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" Way better than the Prothane kit "
Had to order this kit because the Prothane kit is designed for Eclipse built in 2000 only and doesn't include the sleeve needed for the later years nor washers to go on either end of the bushings. If you can manage to get the factory sleeve out of the later arms without damaging them you can use the Prothane kit just fine, but the Energy kit is way better regardless because you don't have to deal with salvaging the stock sleeves, the replacement sleeves arm beefier, and it just much more simple to install.verified_user Verified Buyer - Valhalla Computers and Entertainment LLC - .

starstarstarstarstar" Great product "
Ride is very stiff and rebound is great. Makes for a rough ride but that is what it costs to have a stiff ride. Not for anyone who wants ultra smooth comfort.verified_user Verified Buyer - Andrew Cox - . Energy Suspension 5.3136 - 5 out of 5
starstarstarstar_borderstar_border" Awesome for the track, harsh on the road "
High quality item. You can really feel the car being glued to the road. Awesome for aggressive driving. Unfortunately, it is very harsh for a daily commuter. If you travel a long distance you will realize that the suspension is not forgiving to any road imperfection. Perfect for track or Autobahn - Awful for California roads.verified_user Verified Buyer - Rossi - . Energy Suspension 5.3136 - 3 out of 5
