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" Very High Quality bushings. "

I own 2 1967 Pontiac GTOS and they both have the Energy suspension bushings installed in the front and the rear suspension. Both cars handling improved drastically and the steering is so much more responsive. These bushings are a must if you want these older cars to handle better and the rubber bushings are just not doing the job. Thank you for a great product. Regards, Paul van Hoek

Question:
Will the 3.3172 fit on my 66 GTO?
Answer:
No, Unfortunately the 3.3172 kit is only fitted for the 67-72 GTO.

Question:
On part 3.3172 for a 1972 Chevelle are they polyurethane a good stable part? I heard that rubber bushings are better for the Chevelle then polyurethane because they become hard and brittle and doesn't allow the rear end to articulate and then makes the car unstable and it wanders all over. And with over 600 horsepower that's the last thing I want to happen to me and my wife to be upside down in the car.
