Default IPD torque rods with rubber bushings

Anybody put rubber bushings into IPD rods? Don't really wan't or need hard af poly in there, but would like adjustability.

Are the poly bushings in the rods the same OD?

No, the poly bushings in the IPD arms are a considerably smaller overall diameter than stock bushings. Off the top of my head the polly bushings have an OD of 2" and ID of 1". You may be able to find rubber bushings in that size but they would be solid rubber and hence still not flex like the stock rubber bushings do.

It would probably be easier (and cheaper) to mod stock control arms to be adjustable. You just need to get a turnbuckle from Pegasus or somewhere and cut and weld it in.

I don't know what size you need, but something like this: https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/pr...?Product=SJ080
