Well, the 96+ M3 bushings are of a stiffer rubber. I run those and they don't defect much at all. If you can get Ground Control RTAB shims to further prevent deflection and toe changes under hard cornering/acceleration.

Thanks I just wasn't sure if they were compatible or not.

Does anyone in the GTA carry GC products? I would like to get the RTAB shims and some RSM's as soon as possible.

Here's a DIY link on replacing rear trailing arm bushings with GC Reinforcers.
