With passage of time many components of car degrade. One of the components that is often neglected is the bushing. Usually in Pakistan when ever we do some steering and front suspension related work the front part bushing gets replaced however we rarely look at the rear bushing. In my KE 70 I have been using the original rear bushing since the car came out of the factory. The original rear bushing is excellent and has served me well for more than 29 years till I changed my 4K engine with a 4 Age. Within months one of my cars control rod bush is broken and my Pan hard bush is also broken. In the local market all the bushing are really economical bushes which may work with the 4k for 2-3 years but with 4 Age they don't last more than 2-3 months. Fortunately KE 70 Bushing is same as the legendary AE-86 bushing so I have decided to go for a Prothane urathene kit. Prothane AE86 Bushings for your Toyota Corolla from HorsepowerFreaksAs this is cheaper compared to TRD bushing and really a good investment.The bushing is available in both Red and Black color. I have opted for the black color as on the look side its more near the original rubber bushing .I am attaching the pictures so that you can have an idea of the this activity.

Handling has improved. Noise level is almost same. Hope this kit will run for some more time to come.
Very Nice Work....You will Fell The Difference Of These In quiet good ways...
@SER_GTRYes you are right. Handling has improved a lot and the power delivery is much smooth now. Another thing which I was not expecting is that the traction is also much better.Initially it was easy to spin one of the wheels and u have to be careful with the throttle however its not that easy now and you can have more throttle infact almost full throttle for a straight line without any loss of traction or one wheel spin. Will do some hard testing when the whether will be little better.
Thats going to make a hugh difference
good going, you are definitely upgrading your car with the passage of time, the next step is an lsd differential :), will drop by for a test drive soon
How Much These Bushing Cost That's A Concern Now :D.....!!
The price of the bushes from Ebay is around $100. From some sports outlet it is around $140. You need to find some one in states to save you from the shipping.
Fantastic, I am confident that over all handling must have improved a great deal.
