Ok guys I have installed the rev motorsports bushings for the veloster onto my car! When I ordered them I figured it should be the same and it is. The stock bushings are really terrible and super soft. I am really impressed with how much of a difference it made. I got mine on ebay for $30.00 shipped and only took a few days to get to me me. So far I have only driven around with them for about 5 miles but when I shift with the paddles I can tell there is a more positive shift now. I have had bushings in other cars and made a good difference so I figured why not try these out.

If you do not like vibration in the cabin then this is not for you. It does transfer the vibs into the car and can be felt and heard. I think they should break in after time goes on and I get some miles on them.

I would definitely get these if you want to put the power down better and reduce wheel hop on take off. I will post a few pictures in the morning of them.

cool, its nice when parts are cross referenced.

how bad is the vibration? ive had 3 poly mounts on my previous focus and it felt like a go-kart. I don't think the dog bone wont be bad, so I may try it

EDIT:

I noticed they have a red "RACE" set and then a softer "Peformance" green set, so I may try the green ones out

That will work! Took me about 10-15 min for install and we'll worth it.

I love tapatalk for posting pictures. Way easier that uploading them on photo bucket and copy and pasting links. Even if I'm on computer, I'll pull my phone out to post pictures now.

The red ones arent that bad. I drove 85 miles to work and never noticed them at all. Only time I noticed is when I was stopped but I got used to it pretty quick

As of right now that I know of yes. If you go to turbosocks.com He has 2 mounts for the veloster. The lower one should fit but not sure of the upper one. DOing just the bushings helps a lot and for $30 instead of $200 for a new dogbone mount it is worth it.

I think the one he has would put more vibration into the car which some don't mind and some do mind.

i feel the same way. my focus i had before had stage 2 cams, loud exhaust with a header, and a bunch more "racing" stuff, i had all 3 engine mounts in poly also... so it felt really like a go-cart lol

but with 2 kids now, i want a quick comfortable car. lol

The red isn't realy that bad. I have had full bushings on my rsx and that was bad bu this is just the dogbone so it wont be as bad as a full setup would be
