Polyurethane Suspension Parts

Want some new struts? What brand springs to buy? How much camber to run? What brake pads? What's the best setup for your situation....

I posted some years ago I guess and like anything old and worthwhile read it was deleted.  I may have posted on the old board.

I just came to realize that everyone is ordering mounts, control arm bushings, and sway bar bushings from Summit and other places.

www.suspension.com has all the parts, and when you take in account for shipping its CHEAPER...not by much, but enough to order from suspension.com.   When you call the people on the phone they answer right away, and shipping is exact.

There was a problem a while ago when they were temporary out of stock.

33151 is a part number for 87-93 control arm bushings
35170 is a part number for FE3 bushings

I ordered bushings with brackets adapated for FE7 bar(which Boner is now selling on ebay for $38 set claiming his design)

Another thing I'd like to point out about FE7 adaption, if you use the greasable ones, you should put a 90 degree elbow on to allow a grease gun to access.

I got really annoyed with Steph today about this.  I had her order parts for some projects and she was ordering PST from one place and Energy from Summit...when she can order it there for a few bucks less.

Autozone raised its prices on Energy products recently, they wanted like $17 or $19 for endlinks!

I wish there was a decent set of 94-96 vertical busings for the control arms. Mold in some tabs in the ring so the rubber doesnt fall out people! Ugh.

Oh another thing, RKsport.com has upper motor mount insert that will work for 95-96 v6' and probably other years and motors. It's poly. #02031120 .
Cost is only $15 dollars! Click here for direct link. It may work with 94, (or older) but I upgraded my 94 mount to 95+ style as it has a removeable top and an insert from the factory that limits movement. It's still going strong vs my 94 which I tore in half. (if swapping your 94 for a 95+ you need to get the aluminum t-bone looking thing too along with the black mount)


Also, advance auto parts has an optional solid rubber upper mount too that isn't fluid filled. Might be a good upgrade w/the RKsport insert if your stock mount is worn.

There is solid aluminum lower dogbone with poly bushings from Fast FWD performance too.

For the trans mount you'll have to fill it with poly urathane windsheild adhesive DIY custom job.

I figure this is related to suspension/bushings/mounts.

If you go to energysuspensionparts.com they have a set for are cars that include every part ES makes for our vehicles for $79.95. That's control arm bushings (still no set for the verticle bushings), front and rear swaybar bushings, end links, and tie rod boots. Not a bad deal.

I was wondering if I'd catch any hell for it! :D

Just figured the info may come in handy for someone else too.
