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" Review 1 Year Later, theyre polyurethane, need I say more! "
I love them! I will ALWAYS purchase polyurethane bushings, when that option is available! Advice for future purchasers, If you think you have them lube enough, slather more on there! These bushings absolutely HAVE to have lube, for ease of installation, longevity, and to prevent suspension system squeaks! (Or whatever system you purchased your poly bushings for!)verified_user Verified Buyer - mark beery - . Energy Suspension 18.3101 - 5 out of 5

The bushings were installed with new control arms/ball joints to solve a clunk issue in the car. All is well with the install. Expected increase in road noise from stiffer bushings did NOT really happen as the ride noise is nowhere near objectionable or distracting. Handling is much improved making the car more enjoyable to drive.\n\nThanksverified_user Verified Buyer - Daniel Shuman - . Energy Suspension 18.3101 - 5 out of 5
