Energy Suspension 8.10101



5 out of 5 based on 18 user reviews. Write a Review

Installed these this weekend & these bushings do a good job of firming everything up once installed. As the other reviews mention, be sure to have a good 9/16 metal drilling bit on hand for the center bushing sleeve before trying to install, or be prepared for some cussing & time wasted trying to make it work. Most bit sets have a 1/2 bit as the largest, and Lowes was out of single 9/16 bits (at $15.99, by the way), so spent lots of time trying to ream out with my existing 1/2 bit & a round file.\n\nSince lots of people have pointed out this issue, it is surprising that Energy Suspension hasnt just found the correct sized sleeve to include in the kit!
4 out of 5 - Great except for sleeve size

My original bushing were breaking apart. Order this kit. The R&R would have gone fine but the long sleeve was the wrong size and the short one needed to be reamed. Expected I needed to ream the short sleeve cause every forum chat room had this pointed out about this kit. The long sleeve is what was a surprise. Emailed the supplier with a pic of long sleeve with a caliper on it showing the length. They sent me the right one. Yes my steering was apart and need to get my truck drivable so I cut the vulcanized rubber off my old long sleeve. Use it in the new urethane bushing. Extra time but the job got done. Noticed a tighter and more solid feel to steering. No slopp.
5 out of 5 - Good upgrade
Stewart Miyamoto - . Energy Suspension 8.10101
The bushings are very well constructed and were easy to install. I would recommend this product for anyone who has issues with a loose steering rack or just wants to update from old stock rubber bushings.
5 out of 5 - Very happy with product
Emmanuel Chavez - . Energy Suspension 8.10101
The bushings went in good with a little finesse and I was so happy to regain that tight steering feel again.
5 out of 5 - Fast shipping, great parts at a sweet price
Lynn Bailey - . Energy Suspension 8.10101
Installed these steering rack bushings along with new sway bar bushings and what a difference it made on my 96 Tacoma! No more loose, sloppy steering, almost like new. Also eliminated the vibration I was getting from the front when braking. Great product, fast shipping, just wish I would have done these sooner!
5 out of 5 - Awesome!

Fast shipping !!! Great parts fit perfect truck feels much better!
5 out of 5 - Nice fitment
joel alexandra - . Energy Suspension 8.10101
Everything was great except for the 2 different size sleeves. One was way too big and the other too small. I wound up having to drill out the smaller sleeve to make it work. This wasn't much of an issue as I have a drill press but I could see it being a bigger problem for those without the proper equipment. In the end I am happy with no complaints.
4 out of 5 - Parts are high quality
Timothy Wade - . Energy Suspension 8.10101
I installed them for a customer. I asked how it worked out for him, he replied. It drives so much better he could not believe how bad the old ones were.
5 out of 5 - exact fit
Dean Jackson - . Energy Suspension 8.10101
This kit was easy to install and after installation provided for a good feel with the steering. I did the front control arms at the same time. The only problem and the reason I did not give it 5 stars is one of the medal sleeves inside diameter was too small so I had to drill it out with a 9/16 Inch for the factory bolt to fit through. I did not have one on hand so I had to go out and purchase the drill bit. Otherwise good fit and easy install.
3 out of 5 - Good fit except for....
David Shaw - . Energy Suspension 8.10101
This stuff is really well done and inexpensive too! I'd recommend this to anyone. The Tacoma comes with pretty lousy set of bushings on the steering rack. After a while it's obvious that you need to replace the bushings as the whole rack moves about when you're steering. But what you should be concerned about is that mechanics will tell you your rack is bad when all you need are these simple bushings from Energy. Just do it. The install is easy but time consuming. Thanks Energy Suspension for offering this!
5 out of 5 - better than factory!!

This is a relatively quick and easy way to get some of that "new-car" feel back in your steering. The kit comes with all the bushings needed to redo the steering rack. Installs in about an hour.
5 out of 5 - Cant go wrong, especially at this price!
David Pick - . Energy Suspension 8.10101
Our shop has been using these bushing kits for years now.Toyota has a problem in this area thru their product line that has this type of steering rack. The kit fixes the problem. The stock rubber set up over time will just not support the rack from moving in normal conditions. The energy suspension kit is rock solid - no movement all though it can be difficult to install at only one point the center support bushing but we have a good system for getting thru the process. We have used a prothane kit a couple of times but it did not come with the large washer which is needed because the stock rubber piece has the washer built in to the piece. I called prothane and informed them about this issue and hopefully they added it to there kit. Good product i hope this info helps. Thanks Rick!
