Easy enough so far
The part itself is nice enough. The bushing and crush tubes were free of any noticeable defects. You can tell that the bushing material has some flex to it (it's not rock hard), but not much flex at all. I don't think it is possible to squeeze it out of shape with hands. One interesting thing I noticed is that the crush tubes feel light. I have no doubt they are stainless steel as advertised but they seem lighter than other metal parts of similar size. I'm sure TIC knows what they're doing and also the load will be distributed across the mounting bolt. I have no doubts that it's strong enough.
Installation was also easy enough. I did have my car apart for installation of other bushings as well so the hubs and OEM bushings were easily accessible to remove the old bushings. After minimal use of sandpaper to remove some old rubber/grease, I simply pressed the TIC bushing halves in by hand, which is a very nice change from fighting other bushings into lateral links. If your hub is rusty you would need to do more clean-up. For the crush tubes I used a rubber hammer to get them started then a big C clamp to press it the rest of the way. Easy enough.
I still don't have the car together with all the other bushings so I don't have any driving impressions and I probably won't be able to tell which bushings caused which part of any feel/NVH.
