On what? It's a very expensive spherical bearing RTAB replacement suitable for race use only.

Yes, the Dinan part would be a direct replacement for your Meyle HD RTABs. I would highly advise against running these in a street driven car. Stick with OE/OEM bushings combined with limiters.

I can understand the quest for the ultimate in parts longevity but many people fail to understand the consequences of alternative designs whether it be a bearing in place of a bushing or materials like delrin and poly instead of rubber. And many times, these parts won't necessarily last any longer than (or even as long as) the stock rubber part.

What? There are only 2 RTABs.

I think Brady runs the same setup I do: OE M3 RTABs with the Vorshlag limiters in back and Meyle HD CABs up front.

But there are only 2 RTABs. The 2 you are referring to in the front aren't RTABs (rear trailing arm bushings, which by definition are in the rear). Those bushings are control arm bushings and are not used with limiters. RTABs and CABs are different bushings with different designs for handling slightly different jobs.

This whole thread has been about RTABs so far. Seemed as if you were asking Brady if he used the same bushings up front as in the back. Hard to tell when you're going OT when you don't use complete sentences.
