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.

The bushings them selfs are great, amazing actually! But there was a few things I had a few problems with. First things first the lower control arm bushings, they were easy to install and the old bushings were easy to uninstall. Until I tried to put the bolt through the bushing and it fell out like a hot dog down a hallway. I ended up having to burn melt and scrape every last tiny bit of the old bushing off of the original center core witch by the way I feel should have already been included like the upper ones were if you ask me. and then I lubed them up and slid them into the bushings. It was a properly tight fit and all lower control arm movement was no longer existent. Now the upper control arm bushings. this one didnt have any instructions that were useful for it and were not fun to remove. As for the installation, the instructions simply stated to slide the new ones in but this was not the case with the upper control arm bushings. Luckily the center bar that goes between the two bushings can be used to pull the bushings in together. Once my upper and lower control arms were reinstalled I immediately felt a difference in ride quality and stability within the vehicle.verified_user Verified Buyer - Lucis M Abril - .

The new long bushings did not come with the steel sleeve so, I had to cut them out of the old ones, kinda felt like Fred Flintstone scavaging them but, had no choice. Editors Note:The inner sleeves in this kit is not included. We do have some poly urethane kits do have the inner sleeve. In this case not.verified_user Verified Buyer - Mark Meyer - .

These bushings are exactly as described. The fit is perfect. The removal of the stock bushings is difficult, but the benefits these bushings provide is worth any trouble you may have. The handling and ride quality are vastly improved over stock.verified_user Verified Buyer - Chris Peet - . Energy Suspension 8.3106 - 5 out of 5
