    they go on the tops of the springsin between the spring and the mount, it just replaces that rubber cushion, i did this kit on my 91 rex and it made a world of difference, all my bushings are polyur. The front end sag is no longer existant, i dropped my car damn low and when i did all th ebushings it made up for not having a camber kit, these kits are time consuming but soo worth it haha.
    anything else?

    o yeah i got the whole kit together and i drove around with it and manwhat a difference. i don't know about making up for the camber because i am about to drop down the civic 1.5 inches, but i got 18s as far as rims go so i don't want to go to low and i don't want camber wear because 18's rubber is not cheap!

    i have a 95 coupe i did the energy euspension bushing kit back in 98.. i can say this it was worth the money spent on it. i am about to put poly graphite pushing in my car to see how those are, do not know if there worth it or not but ill hit you guy up on it and also going to do the prothane trailing arm bushing to..


    good luck putting the bushing kit in your car...
