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" very impressed "
These bushings made the most difference of all. They eliminated wheel hop and some torque steer issues. The car is stiff and precise like it had stiffer springs. Much improved handling.verified_user Verified Buyer - drew grindstaff - . Energy Suspension 8.3109 - 5 out of 5

This kit also fits Toyota Van Wagon up to 1985 model. 86-89 require making longer center spacers for the lower arms. 2.350" LONG X 3/4 OD AND 14MM ID. I got the black ones with no lube and they were a little squeaky for about 150 miles or so. No troubles now and my rig is running strong.verified_user Verified Buyer - walter schoennauer - .
