Prothane Control Arm Bushings
A control arm bushing plays a vital role in a suspension. Replace those faulty O.E. rubber bushings with Prothane's polyurethane control arm bushings. These polyurethane bushings provide the longevity and performance needed to maximize a suspension's efficiency.
Prothane's 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.
Use Prothane's Super Grease
Control arm bushings are a high stress part, so be sure to use the supplied Prothane's Super Grease to lubricate the bushings during installation. Its super important that you lubricate each bushing well to prevent any squeaking. If you'd like some extra grease just in case, pick up an extra 3 pack.

The parts are perfect, polyurethane gives you a feel like no other. I wouldnt recommend putting them in anything but a new control arm though since pulling out your old one will generally ruin your ball joint.verified_user Verified Buyer - Justin Tudor - . Prothane 13205 - 5 out of 5

Works great on my 99 Galant GTZ which also works with a 2000 Eclipse. Only suggestoin that I have is to change out the metal bushing to a milimeter rather than an SAE size. The bushing has a bit of play when you run the bolt through but as long as you tighten it down it wont rattle. For how long ????? well have to wait and see.verified_user Verified Buyer - Ramon Velarde - . Prothane 13205 - 5 out of 5
