cheeky 8 year bump!
Surely people can give some reviews on the spoon and other brands by now?
I put my subframe on the other day with all the bolts in place but not fully tight and the amount of movement is ridiculous, looks about 5mm on each bolt!

I have these…. Both sets front and rear
difference before and after was…
car settles much faster going over bumps or uneven ground, it’s hard to explain, think of it this way, imagine going over 1 big bump in the road, after you’ve hit it, let’s say the car rebounds up and down 3 or 4 times before it’s truly settled again, well after installing the collars those rebounds are less… this effect is in every situation though, there’s a stretch of bypass close to me that I always drive, it has a dip in the road as it goes over/joins a bridge, my old daily and my FD2 sort of skip over it as you go over it at about 70/80mph, they rebound up and down at least 4 times before the car truly settles again. In the EK9 it rebounds once and it’s dealt with and back settled again, same in any situ really if the car is kind of skipping about
The car in general also just feels a bit tighter overall, chassis doesn’t creak and squeak as much since installing them which is an added bonus I was not expecting
