Energy Suspension HyperFlex Package Kit

Thinking about changing a bushing? Why not replace them all? Energy Suspension Master Kits include the bushings you need to completely revamp your suspension. Positions and parts vary from vehicle to vehicle, but each package contains the bushings that Energy Suspension offers.

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. Replacing the entirety of your suspension bushings maximizes your handling and ensures it stays that way for a long time.

Energy Hyperflex Master Kit Rubber

Replacing the Faulty Rubber

O.E. Manufacturer's use of soft rubber bushings when making a car. This is great for dampening noise and vibrations, but not so great for performance or longevity. Once the rubber fails, that quiet and smooth ride will fail as well. Rubber is prone to failure due to wear and tear, UV rays, road grimes, and vehicle oils.

Be sure to use Formula 5

This Package will come with plenty of 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. So be sure to use more than enough lubricant when upgrading your suspension bushings. If you'd like some extra grease just in case, pick up an extra 3 pack or an 8 ounce tube.

starstarstarstar_borderstar_border" The parts overall appear to be of good quality, installation instructions are vague at best. "

Overall, its a solid kit. One gross oversight in the front lower control arm bushings - it should have been a 2 piece bushings with flanges on both ends. Unfortunately the kit requires you to reuse part of the OEM rubber bushing, its like a big rubber washer and its likely dry rotted and is unuseable. The part is discontinued from Ford, so good luck finding one. Energy Suspension was of no help in figuring out what to do. Without some form of flange to restrict movement, the bushing is free to move forward and back on the sleeve roughly 1/4 inch unimpeded. You will need to fabricate a total of 4 pieces that will cover the exposed portion of the sleeve to limit/restrict this movement. Ill be using Delrin sheet stock to make the appropriate "washers" 2 at 1/4 inch thick and 2 at 3/8 inch thick and a hole saw to cut them out. Why couldnt these guys design it right when they made it rather than relying on Fords design.

My car has been driving great, the bushings gave my car a "european" stiffness, it feels nice. The bushings were coupled with "premium" struts, but not super high performance. I highly reccomend these to anyone....... P.S. I used hammers and muscle to install these, trust me, use a press.

starstarstarstarstar" Great! "

This is one of the best upgrades you can do for the money and you will see what I mean when you get the old bushings out. And the ride quality after the install is dramatic it feels like a different car. You do have to do some slight mods to the sway bar bushings that mount to the frame but nothing a drill wont fix. They were much easier to install than I thought it only took me about 4.5 hours but I was using a lift. Bottom line if you are looking to replace your oem bushings these are the ones to do it with. Great product and fast shipping.
