Labor claims, time loss, or freight charges will not be honored.
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 good quality "
These bushings are listed for a late model Beetle but they also fit the rear of a 1973-74 VW THING. Use lots of the lubricant on every part (you can not use too much). I used the factory shims in the stock location and they worked perfectly.verified_user Verified Buyer - Jacob H Bagnell - . Energy Suspension 15.3105 - 5 out of 5

starstarstarstarstar" Good Product! "
The Bushings fit nice and tight and even came with a bit of high viscosity bushing lube. These went into a 74 IRS Bug (Standard Beetle) and replaced the worn out stock bushings. \n\nBesides the Rear Control Arm Bushings I also replaced the torsion arm bushings and the steering is much improved. \n\nI would suggest these bushings to replace the stock bushings as they are made of better material than the originals. Only 120 miles on them so far and if I have any issues I will be sure to update my review.verified_user Verified Buyer - William Valliant - . Energy Suspension 15.3105 - 5 out of 5

The old ones were hard to get out (probably original equipment). These new bushing fit perfectly. I also appreciate receiving the special grease.verified_user Verified Buyer - Dwight Foster - . Energy Suspension 15.3105 - 5 out of 5
