Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on

-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    Garagistic delrin subframe and RTAB bushings + subframe reinforcements-AVOID

    Like the title says, I bought pretty much the ENTIRE garagistic catalogue for my car regarding bushings, even some shifter bushings. NOTHING has fit, period. The subframe reinforcement plates don't like up properly and had to be heavily modified, some such as the rear strut tower reinforcement platers don't even work as they literally cover the bolt holes for the struts and there isn't even have enough material to drill holes for them...

    The delrin subframe bushings are WAY over tolerance and will not go into the subframe period...The Delrin RTABS can't even get the aluminum sleeve to insert into the bushings OUT of the trialing arm...I gave them the benefit of the doubt and tried the same method everyone uses as far as drawing the bushings together in the trailing arm, and all I did was successfully strip a grade 8 bolt in the process, destroy the bushing, and succeed in getting it so stuck in the trailing arm due to it being over sized that I honestly have no idea how I am going to get it out now...

    How any company can release a series of products like this is well beyond me. I had one of my mechanic buddies double check everything and work with me because I honestly thought it was just me, but it honestly is not.

    Even going back to the shifter bushings and shift carrier bushing I bought form them, they all had to be modified significantly to get to work...WTF

    Learn from my mistakes and do not waste a good amount of money on garbage products.

    I see you aren't open to the possibility you are doing something wrong, when everything you were sent does not appear to fit or work, and other people on the internet do not share the same issues you do...

    Did you contact Garagistic before posting?

    Aren't you the guy who had issues just dropping your subframe?

      No photos and no proof. No actual measurements. Just words written in a fairly aggressive manner.

      Thread should be deleted. Not really fair on garagistic. Even if there are issues at least give them a chance to rectify before carrying on like a child on the internet

          Is that possible that the shop that tried to install the parts is incompetent? Not blaming them, but they are part of the equation. A few pictures and measurements would have helped too. ;-)

            I spec'd everything out with a good dial caliper. They were indeed off. To garagistic's credit, they sent me a new set based on actual measurements, but it is too late. I already installed a set of condor speed shop bushings with ZERO issue...I think what they did was make delrin bushings at the same specs that they do their poly that have at least a little give. Their delrin bushings did not and when they were out of spec there was no chance of them pressing in. Before anyone wants to bash me for posting my experience, you might want to look into who has actually installed the aforementioned parts.

            If someone wants to send me a link, or post one for that matter, of someone that actually has installed or reviewed their delrin bushings (not poly), I would love to see it. As far as I can tell, no one is installing them and there aren't even any reviews on their own site for them...On top of that, none of their reinforcement plates properly lined up...All they had to do was advertise them as a rough cut set and I probably wouldn't be as annoyed...I can literally produce my own off a friend's CNC machine, so if I had known before hand I would have made my own.

              Lol. That actually doesn't make sense.... You're welding in reinforcement plates that say "will require trimming and welding", yet you expect it to be clean.

              Also if you knew how to produce them yourself using a CNC machine, I doubt you would be making this entire thread, to rant, about metal plates......

              I understand the frustration with derlin bushings and having issues with fitment, but the company helped as much as they could, or as much as you were willing to let them.
