Why are the stock strut rod bushings so bad? Watch the video.

No rubber bushings to give when braking or turning to change the alignment specs possibly decreasing the amount of tire contact with the road.

The lack of rubber adds no harshness to the ride quality. Didn't believe it myself until I did it. And they are adjustable, helps fine tuning caster.

besides the obvious, Adjustability the rod ends or Heim joint allow articulation instead of bushing bind resulting in a better ride
