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_border" Good, but here are some hints "
This product did not include lubricant. I used heavy duty axle grease for boat trailers because it is the least water soluble substance on Earth and stays put. The split bushing that goes through the front pivot on the lower-control arm is simple: no problem. The larger single-piece bushing that gets inserted through the separate bracket of the rear pivot is hard to insert with bare hands. Instead, place bracket again garage floor, and press bushing in from above using a 10-inch length of 2x4 lumber. This provide the steadying forces that a bare hand can't provide.verified_user Verified Buyer - David E Webb - . Energy Suspension 4.3156 - 4 out of 5
Used these bushings on my 2008 Ford Focus which required me to change to the older 00-04 front rear bushing brackets. After doing so the car handles tighter and quicker steering response. Thumbs up!verified_user Verified Buyer - Benito Garza Jr - . Energy Suspension 4.3156 - 5 out of 5
