What does this do for you?
Spherical bearings allow the control arms to pivot in a smooth, and accurate motion as intended. No more deflection under loading, no more changing in toe which results in an inconsistent and nervous feeling on track! This bushing location showed drastic deflection during on-track driving resulting in loss of performance. These bushings are essential for any dedicated track car and the best part NVH increase is minimal so we use them on our street cars as well!
DIY Easy Install
This parts can be installed at home if you have access to a press for removal of the OEM rubber bushings. If you don’t have access to a press we are more than happy to install them for you if you remove your control arms and ship them to us. Call us for details or simply add the Cortex installation option before checking out!
The CorteX Racing monoballs utilize an American made high quality stainless ball with a Teflon lined race so you will have years of trouble free life from the bearings, just like our camber plates and sway bar end links.
Kits include: mono ball housings, bearings, retaining clips, spacers, and Loctite sleeve retainer. Instructions are available for download online. Bearings are pre-assembled in the housings before shipment to the user.
Also notice our optional OEM bushing removal mandrels available as an option. They are perfectly sized to allow removal of the OEM bushings without damaging the control arms when using a press.
