1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler TJ | Front Control Arm Bushings
Energy Suspension's polyurethane front control arm bushings for the 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler TJ will replace rubber bushings that will eventually degrade and cause alignment problems and tire wear. If you want to toughen up your Jeep and make the suspension and alignment more stable over all, then upgrading to more durable control arm bushings is a good bet.
Rubber Bushings Wear Down
If your Jeep is a daily driver then the rubber bushings on the front control arm could last a while, but if you drive aggressively or over rough terrain then that rubber is flexing and bending to an extreme that wears them down at an accelerated rate until they are ineffective or destroyed. This can cause alignment issues that can be problematic for straight line tracking or wear down expensive tires unevenly, cutting their lifespan short.
Tougher Bushings for your Jeep
Polyurethane is much more durable than rubber and does not flex to the extent that rubber does, meaning that extreme suspension travel will not change the shape of polyurethane bushings like rubber. When the control arm bushings hold their shape then your wheel alignment is more stable which is good for handling and tire wear. Besides the performance benefits poly bushings also just last a lot longer than rubber meaning you likely won't need to replace them for the life of the vehicle.
So if you want to upgrade performance and longevity of your Jeep then these front control arm bushings from Energy Suspension are a good investment.
