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 bushing 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.

starstarstarstarstar" Parts were great "
The parts worked great and installed easy, the only issue I had was removing the stock bushings. You must have a hydraulic pressverified_user Verified Buyer - ryan evelo - . Prothane 16201 - 5 out of 5
starstarstarstarstar_border" Great bushings. "
Awesome bushings, easy install, ride is much stiffer. If NVH is a concern, don't install these, but if handling and responsiveness is your goal, you'll love these. Although I'd did have to trim the width of a pair of bushings and metal races. They were about 10 mm too wide for my application (Impreza 98). My bad ordering... But rest fit great!verified_user Verified Buyer - Eric L. St-Jean - . Prothane 16201 - 4 out of 5
