    Subaru BRZ Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Thinking of suspension or tire mods? Do yourself a favour and fit rear subframe bushing inserts first. Whiteline from Australia are now on my BRZ. Fantastic upgrade. At the same time fit a transmission mount insert bushing. Firms up the shift action perfectly, almost more important than...

  8. Whiteline rear subframe insert bushings

    Subaru BRZ Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    These should be everyone's first suspension mod. The rear subframe bushings are very soft, with big voids in them. The Whiteline inserts fill in those gaps and make a huge difference.
