HyperFlex Control Arm Bushings
A control arm bushing plays a vital role in a suspension. Replace that faulty O.E. rubber bushing with an Energy Suspension Hyperflex control arm bushing. These polyurethane bushings provide the longevity and performance needed to maximize a suspension's efficiency. Energy Suspension's Hyperflex polyurethane is a firmer bushing than the O.E. Not only does this increase the longevity of the bushing but gives the suspension a boost in handling performance. With a firmer bushing, there will be a slight increase in NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness), but most drivers prefer the boost in performance in spite of that.
The Faulty O.E.
As your suspension travels, a rubber control arm bushing is repeatedly stretching and flexing. After a while, the center sleeve begins to sag and your suspension alignment is throw out of whack. The sagging will go on until the rubber fails completely.
Be sure to use Formula 5
A control arm bushing rotates a lot against the metal shell, so make sure you grease it well with Energy Suspension's own Formula 5 Bushing Lubricant. Using plenty of grease is the best way to ensure a long lasting part without any squeaking. If you'd like some extra grease just in case, pick up an extra 3 pack or an 8 ounce tube.

As of right now no issues.verified_user Verified Buyer - Spencer Wright - . Energy Suspension 16.3116 - 5 out of 5
starstarstarstarstar" Good "
So far real good. Have not aligned my car yet but the previous bushings were not in parts yet, just worn. Much easier to get these installed then removing the original bushings.verified_user Verified Buyer - Kenneth Krafft - . Energy Suspension 16.3116 - 5 out of 5

Great stuff at a great price and better quality over the oem ones, which seems to break . You could feel the stiffness as soon as you install them and like everyone else says lube them as much as possible.verified_user Verified Buyer - Edward Ramirez - . Energy Suspension 16.3116 - 5 out of 5
