IRS bushings?

Which bushings should I absolutely replace on my 99 cobra? Its completely stock but a laundry list of upgrades are comming soon. Are the Maximum motorsports bushings worth the price?

The IRS bushings are a PITA to change, but they do make a
noticeable difference. After installing the IRS bushings my '01 Cobra sets
better in a turn and has almost no wheel hop under hard acceleration.

I bought the Maximum Motorsport IRS bushings. Nice kit.

Here's my .02 cents worth of advice.

Yes the bushings do make a difference in wheel hop, but depends which ones you are referring to. Since you asked if they are worth it, I assume you are referring to the Delrin bushings? They will make the most difference in the effort to stop wheel hop, but me personally would just go with the poly ones.

Also, if/being a club member we get a 10% discount through Steeda made products and they sell the poly bushings as well. I used the Steeda poly bushings to save a few bucks, cause the install price (yeah i paid someone to do it) is going to hurt the wallet!
