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" Quality materials "
There is no how to videos for track bar installation, directions arent very descriptive. Editors note: The instructions would have been better if they were actual pictures of the suspension parts. Energy is working on making their instructions better. \nverified_user Verified Buyer - Pete - . Energy Suspension 3.3194 - 5 out of 5

starstar_borderstar_borderstar_borderstar_border" Decent kit "
This is a pretty decent kit for the rear end. It really cleaned up the sloppy handling and smoothed the ride out on my 185k mile truck. The reason for my lower rating is that while I got the right bushings, I did not get enough sleeves, nor did I get the correct size of sleeve. I did not discover this until the truck was already in the air and the entire suspension tore apart and the old bushings burned off as stated in the instructions. The company sent me the correct bushing sleeves. Kudos for fixing the problem, but now in order for me to fix it right, I have to do the complete install over again.verified_user Verified Buyer - Steve Glass - .

starstarstarstarstar" Very nice product "
My 2007 Tahoe has just under 100k. I was hearing some thumping in the rear when going over bumps, and just figured it was time to replace all the bushings in the rear. Thumping went away, ride is outstanding, and I got a huge bonus: My steering has been squirrely at highway speeds for quite some time. Had the alignment shop look it over, and all was well up front. Low and behold, when I replaced the rear bushings, the steering issues resolved! \n\nThis is a nice kit. High quality stuff. Instructions seemed sparse when I first read them, but they turned out to have all the info I needed. I used a torch to heat the old bushings and a small shop press to push them out. You could also easily use a ball joint press (loaner from OReilly or AutoZone) to do the same. I tip I found online which worked well for me was to put all the bushings in the freezer for a few hours before starting the project. Makes them shrink a little, and slide in easier. Also, get yourself some small wire brushes and/or sandpaper flap wheels for your drill to use for cleaning out the bushing shells. All in all, a FUN project with GREAT results!!verified_user Verified Buyer - Ron - . Energy Suspension 3.3194 - 5 out of 5
