The theory behind it seems sound.
Let us know if you can feel a difference.

I already tried. The app isn't picking up the Japanese text. :/

Maybe HIRO will notice this thread?

The pictures are actually decent. I mean, there are only so many places where these can go, right....

Yes I get that and said it above. However they are all DIFFERENT SIZES, and go to different places on the subframe as shown in the pictures.... almost. The pictures are showing LOCATIONS, but not WHICH SIZE BUSHINGS GO WHERE.

Maybe try emailing Spoon, and ask them if they can send the instructions in English.

I got you covered.

may have to remove rear tire, undercover, sidecover, etc. gazette plate bolt? (blue circle), types of wiring connector, clamp, hose bolt, levelizer, etc. other necessary parts to remove
1. loosen R-1/R-2 bolts, lower the subframe 20-25mm
2. put the grease on the rigid collar, and insert it according to the illustration
*for safety do it one by one
*"special bolt" so lightly tap from the bottom when inserting
*Select an appropriate rigid collar based on the lower hole in the F1 area
*the size of the lower hole
3. keep the flatness/curveness?? of the subframe at a certain level and pre-tighten the bolt little by little
*do not use air tool
4. check that the bolted part is completely lifted, tighten with the proper torque
5. put back everything

My shop did these for me when I still had my C63. Wasn't too difficult to do, just very annoying to do.

Did I notice a huge difference? I don't think I did. But, it didn't cost a lot, happy to give it a try.

THAT is one of the reasons why I love this forum, ask and ye shall receive!!!!

for future reference in regards to translation.....if you've got something that Google can't work out for you and you need something off the wall translated try taking it by one of your local State Agency Offices(Child Support,DFCAS,Dept of Corrections,***Dept of Labor***)....MOST State Agencies are required by statute to have translation services available to the general public... With my former agency we had access to every recognized language on the planet either via 24hr phone or direct reply email if you needed a document translated.....they are only required by statute to provide this service for customers BUT most places would take the goodwill step to help you out if asked.....just an fyi

Hmmm, I'm thinking about using these on my Trans AM to mount the front K-member to the chassis.

No English instructions, but received some additional pictures which should help. Between these, the pics the kit came with, and the translation above, I think I'll be ok. Thanks again.

Not going to get a chance to install until early April. Waiting on coilovers and KMac bushings still. Will do all at once.
