just bought these adjustables strut rods from OT,and have a doubt :
does i have to put a bushing (polyurethane)where the bracket is fixing to the frame, or does it works without any bushing, just metal with metal.
in this case is there any noise or vibration?
i use the car both street ans track, but want a correct riding on the street.
thank's .

It bolts directly to the metal. Generally, less rubber in the suspension makes the ride less comfortable, but the adjustable strut rods have the advantage that they move easier up and down, which reduces the impact of a bump. On some road conditions it may be a little more comfortable than before while you may give up some comfort on others.

If they are Street or Track strut rods (Opentracker is a distributor for us so I'm assuing they are) then mount them directly into the frame end hole. No bushings required - metal on metal.
