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.

Energy Suspension Control Arm Bushing

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" I think it will work "

We had to mount the vertical set upside down ! The shape of the vertical bushing in my PT Cruiser lower control arm did not allow to mount part # 3406 ( bush with the overlapping dust cover ) at the top. The part would be heavily deformed. So we mounted everything upside down. The position of the control arm with regard to the chassis remains the same. The car drives nicely. With less overlap of the mounting could be performed as indicated in the leaflet. Editors Note: The instructions are very specific regarding the installation. See the installation instructions for kit 5.3129 for the correct procedure.

starstarstarstarstar" high quality, perfect fit "

I bought the bushing kit because my tire installer recommended I replace my control arms, I figured the control arm itself isnt bad, it has to be the bushings. I am happy to say, these went in without a hitch and the feel of my ride is better than when the car was brand-new.
