8.3131 | Subaru BRZ | Front Control Arm Bushing Replacement Kit
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" Good product, fast delivery "
Seem to perform very well, paired these with Megan racing ball joints and can feel an amazing difference in the overall handling, not easy to install but that was expected.verified_user Verified Buyer - Patrick Bass - . Energy Suspension 8.3131 - 5 out of 5
starstarstarstarstar" Great improvement to handling "
I had a professional shop install these on my Subaru Brz. Overall, these definitely improve handling. Turn in is sharper. Steering is much quicker with more feel. The steering is also a bit more weighted, which inspires more confidence on high speed turns. I would recommend this to anyone who wants better steering and handling out of their BRZ. No squeaks either, which is a good thing. The ride also did not suffer from the install of polyurethane bushings.verified_user Verified Buyer - Suki S. - . Energy Suspension 8.3131 - 5 out of 5
