7280 | Vega | Front Control Arm Bushing Replacement Kit
Resistant to both contamination and physical wear, the 7-280 will not only hold your control arms securely in place and restore your handling, they will actually improve your Vega's responsiveness to be better than when it was new.
Restoring a Classic
When you're restoring a classic like a 1970's Chevrolet Vega you'll want to make sure everything is in pristine condition. After many years of driving and most likely several years of sitting around, the original parts on your Vega will be worn down. One of the crucial parts you'll almost certainly have to replace will be your front control arm bushings. The old bushings on your Vega are made of soft rubber, this rubber does a good job of reducing NVH but is prone to cracking and rotting away. Once this rubber wears out your control arms are left loose. This not only causes various handling issues, like a loose steering wheel or your car drifting to either side, but the control arms could also bang into other chassis parts, leading to additional damage.
Upgrading a Classic
This is Prothane's 7-280, a complete set of polyurethane front control arm bushings made specifically for the 1972 - 1979 Chevrolet Vega. The polyurethane used in these bushings makes the 7-280 much more durable than the original rubber. Resistant to both contamination and physical wear, the 7-280 will not only hold your control arms securely in place and restore your handling, but they will also improve your Vega's responsiveness to be better than when it was new.
Driving a Classic
Since these new bushings are made of polyurethane instead of the original soft rubber your NVH might increase slightly. But with all the hard work you're putting into restoring your Vega, the improved performance plus the protection for your other suspension parts will be well worth it. Plus the 7-280 is covered with Prothane's Lifetime warranty handled in house here at DST.
