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.

Energy Suspension 5.3124
starstarstarstarstar" Great ! "
My truck had 240k miles when I rebuilt the front end. New bushings, shocks, springs, tierods, bearings, rotors, pads, bump stops (overloads) everything but ball joints (done the year before). The feel is incredible now. No more wandering, reduced oversteer, no dipping in turns. It is like a driving a new truck. Thanks for your help.verified_user Verified Buyer - Mark Kastilahn - .

Everything installed normally. Note: your information did not specifically state that use of the special grease will keep the bushings from squeaking. I had purchased the container of grease because it made sense to use the grease to prevent wear. Other DIY folks told me not to buy your product because it will begin to squeak after a short period of time. The individual I spoke with did not know about, nor use the grease. Of course, it has been approximately 1.5 years, and no perceptible squeaking, to-date. I am watching and listening.... Editors Notes: Using poly urethane bushings it is best to use the proper amount and kind of grease. This prevents them from squeaking and drying out causing premature wear.verified_user Verified Buyer - James Arnold - . Energy Suspension 5.3124 - 5 out of 5
starstarstarstarstar" good product! "
These bushings were a great replacement for my control arms and far more superior compared to the factory ones. They were a major pain to replace, so if anyone isnt experienced or doesnt have the proper tools then they shouldnt attempt it, but after I got it done it was well worth it. Thanks guys!verified_user Verified Buyer - Justin Robert Smith - . Energy Suspension 5.3124 - 5 out of 5

After suffering for some time with a wondering truck and noisy control arm bushings, I took the plunge and decided to change them out. The Energy Suspension bushings were easy to work with, have resolved all my issues, and the truck is back to being a pleasure to drive. This is an excellent product!verified_user Verified Buyer - Larry LeForte - . Energy Suspension 5.3124 - 5 out of 5
