Energy Suspension 4.18117

4 out of 5 based on 6 user reviews. Write a Review

Overall, its a solid kit. One gross oversight in the front lower control arm bushings - it should have been a 2 piece bushings with flanges on both ends. Unfortunately the kit requires you to reuse part of the OEM rubber bushing, its like a big rubber washer and its likely dry rotted and is unuseable. The part is discontinued from Ford, so good luck finding one. Energy Suspension was of no help in figuring out what to do. Without some form of flange to restrict movement, the bushing is free to move forward and back on the sleeve roughly 1/4 inch unimpeded. You will need to fabricate a total of 4 pieces that will cover the exposed portion of the sleeve to limit/restrict this movement. Ill be using Delrin sheet stock to make the appropriate "washers" 2 at 1/4 inch thick and 2 at 3/8 inch thick and a hole saw to cut them out. Why couldnt these guys design it right when they made it rather than relying on Fords design.
3 out of 5 - The parts overall appear to be of good quality, installation instructions are vague at best.

The bushings them selfs are holding up. The links where too too tall, had to shave down spacer for sway bar..over good product

My car has been driving great, the bushings gave my car a "european" stiffness, it feels nice. The bushings were coupled with "premium" struts, but not super high performance. I highly reccomend these to anyone....... P.S. I used hammers and muscle to install these, trust me, use a press.

This is one of the best upgrades you can do for the money and you will see what I mean when you get the old bushings out. And the ride quality after the install is dramatic it feels like a different car. You do have to do some slight mods to the sway bar bushings that mount to the frame but nothing a drill wont fix. They were much easier to install than I thought it only took me about 4.5 hours but I was using a lift. Bottom line if you are looking to replace your oem bushings these are the ones to do it with. Great product and fast shipping.
5 out of 5 - Great!

What led me to install these bushings was sloppy steering, ghost steering on the highway (control arm bushings moving causing car to shift directions while driving. Very dangerous!), and a general sloppy feeling to the suspension. The bushings took a long time to install and you should definitely have at least one person helping with this install if you're not gonna take it to a shop. The first day of installation I only got the rear sway bar bushings, links, and lateral links in and that made a world of difference already. I couldn't wait to get the front done as soon as possible!! The next weekend I did the steering bushings and those were a **** to get on, but were worth all the effort as my steering control went from night to day. The rest of the bushings (control arm, front sway bar) went on the following weekend and man it has really made a difference. I did not get a chance to use the shifter bushings as I drive an Automatic but hopefully one day Ill swap to a Manual and get a chance to use them! Great Product if you are on the edge of buying these or not I'd say go for it! One of the best mods for the price!
5 out of 5 - Great Product

I had my garage put in all the pieces that were required and the project went very well. I am driving the car on occasion and with these ( and some other) suspension components it handles like new. "Just what I wanted"!
5 out of 5 - Excellent
