One additional observation for general consideration: I'm fairly certain that the whiteline bushings are notably increasing interior sound levels from road noise and "harshness" associated with the tire slap of hitting a bump. I'm realizing that the ride quality is definitely a tad bit better than the OEM struts after 82.5k miles, but that I'm hearing a good amount more road noise and noises associated with hitting imperfections. And when I do hit a jarring bump, it SOUNDS worse than it feels.

While they are wonderful, I am asking myself right now if I would do them again vs. putting in the crappy OEM bushing, which would tear again in 60-80k miles. This is my wife's DD, so I want a controlled ride with good handling but I don't want any increase in NVH.
