    Rear Shock mount bushings? Options?

    Okay im finally doing the suspension on the accord while the engine is apart, everything is going good except the rear shock mount bushings in the knuckles are shot, so i chisled them out no prob, but what can i get to replace them? I know i could go oem honda but what else do we have? Ive seen legend masters thread about his but the kit costs $100 which is a waste for just the 2 bushings we can use from it, does anybody have any poly bushings thatll fit? What about aftermarket non honda, any decent bushings out there? Help me suspension masters!!

    BTW: The suspension is revalved bilsteins on weapon R circuit pro coilovers, 500lb/in front, 375 lb/in rear (yes i know its stiff, i need it for racing), poly radius rod bushings, poly front swaybar bushings, i may go with camber kits but i dont feel the need to drop it very much, maybe 1.5" not sure yet

    Edit: This entire setup soo far has cost me less than $400

    good thing you have the coilovers so you can raise your car up to make room for tires.

    I would go with OEM bushings. When i did my rear disc swap i replace mine with OEM ones and no problems. I do however have a stock suspension setup, but they should be fine. My 2 cents.

    If the springs are the same height put the front springs on the REAR. That would help stick the nose on launches.
