Blox Spherical Rear Trailing Arm Bushing Kit

Has anyone tried these, they looks like would behave like a poly trailing arm bushing, has anyone tried them, I see they are super pricey and probably wouldn't last as long since they are a ball bearing with salt, water and such?

honestly i dont think they're worth it for that price. ive seen cheaper energy bushings that work just as well but recommended only spherical if your doing track racing.

Yeah, just wondering, I wasn't going to drop that kind of cash, I'm going to just go with some Mooge ones when the weather cleared, someone told me on here they fell in love with their civic after replacing them, and mine has 200k hard miles on it, and one is demolished and loose. I'm too worried about buying the cheap ones on eBay and finding out they don't last worth anything.

lol im one of those people that fell in lveo with my civic with the moog ones, i had ebay coils on blow struts and replaced the trailing arm bushings and believe it or not i fell in love with the ebay springs, thats how much of an improvement it was! but i wanted real (safe) suspension and bought new KYB struts with Tein springs and my car rides like a beauty. just as comfortable as my sisters 07 altima.

Were your shocks good? The coils dropped the car too much?

ebay coils arent the worst for the time being but they start to get really bouncy after 6 months to a year which is rearded... blox isnt the worst brand out there, i have their camber kit in the rear and no problems yet and its been over a year.

Shocks were good, I pulled them off and checked them for air, I cut the back ones off cause I couldn't get them off easily, bad decision since they were good. I replaced them with monroe gas shocks, just in the back though. Must be the trailing arm bushings the whole time.
