retrofitted into an 09 WRX?

    • A: These bushings would more than likely fit a 2015 STI rack, but Whiteline has not confirmed fitment yet, and we are not able to guarantee fitment on retrofitted setups.

  • AnswerQ: Poly?  motoboy022 1 year ago

    Are these bushings poly? I can't find anywhere that says for sure?

    • A: Polyurethane is the material that they are manufacture out of.

  • AnswerQ: install time?  nickgordon11172309 2 years ago

    how long would a professional shop take to install this?

    • A: You will want to contact your local shop for labor on this, but I would have to guess no more than 2 hours.
