    Anyone had this problem ? My car had damper on the rear passenger side bolt - removed per Steeda's instruction but the bushing underneath has a different pattern than the bushing support.... What do I do - just installed it over it anyway ? IMG_20200516_192357.jpg

    Don't worry much about the voids, the main circumference is what does the work.

    Steeda has made it very clear that it is very important for the voids to match the bushing. They even patented the voids!

    I would make sure they provide you an updated design. Surely they will not suggest installing as is - as I have screenshots with them stating how important the voids are.

    :)

    You definitely need to match the lugs in the existing bushing. That's how these work so well - they fill in the areas where there are no lugs and go around the lugs themselves. You may have to have one modified on a milling machine or something so it matches that particular side (just my guess) but lets see what the Steeda folks come up with.
