I recently put some control arm bushings in my 4kq and noticed that German
Auto Parts had send me two different brands.  They all fit although one was
harder to press in the the others.

Now I need CA Bushings for my 91' CQ.  I noticed that 034 Motorsports has
Corteco/Freudenberg  CA Bushings for about $3.29 each for the 37.3mm
bushings that would be for 4kq or new ur-q, early CQ or CQ Rear.  That's
CHEAP.  Most other places are $8 - $10.

034 also has something called "first Equipment Quality"  and I don't know
much about them.  They have the larger 44.4mm Bushings for Front of a later
CQ for only $7.56  which is pretty good too as normally these seem to be
more than the smaller ones.

Does anyone know anything about Corteco/Freudenberg?
Are they just as good as OEM?
Does anything know anything about "First Equipment Quality?
