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.

Energy Suspension Control Arm Bushing

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" Great Bushing Kit "

No Problem at all! Used these on my 1975 GMC FWD Motorhome. The bushings fit perfectly into the existing outer sleeves, and the new inner sleeves were easy to install too! The original metal end caps fit perfectly into the new inner sleeves. The ride is smooth, maybe a tad more road feel than rubber bushings but, these will last forever, and they are WAY easier to install! No press needed! Would highly recommend these bushings!

starstarstarstarstar" Very Good "

I installed the urethane lower and upper control arm bushings in my 76 gmc motorhome. Installation wasnt bad but a challenge. I was doing it in the driveway while temps were in the 90s. Burning the old ones out on a hot day is an effort. The bushings stiffened up the ride and the handling. I am now working on correct alignment so after that is completed, I should have a better idea of how well the urethane bushings work. <br />
