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.

starstarstarstar_borderstar_border" Review 2 Years Later "
The factory type suck. These were a little better. This is not a performance car so I was just hoping these would last longer. They did last a little longer but not much. They are no longer in the car, they wore out and I replaced them with the cheapest ones I could find, well see how long they last. It cant be much worse the good ones.verified_user Verified Buyer - Ross H. Phipps - . Energy Suspension 5.3123 - 3 out of 5
starstarstarstarstar" Very Good "
We installed the bushings without any problems. We noted that while the cars wheels were hanging, the horizontal bushings would pop out of the control arm. When the car was placed back on the ground however, the bushings would move back into place. Beyond that, the ride has been tremendously improved.verified_user Verified Buyer - Conrad Forster - .

starstarstarstarstar" Good product and improved design over factory "
This kit was fine for what I needed. It would benefit from a new sleeve for the vertical bushing and a vent hole in the middle ring to allow air to escape during assembly.verified_user Verified Buyer - Walter Fisher - . Energy Suspension 5.3123 - 5 out of 5
I have used energy suspension bushings on three of my vehicles and they have saved me a lot of money and have worked well.verified_user Verified Buyer - Dietrich Schellenberg - . Energy Suspension 5.3123 - 5 out of 5
