Last one. Now I will bleed the front & rear brakes since I boiled the fluid bedding these in.

BTW great update on the bushings being sold installed in housings. This would have made for a really quick install.

Thanks for the writeup and feedback. And just a note the bushing will stabilize the alignment but if you want a specific handling toe setting then you will have to get another alignment to center your numbers. The standard Lexus toe specs are ranging from toe in to toe out so a good treadwear setting would be to shoot for 0 toe. As far as pressing in I use a cut section of 3" thinwall aluminum tubing with machined faces on each end and a 10 ton press. its just enough undersize to get things out without impacting the bracket ID.

I can't wait to install these so I can lose the death grip on the steering wheel too. My new tires arrive today so I should get everything on soon.

Sent mine to Mike @FIGS to have the stock bushings pressed out & the new polyurethane ones pressed in - the new bushings are the 90 durometer ones (standard).

All the local shops I took it to were afraid of ruining the aluminum bracket - the old ones were stuck in there pretty good! Stock bushings are equally spaced in the bracket. The new ones from FIGS end up basically flush on both sides when pressed in.

I haven't driven on them much yet. I did notice a slight increase in NVH, but if this helps the tires last longer & keeps the car from wondering all over the road, it will be worth it to me.

I installed my bushings along with F Sport shocks and sway bars (I already had H&R springs from the previous owner) last weekend, then got my new tires installed and had it aligned yesterday. Overall, I'm still not happy with how the car handles. My death grip on the wheel has lightened a bit, but I still don't really feel that the car is easy to handle. Thankfully, I haven't noticed a whole lot of NVH since the install, so that's good.

So what is the verdict on handling after FIGS bushings?
