5 out of 5 based on 81 user reviews. Write a Review

I am highly satisfied with these bushings. Hardest part was removing the old ones. New ones slip right in with a little grease. Took an hour to remove and about 10 minutes to grease and install the new ones. No squeaks, very tight, and was able to leave the tie rods attached to the hub.
5 out of 5 - Great Bushings, easy to replace. Highly Recommended!

If I knew how much it would tighten and how much more responsive the steering would be I would have done this the week after I purchased the truck when it was brand new.

Great seller- ships quickly- quality part arrived in excellent condition the next morning- couldnt be more pleased. Price was very reasonable and had the part installed by the dealer saving me hundreds over what they originally wanted to charge- thank you.

C Beede - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Installed the bushings and everything fit perfectly. My original washer diameter for the VZJ95 prados was about 2mm bigger than one provided but there was no problem. These are great parts and my car has been driving well on the road for 2 weeks with no problems at all. Thanks a lot for the superb bushings. Baits Botswana, Africa
5 out of 5 - Very good bushings - I give them 5 stars rating

edwin colon - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Steering feels more stable, no more wandering. I replaced them while doing the bushings for the front suspention tables. I used a C clamp to pop the old ones out and to press the new ones in.

Dany Coulombe - . Energy Suspension 8.10103

5 out of 5 - Excellent Product
Jason - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
I installed the bushing set a couple days after I recieved it. They went right in with the help of a lot of silicon spray. My steering was highly improved compared to the worn out oem bushings.
5 out of 5 - Heavy duty solid components.
Jose Valero - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
I am impressed for your company to reach out to me after 1 year and check up. The steering rack bushing kit installed great and is working better than O.E. Really happy with your product, Thank you.

Initial fit and finish were great, they seem to have gained a bit of slop though after 2 years of use however even after torqueing all bolts again.

Although the installation was more challenging than expected, I was more than pleased with the quality and fit of the bushings. My old bushings were shot, period. I recommend to anyone with these trucks to replace these ASAP.

Michael Collins - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
I was lucky enough to find these bushings for my 2002 Tacoma, after the Toyota dealer told me I would have to buy a whole new rack – five or $600! :-(\nMy mechanic had minimal difficulty getting them in, and they seem to be high-quality material. Very pleased. Good service ordering from this company also.
5 out of 5 - Very positive
Kent Knisley - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Awesome product. I had a creak in my rack and pinion and it went away after installation!

Very good parts that are direct replacement for old rubber bushings. Tightened up some of the play in the steering.

The parts showed up in a short time. I installed them in my Toyota Truck. Fit just like the original parts.

Ron Wakefield - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
For first impressions the red is really cool! I. Was even more pleased with the parts being clean cut and "easy" to install. Easy as in once you get the rack free the new bushing went right in! The steering is more firm and responsive and the new bushing should out last the factor! Very pleased!
5 out of 5 - Great product!
Sean Speckels - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
What a great and inexpensive at to improve the steering on your vehicle. Highly suggested upgrade.

benjamin n sherman - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
A little difficult getting old bushing out. New bushings went in quick and easy. Had a little trouble getting rack to line up with bushing mounts. An extra pair of hand would solve that. Over all a simple swap. Truck feels and steers much better. Instructions were wrong, asking for washer to go between bushing and crossmember. Washer would not physically fit where instructed to go.
5 out of 5 - Good quality products
David Puga - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Love this bushing kit! Is much better than the OEM rubber bushings and were much easier to install, too. These will last much longer than the OEM bushings and I could tell that the tightness in the steering was much post-install. Great customer service from www.aftermarketsuspensionparts.com and will shop here again!\n
5 out of 5 - Great!
Jacob Wilkie - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
The energy bushings tightened up the used steering rack that i installed in my 4runner, making it feel like a new rack was installed. Great product at a reasonable price.

Baitsholedi Thutoemang - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Typical to the 4runner, I was experiencing some steering travel and shake at highway speeds. After searching online and finding some guides on the replacement I placed the order. The shipping was fast and the install was easy. I did not need any special tools as some guides list. The hardest part was getting the old bushings out. This made a significant difference in steering. There is still a minor shake but its attributed to road conditions and typical truck suspension.
5 out of 5 - Awesome improvement!
Scott Moore - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
After replacing my steering rack bushings I noticed that my steering has more response and control. This is overall a great product!
5 out of 5 - Great product.
Kristian Ubias - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
My local mechanic got these installed in about 30 minutes and it really improved my steering. This is a great product!
5 out of 5 - GREAT PRODUCT....FITS PERFECT
Bo Yang - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Removing the old bushings was a challenge, since they were stuck in there so well. Here's the secret: use a C clamp to push out the old bushings!! That made it so easy! Nothing else worked, including using a hammer. The new parts seem to work well. I'm curious to find out how long they last.
5 out of 5 - Excellent
Andrew Bares - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Parts were received fast, fit perfect, and installation was very easy.

Charles Gunn - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Worn stock bushings were ruining the drive of my truck. I ordered the steering rack bushing kit from Energy Suspension hoping polyurethane would be stiffer than stock and help with my lifted application. The results are fantastic. There is no wandering while at freeway speeds, and slow speed turns feel more precise and solid. Great product, I'll be back for the upper and lower control arm kit soon.
5 out of 5 - Very nice product.
Geoff Hilgemann - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Great improvement to the worn out stock parts, at a really good price.
5 out of 5 - Great kit!
Richard Shuttlesworth - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Received the parts very quickly and great communication from the company via email. The parts were easy to install and were a perfect fit. After a quick alignment my steering wheel was perfectly aligned again. Great product at a great price.
5 out of 5 - Great product, fast shipping
Jacque - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Installed in 2 hour after work. Left the rack attached but did lift pass side tire off the ground. Only issue was supplied washer didn't fit past the threaded part of the supplied bolt. Factory washer did not problems. Factory bushings came out easy. New ones required a c-clamp to get back in. Over all good. I can believe Toyota doesn't offer replacement parts?
5 out of 5 - Tighter steering Good
jcl - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Replaced the rack bushings, the truck now turns without a problem like new. Getting the old parts was definitely a challenge but well worth it. The hardest part was trying to loosen the center and the passenger bolts I almost gave up but after using a cheater bar they loosened up, highly recommend these bushings for anyone who owns an older 4runner mine is a 97 with 237000 miles and still runs great.
5 out of 5 - Excellent replacement parts
Thomas Evgeniadis - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Very nice fit, exact replacement of the OEM. Much better handling.
5 out of 5 - Nice product
Roger Hutcheon - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Everything fit perfect. Tightened up the steering nicely. Highly recommend this little upgrade. You don't have to take off any tierod ends as long as yours wheels are off ground you can move the rack back enough. Hardest part is getting the old rubber junk out.
5 out of 5 - nice product
Chuck Bennett - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
a set of instructions would help. Do you recommend disconnecting the power steering connections? I did it without disconnecting the PS tubes, but that may have made it harder. Removing the old bushings was difficult, suggestions would help. I'm looking forward to seeing how they hold up. The bushings fixed the steering wobble I was having.
5 out of 5 - good product
Stuart Pearce - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
The bushings were easy to install. Would have been easier had we used a lift versus floor jacks and stands. It was a 2 man operation but overall it was a 2 hour procedure but saved me hundreds of dollars by doing it myself. Bushings seem to be good quality and will last the remaining life of my pickup.
5 out of 5 - excellent
Tom Wall - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Great product. Easy install. Had ordered wrong part accidentally at first- customer service was great and super helpful. Would recommend to anyone
5 out of 5 - Excellent
Colleen Mccolgan - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
I received my parts very quickly and they fit perfectly. I had read several blogs about concerns of squeaking so I used anti-seize. Although I only have a hours drive time on them, I haven't had any problems.

Eric Seckinger - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
I had a loosely mounted rack on a 1999 4Runner. These worked perfectly and saved a minimum of $600 as all the dealers were saying you cannot get rack and pinion bushings without buying the rack (they are pressed in). In fact they are NOT pressed in. You just need some silicone lube and 10 minutes to get all three mount bushings in. In 1 hour the rack was unmounted, bushings installed, and remounted. Rack is "tight" now.
5 out of 5 - Great Fit - Great Price - Rack is Tight (Saved $600)
Todd Martens - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Tightened my steering rack right up.
5 out of 5 - Great product
Jay Hancock - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Worked great, made a big big difference in the overall handling. Now I'm going to replace all of the bushings in the whole truck..
5 out of 5 - great product
Allan Blankenbaker - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
Before installing this part, the steering on my truck felt unresponsive and sloppy. I thought maybe my power steering belt needed to be adjusted. Installing this part made a night and day difference. Huge improvement over the stock rubber bushings and worth every penny! Due to age, the factory rubber bushings will eventually fail. If you are having the same symptoms, I'd definitely recommend installing this part before anything else. Installation was easier than I thought. Make sure you have c-clamps readily available.
5 out of 5 - Huge improvement and well worth it!
Mike - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
The only thing was the washer that comes in the kit had the incorrect I.D. but the kit installed easy with no other issues.
5 out of 5 - good
Duane Schneible - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
I researched bushing on line prior to my purchase and continually found that the Energy Suspension Products had the best ratings. The Energy Suspension bushings were easy to install and there were no problems. I would highly recommend Energy Suspension Products. In addition, I could not get these products locally (Calgary, Alberta, Canada) so I ordered them online. The online service was fantastic. The product shipped quickly and I was provided with excellent email notification.
5 out of 5 - Excellent Product
MARK EHRMANTRAUT - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
They fit well and tightened my steering but removing the original bushings can be a challenge
4 out of 5 - very satified
COREY NIMMO - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
The parts went in great. The old bushings were certainly ready to be replaced. I hoped this would stop some of the well known Tacoma side stepping but it didn't. I was told by a service adviser that they all do it. Your parts were great- thanks, Scott
5 out of 5 - Very satisfied
Scott Hiller - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
I needed to replace these bushings because the material of the originals broke down after 182000 miles on the truck. I noticed a big improvement in the free play in the steering wheel.

I use energy on my Honda's, it brings the new feeling back. I purchased this set for the steering rack on my Tacoma and I couldn't be happier with the product and ease of installation.
5 out of 5 - GREAT!
Evan R Crabtree - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
It works very well. The hardest thing was to remove the old one, but if you put oil or lubricant to the old one it is a lot easier to remove. There is a big difference with the new one and I'm glade I've changed the stock bushing, they were too soft.
5 out of 5 - very goog

Anthony Logan - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
1st off - a bit of history... Local independent shop that Id been taking my daughters 00 Tacoma to for years said "The Tacoma needed new rack bushings, but that racks have always started leaking after they replaced the bushings, and that I should just replace the rack for ~$800." My BS meter pegged and after doing some online research, found you guys linked in a replacement how-to. Got the parts, and, knowing just enough to be dangerous, it took me a grand total of 45 minutes to replace the rack bushings and the sway bar bushings - $50 vs: $800 - Sweet! I have since found a new mechanic... This is a GREAT product - much, much better than the OEM part. Highly recommended.
5 out of 5 - Exceeded Expectations!

Gregory Moore - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
The instructions included were not very helpful, but thanks to the Internet, they didn't need to be. All the parts fit perfectly and it definitely tightened up my steering and replaced a common wear point. The installation doesn't require a large amount of knowledge and skill, just a lot of patience. I put the bushings in and then C-clamped the pinions in place (tight fit). The set is well worth the buy and you do not need to drill out anything.
5 out of 5 - Everything worked great
Andrew Coles - . Energy Suspension 8.10103
<p>These bushings fit perfectly in the 2004 Toyota Tacoma and were relatively easy to install, but there is just one problem: the kit does not include a washer needed for the driver's side large bushing. The installation instructions that come with the Energy Suspension kit, PN 8.10103G, list the washer on the contents list, but it is not included. When the old large bushing is removed, it has a washer attached to it on the front side of the bushing. This washer cannot be removed or reused. So half-way through the installation, off we went to find another washer. Even though we found a washer at Lowe's that is similar, the diameter of the inside of the washer is too big. So for now I am using this incorrect washer until I can locate the correct washer.</p><p>Overall, this is a great kit but be suere to get the washer before you start the work.</p>
