The clear consensus seems to be to stick with OEM (or Ralliart) bushes on the lower rear arms - the inner bush (maybe the outer too?) is a "pillowball" bush/bearing, aka "rose joint".

Try contacting RossSport, or look on their website.

EDITED:- Or do you mean to toe control arms? In my view the best aftermarket bushes are made by SuperPro.

trailing arm on e9 is that longitudinal long one.. so the inner bush is a rubber one, not a pillowball like on evo X. We used Ralliart one and I would reccomend it highly. On my car I will convert it to pure spherical, but ralliart one, which is stiffer than OE works great. I would avoid polyurethane ones..

Still not sure which arm we are talking about? The long bottom arm (that is used for camber adjustment) definitely has an OE inner pillowball bush. For the toe arm I wouldn't deny that the same kind of bush would be a nice to have, but Mitsi apparently didn't think it was necessary so I'm inclined to take some notice of that. On the other hand, if they then introduced it on the X, I guess they must have changed their minds, or could it be that it was necessitated by a subtle change to the geometry design?

Have you ever used Superpro polyurethane bushes? In particular they are designed such that movement isn't restricted simply to flexing of the polyurethane, which I believe is the case with many, most, or even all (?) OE and aftermarket conventional style bushes.

Whiteline or SuperPro is fine for that bushing. The Ralliart bushing would probably be my first choice, but they are difficult (and/or expensive) to find, so poly it is. The trailing arm bushing is the one bushing in the rear suspension that will actually make the biggest improvement in the car's handling if upgraded, since the rest are already either very good/spherical, or redundant.

no, the trailing arm is the long curved one, the one with the handbrake cable....( this.. https://www.4turbo.pl/rear-trailing-...,3,48086,19139) That one, on the 4-9, has a rubber bush connecting it to the chassis.. on the X there is a spherical there too..

I tried powerflex on some other cars. Personally, I would choose ralliart bushes on the evo, if possible. I tried it on a few cars and it just works flawlessly.. As long as those are available I would avoid polyurethane..
