This grease is made for poly bushings, very tacky and will last a long time

I used Outfront's Stinger ECU and wire harness.  Their harness is only $350 that hooks to the ecu and engine.  Very easy.  The throttle by wire I am not familiar with?

Never mind,I just need to open my eyes. LOL!! They are made from polyurethane and unless they are lubed,they will squeak like a mofo and wear out. If they were made from delrin/nylatron/something similar I would definitely agree with fast. I would hesitate to use PU for our application.

so you don't think poly would last?

Yes, I made the entire front of the car, and suspension. I am surprised that the spindles look weak. They are very heavy duty. I will get  close up pics and post. The shafts are actually 4340 annealed material, full diameter entire length, gusseted through the 1/4" thick body. I built and installed bronze hubs into those wheels, to use large diameter bearings.No offense taken. I did put the tie rod mounts at a wrong angle, though. I couldn't fix, though, because they are actually fitted through the entire body, which attaches to the shaft, also. I already had about a zillion hours in them, so still use them. Yes, irs is the whole purpose of the multi link suspension. But I have the challenge of fitting axles to the Subaru trans.

i guess i should've said the spindle stubs look weak as they appear to be link pin and but welded. 4340 annealed, passed through and gusseted def is stronger than the stock mild steel hardened spindle stubs some places use. i run combo link myself as i did bend a link pin spindle once years ago. as a result i went to 4130 link pin spindle stubs and never had an issue again. i am now using 4130 combo link for the bigger dia stub and larger bearings just to be safe.

if you got the tie rod mounts in the wrong location can you move the rack?   i have heard some real good info on the subaru trans so this conversion will be interesting to see unfold! i too ride at LS a couple times a year. we go earlier in the week (more vacant) and leave sat morning as to avoid all the little kids and nut jobs. i am a 7.5 hr drive north of the dunes so cannot make it a weekend trip lol  :D
