I finally got around to grabbing some video of the rear rubber shock mount movement. Just like front camber plates that have spherical bearings, I'm installing rear spherical mounts as well. The reason I do this is because all of the movement of the shock shaft that you see in the video is horrible for low speed damper control whether it be a 4C shock, KW, or my Penskes. Low speed damper movements are critical to tire grip and a rubber mount like this doesn't allow the damper to move and do the job its meant to until the rubber piece is out of travel. It looks like the rubber can move maybe +/-0.25 inch during this drive which is a lap around my neighborhood, so no hard cornering loads at all.

You can see the rubber part being replaced in the OEM assembly photo and the replacement part here and below. http://www-pdvmotorsports-com.myshopify.com/pages/s60r-suspension
