Solid bushes lower wishbone for 156 GTA racer

Hi people,

I'm looking for a set of solid bushes/mounts for the lower whisbones for a 156 GTA racecar.
NOT PU ones but the solid aluminum with brass bush ones. They replace the bushes that mount to the subframe.

Does anyone know who makes them? I've seen them before on the internet but I can't find the anymore...

Is it that much of the difference over pouring your own from high shore (like 90+) PU mix?

I have had a set of front bushes lathed from solid PU rod. Installed and it is working fine. I have had limited track time since installed, so cannot really tell the positive difference, but definitely no negative impact.

Going even more solid can only be better for a racer.

I have rose jointed rear control arms. They are noisy but makes easy adjustment for toe and camber.

Build up the solids. Do it, you know you want to...

These solid ones should be better. They give a bit wider track and also a bit more caster I was told.

That's also an idea, you might as well make them from solid POM.
