Energy Suspension provides grease to install these parts, but you can never have too much. Grab an extra 3-pack of grease so you can more liberally apply grease when installing.

Labor claims, time loss, or freight charges will not be honored.
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.

These bushings were very easy to install, and fit perfectly. Im sure they will last a lot longer than the OEM ones that continually would wear out.verified_user Verified Buyer - Joseph Frotton - . Energy Suspension 7.3118 - 5 out of 5

These bushings are the real deal. I put them on and noticed the difference the moment I drove the car - steering was stiffer, things were just a ton more firm. I was pleased right away. One note to 5th Gen Maxima drivers: DO NOT REPLACE THESE WITHOUT REPLACING THE SWAY BAR END LINKS TOO. These will firm things up but chances are your clunking is coming from the end links. I heard someone say that the red bushings squeak, baloney. I've had them on for about a month now and in semi-aggressive driving situations and they've never given a peep. If you have time, a press and a few bucks to throw at this, do it. It's possibly the most accessible upgrade you can make to your car that will immediately improve day-to-day driveability.verified_user Verified Buyer - Tom Slage - .

All I have to say is once you change these bushings you wouldn't have to change your control arm because these bushings usually don't go bad with polyurethane bushings A+A+verified_user Verified Buyer - Jose Vargas - . Energy Suspension 7.3118 - 5 out of 5
