Hi Everyone!

We have finalized the rear subframe bushing inserts for the SH Chassis. If your Forester build date is up to June of 2010, then these bushings will fit without any issue.

These bushings have the necessary voids removed to work with the sub-frame spacer mounts. We are taking pre-orders on these bushings now and are offering them in two durometer ratings.

Comfort and Sport. Comfort is the softest rating we will offer and we are also going to offer up the sport rating for those who want to have a bit more tightness out of the rear.

Price: 103.99USD for the complete set of 8 Bushings.

You can order the bushings from our site here:

Comfort Bushing Inserts: http://www.mann-engineering.com/products/powerflex-rear-subframe-inserts-comfort-2009-forester-0610-prod

Sport Bushing Inserts: http://www.mann-engineering.com/products/powerflex-rear-subframe-inserts-sport-2009-forester-0610-prod

Powerflex includes the proper grease to go with these inserts.

Order them now before this first shipment is sold out! Orders will be shipped in the order they are placed.

If you are local and need to have these bushing inserts installed. Please PM us and we can schedule you in to get them installed!

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Thanks,
Gary

Pre-order slots are filling up for the Comfort bushings. Still have lots of slots open for the Sport bushings.

Just wondering how much stiffer the ride will be for the rear. I don't want to rattle the exhaust off. :biggrin:
They are not anywhere near that stiff. They are firm enough to just solidify the back but add very little to no additional harshness. I am sure people who run the 06/10-Present Bushings did not notice much but definitely notice the rear end being more connected to the car. I am sure the person we put the comfort rated bushings on for test fitment can comment on the feeling of the car.

That is also the reason why we have a Comfort and Sport Rating. One is softer than the other. ;)

I'm the lucky one to have them installed as part of the test fitment. :rock: I haven't noticed an increased in ride hardness, but the rear definitely feels a lot more solid. It feels a lot more connected and composed during aggressive cornering.

I would definitely recommend these.
