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" Perfect fit "
Dramatically improved steering and ride quality (transformed 14 year old vehicle into new ride quality).verified_user Verified Buyer - EarlBryner - . Energy Suspension 5.3131 - 5 out of 5
starstarstarstarstar_border" Good Product, But..... "
The part #/ application was wrong (too big) for my 99 Ram 1500 4wd. Called and they sent me part #5.3120 which fit perfectly. Took 8 hrs. with a hoist and press. hard part was pressing old bushing out without damaging arms. Worth the effort,big improvement on steering and handling. Don not try it with out a press. Buying new arms with bushings installed may be worth the extra money.verified_user Verified Buyer - joe - . Energy Suspension 5.3131 - 4 out of 5

The Installation was easy. My front end is now solid. This was the final fix to my steering issues. The only hitch was a rusted cam bolt. A 5" cut off blade took care of that.verified_user Verified Buyer - Norman K Enlow - . Energy Suspension 5.3131 - 5 out of 5
