Find control arm bushings for your vehicle below.Energy Suspension's polyurethane control arm bushings provide sharper handling by holding the alignment angles of your wheels much better than the original rubber.
The front and rear control arms are responsible for holding the alignment angles of your wheels, like the camber angle which is the vertical alignment or tilt. Worn control arm bushings can allow the camber angle to drastically change when making a sharp quick turn and in extreme cases can reduce the amount of the tire's contact patch which means less traction. When the OE (original equipment) rubber A arm bushings become worn due to age, wear, or the elements you could experience steering wander because of misaligned wheels. Even in good condition soft rubber bushings also deflect during a turn which can allow the lateral load transfer (shifting weight) of your vehicle to roll the body to the outside and make handling feel sloppy.
If you've noticed some unusual tire wear on the edges, or excessive body roll then the culprits are likely the control arm bushings. Energy Suspension's polyurethane control arm bushings provide sharper handling by holding the alignment angles of your wheels much better than the original rubber.
Polyurethane is a much more durable material than rubber and withstands the shape changing force of your vehicle's weight transfer to the outside when turning. Not only this, but poly bushings have a much longer effective lifespan compared to OE, and stand up to road grime, salts, and other factors that are harmful to rubber. Since the bushings are more sturdy there will be an increase in noise and vibration transferred to the cabin, but with that comes a dramatic increase in handling performance. Energy Suspenison's bushings can provide a solid balance between the comfort and performance of your vehicle, plus they are covered by DST's exclusive lifetime warranty.
