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.

starstarstarstarstar" Excellent product "
Customer service, product quality and installation instructions were excellent. \nIn the absence of access to a press or other dedicated equipment for removal of the control arm bushings, I found a simple technique was to use a drill and hole saw a little smaller than the ID of the metal shell, to cut the center out of the bushing. The residual old rubber was easily peeled off the steel shell (which was left undamaged if reuse was intended). The steel shell was then easily removed using a hammer and bushing driver..verified_user Verified Buyer - Daniel Blum - . Energy Suspension 3.3160 - 5 out of 5

Perfect, that is the only way I describe the fittment of these bushings. After removing my old ones and doing a little clean up of the control arms, these pressed right in place. The only thing that I feel is needed with the package is installation instructions or a part discriptor. I had two o-rings and four steel washers that didn't seem to go anywhere. After contacting Energy Suspension (because my application was not listed in their PDF file) there was a guide at my door in three days. These people, have answered in a timely fasion, every email I have sent to them before and after the sale!verified_user Verified Buyer - Ron Romeyn - . Energy Suspension 3.3160 - 5 out of 5
question_answer Customer Questions and Answers
- I got a control arm bushing kit I was wondering what the bushing with the 3241 on it is for does not show it in the instruction thank you for the help.
- The 3241 is a thrust washer that goes on the lower control arm bushing on the small end away from the flange. This keeps the control arm from twisting.
