Exclamation Yay poly uppers!

My fox was drift car forever, slapped it together as a street car. All I had for uppers in the pile were some off brand junk with poly bushings (i know to never run them)
Ran them to get the car moving so I could work on and drift my sn95.
Also have MM lowers and PHB
I drove the car maybe 10 times in the last 1.5 years. to a couple car shows. work once or twice. dinner. nothing crazy. it mostly just sits

Fighting an issue with driveshaft hitting the floor

pinion angle was wild so I checked uppers. All looked fine. Decided to throw some new mm uppers and rubber axle housing bushings in.

this is what I found when I pulled the poly ones out.

enjoy

Thanks for sharing. No matter how much you tell people not to buy those poly uppers, they do it anyways
