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.

These bushing held up very well for my daily driven and road tripped often 99 Accord. I only ran into one snag which wasnt a huge deal. I cannot remember which bushing exactly they were, but two were only slightly spaced different from another two, and my OEM bushings coming out were too shot to recognize this difference. It was difficult to figure out which way the went cause they dont look like the originals at all, you can only slightly tell by shape. This also happened with the 2 piece trailing arm cups that went into the subframe. Again Ive installed many Polly and OEM bushings and still struggled to match them up cause they would either fit both ways or were nearly the same but spaced differently.. I ended up installing them and noticing my control arm not moving very freely, so I reversed it and it was fine. I would have been so thankful for a simple idiot proof diagram of how they intended the bushings to be installed. Especially with the trailing arms. Either way the product was fantastic and worked great for me, I would still highly recommend purchasing this kit to resolve the OEM ones always tearing. Great purchase!verified_user Verified Buyer - Steele Parks - . Prothane 8227 - 5 out of 5

Im rating a 4 but only because certain models are good like they held up real well in my integra. However, in my 2000 accord braking would cause the bushings to push out of the arm. The fork on the lower end of the strut tightens down to the sleeve that goes through the center of the bushing. So it jus slides back and forth during breaking. I swapped it out for genuine honda bushings which are bonded one piece rubber bushings in metal sleeves that press in and the problem went away u could even here a noise during braking. I would say they lasted about a year before the problem actually started and will say my grl is hard on the cat and its a heavy sedan but i was always hard on my integra and it would stick some corners and theyll still in decent shape. Overall a good product but like i saif maybe some need to be improved for certain models.verified_user Verified Buyer - Tyler Brinton - . Prothane 8227 - 4 out of 5
starstarstarstarstar" Well worth it. "
This includes all the parts needed to replace all bushings on the lower control arms and the strut rods. I wish they had a kit like this for every car.verified_user Verified Buyer - Joel Van Hoogen - . Prothane 8227 - 5 out of 5
