If you mean solid bushings, I did it on a FWD 4k that I autocrossed. It
worked great ... for a while, anyway. Then I noticed quite a few spot welds
around the engine compartment started breaking as a result of the additional
load -- the car would pull just over 1g on a fresh set of Yo'mama RS2s! --
and eventually the shell loosened up enough that the car had to be laid to
For racing, where you can seam-weld the chassis, it's a great idea; for a
street car on sticky rubber, it's probably not such a good idea.
