Any more Cusco owners? I'm considering them, also do they come with bushings, and are they compatable with aftermarket exhausts?

Haven't heard much about them. I know that they are a great company. I have used their coilovers before.

Additionally in reguards to the Stillens, I haven't ordered yet and I am wondering where I can get them the cheapest. thanks

I ordered a set from Grubbs yesterday, they have a bunch in stock, unlike most places I called. I paid 299 plus shipping.

Also, Summit racing carries the bushings too for less than suspension.com.

prothane 14-1115 - 13.99
prothane 14-1116 - 19.39

Both places, however, are out of stock.

Anybody have any experience w/these Progress front/rear sways? Other than being solid and possibly a bit heavier than others, and the non-adjustable front, any other drawbacks? Pretty competitive price...


Construction: Solid; Front bar diameter: 27mm, Rear bar diameter: 22mm; Powdercoated graphite finish
Bushings: Polyurethane
Stiffness settings for the front/rear sways: Fronts non-adjustable; Rears are adjustable
Approximate Price: $260?
Pros/Cons/Experiences/Settings: Front/rear bars can be purchased separately

The Progress bars don't sound that great....others are cheaper, lighter, and adjustable.

Which ones are cheaper? None that I've seen. Built in collars and polyurethane bushings are included in that price too. Only drawback I can see is that the front isn't adjustable, and possibly heavier. Wondering if anybody has actually tried them out?

This is what I got from Summit when I tried to order.
"This part is temporarily out of stock, but you can order it now. Tentative ship date: 8/17/2005, if your order is placed today."

I did find that they have the Energy suspension bushings in stock and ready to ship today.

The total for the energy suspension bushings was $36.85 shipped. That is $13.95 a set for front and rears, greasable.

Thats not too bad. I still have to order the sways too.
Yea, you can save about $8 if you don't mind waiting.

How would I save $8? I ordered the Energy suspension bushings. They can't be much different than the Prothanes other than price. Polyurethane is what it is, doesn't matter who sells it.

I was just saying, summit was cheaper than suspension.com for the same parts. Which ones did you get and from where? UPS actually just dropped off the sways while I was typing this, lol.

I updated the main post to add PE bushing ordering information to accompany the Stillen bars, and added info about the new bars by Progress.

Sin4me, hey thanks for the props. I bet youcan just call Summit and cancel and then just order the other bushings. They are great to deal with on the phone. Don't e-mail them, it takes a long time to get a reply, just call them. They told me I will get the bushings in two days sent from the Nevada warehouse. Note that I am in CA.
