    I went with Pedders poly radius rod bushings and everything else is Energy Suspension poly bushings. the only porblem I had was lining up and starting the bolts back in the rear x member mounts

    I just installed a full Pedders bushing kit with a Harrop differential mount. Pedders had great customer support and it's like I'm driving a different car. FYI this is no easy task you are about to undertake but well worth it!

    Have a plan of what you want to do with the car. You are talking about replacing all of the bushings on the GTO. Are you doing it all at once or in stages? Are you replacing springs and dampers at the same time? Are you looking at spring, strut & shock combination or coil overs?

    Are you staying OE height or dropping the ride height? If you drop the rear ride height, you will want to look into rear camber adjustable bushes if you're dropping more than 12 - 18 mm. You can do a few bushes at a time, but plan ahead so you don't have to re-do what you just did.

    Kits are generally less expensive then buying a few bits here and there. If you are planning on replacing the front struts and coils, replace the mounts and bearings with them. Also put in the front radius rod bushes and get the caster set and replace the rear radius rod bushes at the same time as the front struts are done. This way you take it in for one front alignment.

    i want the car to handle great and ride ok.i will be doing it all at once.
    i have purchased the struts , shocks and springs 1/2 " drop. monroe sport gt/ kings hd.

    my radious rod bushings and strut mounts are shot at 24,000 miles.i have been under the car looking and thinking out my plan of attack . i am ready to buy but having a hard time figuring which to buy. i'll be doing headers to before the alignment so it will only need 1 alignment.
    thanks for all the replies

    you will love it when your done. it will handle like sports car, like it should have from the factory.

    frim what I understand, these cars were built to compete with the BMWs, the soft flimsy bushings aided in gaining ride quality, but sacrificed handling to do it
