Have you ever DRIVEN a car with the powerflex or UUC RTAB's?

I have had powerflex on my own cars, and installed them on other peoples cars. They are a wonderful upgrade, one you can actually feel.

When going this route you don't need anything beyond a drill bit and air chisel for removal and your hands to install. It is a thing of beauty.

Nothing wrong with OE bushings, but nothing wrong with powerflex either.

Oh, and there is more movement of a stock bushing than a powerflex, pressed or not. Both are BOLTED to the car.

As for special tools, whatever. People said I couldn't do rear wheel bearings without a special tool, I did that too. Even documented it on youtube. There is always a way around things. It is the difference between experience and book knowledge.

Nice write-up, and Kudos for adding the other ball joints, most people skip that item.
