These Rear Control Arm Bushings will restore the ride of your '70-'76 Monte Carlo as well as several Buick models by replacing worn or degraded rubber control arm bushings. As the original rubber bushings wear down, the alignment angles of your car can be thrown off causing uneven tire wear, steering wander, and less responsive handling during a turn, but this can be fixed for good with polyurethane rear control arm bushings.
Worn Rear Control Arm Bushings
If you own a classic Chevy, or you've found one to restore, then the original suspension bushings are very likely shot. Using rubber replacement bushings will make your ride "like new" but if you've seen the original bushings then you know what rubber bushings will eventually look like, and even new OE rubber bushings will flex with suspension travel and change wheel alignment during a sharp turn. Here in north central Texas where even driveways can be rough (and a mile long) vulnerable rubber bushings are not a long term solution for your suspension.
Restore or Upgrade?
If you've already replaced those original rear control arm bushings, would you be interested in a longer lasting bushing that increases response, decreases uneven tire wear, and holds wheel alignment during sharp turns?
Energy Suspension's Polyurethane Rear Control Arm Bushings for early model Chevelle, El Camino, Monte Carlo and several Buicks will replace vulnerable rubber bushings and last the life of your car. Increased longevity is not the only upside to these bushings. Rubber does a good job at absorbing vibration but is not very good when it comes to holding the control arms in alignment, especially during a hard turn, and that is where polyurethane really shines.
Alignment for Life
Polyurethane is a much more durable substance than rubber and doesn't deflect which means your rear control arms are held in alignment along with your rear wheels. The alignment of your wheels affects tire wear and even traction during a turn, so making sure it's stable is important. Unlike rubber, these polyurethane bushings are not degraded by heat, wear, and oils which can cause rubber to crack or possibly degrade until they fall right off your car. Suspension.com offers an exclusive lifetime warranty for these bushings which we will handle for you in house.
