Energy Suspension Front Control Arm Bushing Kit 8.3128

If you are searching for a solution to the sloppy performance and annoying clunking from the front control arms, this kit is designed for you.

Cracked or rotted factory rubber bushings reduce the efficiency of your suspension, put your control arms in danger of major damage and leave a symphony of rattles and clunking that can drive anyone crazy. Another victim of those soft rubber bushings is your alignment. If you keep finding your vehicle out of alignment, it may be a result of rotted control arm bushings throwing off the geometry of your suspension. Replacing factory rubber bushings with Energy Suspension's Polyurethane performance bushings will give your suspension the handling you've always dreamed of and eliminate those annoying noise that makes you cringe when you are flying down the road.

starstar_borderstar_borderstar_borderstar_border" Installation SUCKS "

There are a lot of issues with these bushings, some are not the manufacturers fault, others - are. And I am not talking about price - this is something the buyer at least knows in advance.\n\n1. Their claim that all it takes is "some smoke from the bushing to separate the sleeves from rubber" is an outright lie. It may be the case with a jeep but certainly not with Toyota - you need to torch it for a long time to actually burn rubber off.\n\n2. The fact that they dont provide sleeves with the bushings is simply ridiculous. Especially considering the price. In fact, I would not mind paying extra so that I did not have to dissect the old bushings, and the first issue is minor compared to this one. It is pretty common for bolts/sleeves to freeze in bushings so its virtually impossible to separate them from inner bushing sleeves without damaging them. \nIt may not be an issue with jeeps and fords because their bushings are replaced on a regular basis but Toyota bushings last so long that its practically unavoidable to face this. In my case, the truck is 17 yo with 230,000 miles, and the original bushings were still good. The only reason I had to replace them was the installation of a lift and JBA upper control arms that required alignment that couldnt be performed because - you guessed it - one bolt and one cam sleeve were frozen. After 17 years in the Midwest and N-E, it should not come as a surprise.\nThis condition requires a hell of a lot of heating and pounding, pounding and heating, and then its a real PITA to attach the [original] washers to most likely damaged bushing sleeves.\n\n3. The last issue is design - there are no lubrication means. And dont tell me its impossible - just look at JBA upper control arms. I installed grease fitting in control arm ears and drilled holes in the bushings to allow grease flow to inner sleeves. Hope it will work.\n\nOverall, bushing material is probably adequate but pure inexcusable greed that prevented the manufacturer from providing lower bushing sleeves and washers (even for extra $$) is beyond ridiculous. \nBottom line: if your vehicle is 10+ yo and has spent that time in places where winter happens every year, expect MAJOR (BIGLY!) hassle installing these bushings. Or - MUCH BETTER OPTION - buy from another manufacture that does provide all necessary components. Editors Note: Issue 1: The rubber is vulcanized to the outer shell and inner sleeve. Sometimes it does take more heat to separate the rubber bushing from the outer shell. The inner sleeve is harder to remove. Most customers cut the rubber away and use a wire wheel to remove the rest of the rubber left over. \nIssue 2: The outer shells are very hard to manufacture. It would make the kit very expensive to add the outer shells and the special washers required. Living in any area that uses salt and chemicals to clear the roads in the wintertime adds to the issues as far as removing hardware. Any mechanic or DIY knows this. \nIssue 3: Because you are using OEM control arms you would have to drill a hole in the control arm and bushing. You could do this but it will void the warranty on the bushing. The aftermarket tubular control arms such as JBA and others design their arms and bushings for them to be greased. \nIf you have any questions please about installation call us at 888-406-2330 or email sales@suspension.com. If we cannot answer the question we can give you the manufacturers tech support number.

starstarstarstar_borderstar_border" Great ... but not "

This is a great product. The biggest problem is the omission (re-use) of the lower control arm inner sleeves. I would pay double, if not TRIPLE for a kit which included the inner sleeves. Trying to re-use these sleeves from a set of rusted-shut control arms was just a terrible experience. I ended up having to buy a whole extra control arm and destroy it to get another set of inner sleeves, since mine were not possible to remove without destroying. I dont care how much force or fluid you use, sometimes there is just no way to save those parts. So, like I said, I would have gladly paid $$$$$$ extra for inner sleeves for the lower control arms. \nBut the bushings themselves are a great improvement. Great control. I just lost so much encouragement on this job during the 14+ hour battle to save and re-use the sleeves! And the way in which you have to pop the washer off the sleeve and then re-flare it back on ... sketchy. Editors Note: Many poly urethane bushing kits you have to reuse the outer shell and inner sleeve. This hardware could be very difficult to manufacture in some cases. I understand your frustration concerning this problem.
