I've got the TiC race bushings. They are uber stiff. If you are only DD'ing the car, go for the comfort version.

I bought mine before they had 2 versions. I think that means it is closer to the raceversion in stiffness. I don't think they are that bad but I already have the outrigger bushings, Grp N tranny mount & pitch stop and the tranny subframe bushings so I may just not notice anymore.

I've got the full Energy Suspension polyuerethane bushing kit. Basically, every rubber bushing in the car has been replaced. The only one I haven't replaced is the impeller bushing on the driveshaft. The only complaint I have is there is a lot more road noise.

Just remember if you do all those bushings its a good idea to go get your alignment checked cause that can really change the geometry of your suspension.

Umm, yeah. My right rear wheel has some positive camber that we haven't been able to get adjusted in but it hasn't caused any excess tire wear. Just a little looser rear end around the turns.

bump! Did you ever get the problem solved? My 03 wrx has the same issue. When I have the car loaded with people it feels just how you described yours. I have new potenza tires and my transmission was rebuilt under warranty around 60k. I currently have 100k on the chassis. Any solution???

Is here any chance this vibration is felt in the steering wheel or shifter? if so loading the rear may be raising the front enough to change the angle on the front cv's letting you know you have a bad inner joint.
