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" high quality parts "
The bushings were easy to install in the the old 1995 Ford Escort control arms, saving me time but mostly\na lot of money which I would have had to pay a shop to do the work which I did in my yard with minimal tools.\nThe steering is, of course, is free of the slop caused by the worn bushings so my car is more fun to drive.verified_user Verified Buyer - jon a. larsen - .

starstarstarstarstar" Good stuff! "
I intended to install these bushings for a while and finally did. The final result is much better than I expected, but just what I wanted. The front of my Mazda MX-3 is tight and responsive, with a better-than-new feel. Quite a contrast to the 20 year-old original bushings. I do have a couple of comments: The instructions are very generic. I had to call tech support to determine which way the bushing is installed, and where the washers are located. Their response made the whole job a piece of cake; both bushing flanges go toward the front of the car and the large washer installs in front of the rear bushing (on the LCA shaft.) One of the stock washers installs in back of the rear bushing. These bushings seem to require ZX-2 rear bushing housings - none of the other 3 or 4 Mazda/Ford housings are the right I.D. Just press the rear bushings in with a vise; the front bushings install by hand. be sure to remove the old bushings by heating the outer shell - don't burn the rubber! Just get the housing very hot , then knock the center out with a socket on an extension and a hammer. Clean up the inside with emery cloth after it cools and you're ready to install. Thanks to the Energy Suspension guys, I'm a happy camper!verified_user Verified Buyer - Stephen R. Seiter - . Energy Suspension 4.3152 - 5 out of 5
