Ballade Sport Suspension bushings?

Anyone have any feedback that they could share on Ballade Sport suspension bushing kit?

Also looking at limied slips for my road race S2K. Any thoughts on OSG vs. Kaaz or similar? Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Peter

Took the plunge and bought the Ballade spherical (pillow ball) suspension bushings. Beautiful set of bushing! really nice pieces. Had to have a local race shop install as the old bushing were hard to remove and the new ones even harder to install.

While I have the car apart I rebuilt the diff with a 4.77 ring and pinion and OS Giken limited slip.

First outing will be at Gingerman raceway in Michingan July 12-13. This is a SCCA National even. Come on out as it should be a good weekend of racing. I will be up against two Honda Preludes and a Datsun 260Z.

Wish me luck.

Good Luck! Interested to hear how you like the 4.77; it should keep you in power a lot better than the 4.10

Good on short tracks, not so much on long ones (Road Atlanta and Road America come to mind).

I found that it was rather difficult to manage at Gingerman. Running out of gear before full track out was an issue for me. I finally settled in on a 4.44.
