^^^^ Rubber insulators 48158B and C and 48257 are obsolete on 2012. They need to update their stuff!

2013 IS-F suspension changes are listed below:

Major Difference
 The following parts have been changed ensuring vehicle stability and response while steering.
- Front and Rear Shock Absorber Assembly
- Front and Rear Coil Spring

 The characteristics of the bushes used on the following rear suspension arm components have been changed, ensuring vehicle stability.
- Rear Upper No. 2 Control Arm
- Toe Control Link Sub-assembly
- Rear Lower No. 2 Suspension Arm


It sounds like the bushes were changed, but the control arms remained the same.
