Solid Subframe Bushings...(Not Risers) FD Legal Options?

What are you guys running on your FD legal cars for solid sub frame bushings? Don't want risers, need to maintain same suspension geometry on my car, but need some total replacement solid sub frame bushings to get rid of some wheel hop.

What are my options?

I thought risers were beneficial to the suspension geometry?

Of all the things that FD cars get away with, I can't believe they don't allow altering the subframe height less than one inch... Ridiculous.

I don't trust chinese knockoff bullshit machining tolerances.

I just wanna get something nice, but it seems like all the nice stuff is all subframe risers now.

Lathed piece of aluminum. China would be fine. China probably has more experienced/better equipment than most others with respects to machining.

No disrespect to our Chinese members, but fuck China parts.

SPL parts bushings are FD legal.
