After labor costs and car rental, you are looking at upwards of a thousand dollars to replace a couple of weak busted bushings with the same faulty OE bushings. But not with Prothane's LX front control arm bushings.
Prothane Front Control Arm Bushings 4-226
Driving fast takes a toll
Traveling at high speeds is probably the main reason you bought your LX vehicle right? Of course it is! When it comes to your suspension though, the problem with high speeds is the impact the rubber bushings take when you hit a bump or dip in the road. With factory rubber bushings installed on these high horsepower vehicles, you're just asking for trouble, take it from us at DST.
The rubber is failing
The rubber front control arm bushings on these vehicles aren't holding up very well with these higher horsepower vehicles. Anytime a control arm bushing cracks or distorts the geometry of the suspension changes, throwing off the alignment, decreasing braking efficiency and negatively affecting the handling performance. These models are reporting early bushing failures, especially with the police interceptors. The front radius arm bushings on the police cars are blowing out in as little as 15000 miles.
LX Platform Suspension Upgrade
Prothane's polyurethane increases the steering response while providing more support to the suspension than did the OE rubber. The 4-226
is a polyurethane upgrade for the front control arms for the LX platform vehicles:
Saving money, always a good thing
The OE solution to these blow own bushings is to purchase whole control arms. All four of these costs up into the four to five hundred dollar range, and that's just for the parts! After labor costs and car rental, you are looking at upwards of a thousand dollars to replace a couple of weak busted bushings with the same faulty OE bushings. But not with Prothane's LX front control arm bushings. With Prothane's 4-226
