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.

After driving to Matamoros Mexico for over 6 months my car had developed several severe suspension problems and I did not realize how bad they were. I drive 150 miles between my home and work 5 times a week. There are more than 20 speed bumps on my way to work.... yes 40 in total! The MK4 GLI models are known to have problems with the larger rear busing since VW had left spaces in the bushings so after some 90K to 100K miles these bushing wear badly and make noises etc. Bad alignment to boot. After installing these Prothane bushing the car changed: better handling, tight steering, and very solid all of a sudden. If you are a avid VW driver like I am do yourself a favor and install these on your MK4. You'll be happy you did!!verified_user Verified Buyer - Eric Vandomselaar - . Prothane 22202 - 5 out of 5
