    OME Poly Bushing kit ???

    :bang:I ordered a complete OME bush kit for my 80 series from MAF... but what I received is totally different from what I was expecting...

    These are the bushings that they sent me for the Front Control Arm to Axle

    I was expecting something like this kit from Slee with the metal reinforcement:

    Can someone please tell me if I got the correct bush kit for my cruiser??? IF yes how I'm supposed to install them?

    Those look like bushing for shackles. ?

    MAF shows those as the rear control arm bushings?

    those look like the frame side bushings for the leading arms., they are identical to the slee ones i got.
    the slee ones you pictured are the axle side.

    actually Rich thought the OME and Slee buchings are much more stiff than OEM bushings ..

    no, they're not... I got the control arm to chassis bush kit, ...these are wider... I'll post some pics tomorrow to show the difference


    BTW great OME catalog... I've been serching for this for ages....This catalog explains why I got only 3 bushes... for some odd reason, OME decided that you need to buy 2 kits (3 bushes x kit) for 1 car...
