Flame directed at Roush. Not you.


Just got back from a beer run (7 different 12-packs - honest). Pull up a barstool

Hmm, let me see, do I own any roush stuff? Nope. Stick with well known manufacturers. Roush, like Shelby and to some extent Steeda are just milking their names, they don't make what they sell (Well, Steeda makes some stuff I think) they just slap their names on parts and charge you a premium. You can get the same or even better stuff from the people who actually manufacture the hardware. Shop around or just ask Sam.

Not to mention, there's no guarantee that the OEM nuts will fit the Roush Stud.

That's not the point my friend. $200 for a pair of shocks SHOULD have bushings. Period. And I want Roush to feel some heat.
Response from Summit "We sent a request for the upper bushings to Roush and they informed us that these bushings are not included with their shocks. They inform their customers to reuse the factory upper shock bushings. I checked but we do not offer these bushings separately from another source. If you need replacements I would recommend getting these at your local Ford dealer".

I had the same thing with Koni - they said to reuse the original hardware. The only thing was I threw that away a long time ago when I installed a set of KYB's and the KYB hardware did not fit the Koni's. Koni did send me hardware when I asked for it but I don't understand why they cheap out on that!

To save money? It's our fault for putting up with BS like that. now that I think about it my Konis didn't come with them either, but I thought nothing of it at the time. Crap, now I'm pissed
