Fastline Compliance Bushing Update: New 2-piece kit supersedes 4-piece kit

When we broke the Fastline Performance Compliance Bearing kit out in 2012, the Acura/Accord community went wild! The increased steering feel and response coupled with reduced torque-steer has been a boon for enthusiasts world-wide.

 

Dated Nov 29, 2017: SINCE THIS WRITING, we have re-released the 4-piece kit, as well as offered the 2-piece LCA bearings a-la carte. Link for details

 

This is a 4-piece kit, replacing the compliance bushing, as well as the smaller arm-to-subframe mount bushing on the lower control arm. Years of offering this product have revealed a couple of facts:

  • Many people were unsure if the smaller bearing was supposed to replace the bushing on the subframe or the one on the shock mount. So, lots of people simply didn't swap it out.
  • Those that did swap it out experienced generally great reliability, but occasionally have reported noise from that small bearing. The noise was linked to corrosion inside there, which caused a need to replace it.
  • Many people want to order the FLP kit, but the $299 cost was too prohibitive for them.

Because of these observations, Heeltoe has elected to sell the FLP kit as ONLY a compliance bushing replacement. The other smaller bearing has been removed from the kit as it is mostly adding cost where it is not needed. We were able to reduce the selling price of the bearing kit by more than 30%!

 

It should be known that, in our very own #HTSpecTSX, we never installed the smaller subframe-bearing. So this change has been qualified by ourselves and we feel it represents a confident and competent move towards saving our customers money.

Your feedback is always appreciated! Let us know your thoughts to this change!
