how do I figure out if doing low compliance bushings will cause bind? I have an NC Miata and already have all SuperPro bushings in the front. My plan was to go all SuperPro bushings in the rear sometime this year... 4 of the 5 control arms on the rear of the car have a ball joint on one side, so that should reduce the chances of bind, correct? my top shock mount also has a monoball mount for it.

once the bushings are installed reassemble the whole suspension/wheel without the spring (car still on jackstands). You should be able to pretty easily move the suspenison through it's entire range of motion with a jack. if you have bind you'll probably start to feel the resistance and possibly even lift the car off the jack stand before the wheel hits the wheel well.

Love the build! A little bit of style and a whole of track goodies. Great stuff on the coolant, oil, and brakes being able to handle track duty in hot temps.

haha, well that would work... but I was hoping there was a way I can figure that out before spending money on the bushing and time/money on the install...

oh, in that case maybe check the forums ;) seriously though, I think SuperPro and Whiteline from what I've seen are pretty good at doing their homework. When there is a risk of binding they incorporate reliefs in the bushings. Whiteline does that on some of their DC2 and I believe R35 GTR stuff from what I've seen on our projects.

they're all small bushings though... there isn't really any space to incorporate any reliefs if needed... I guess I'll just buy them and hope for the best :D
