Bushings! Recomendations?
 
So thanks to all of you guys :thumb: I've got a pretty good idea of what i'm going to put into my jeep. I believe my first step is going to be to replace all of the bushings, control arm bushings, sway bar bushings, and any other bushings really. I've done some research but I can't seem to find any reviews. !!

I'm planning on replacing springs and shocks, only a 2" lift, so i'm keeping the stock control arms. any recomendations? good and bad reviews are welcome

Probably because you might be the first to go through and replace all the bushings. Why are all your bushings shot? What kind of bushing acid did you drive through? ;)

Well I know the bushings are shot in my control arms and other ones that i find seem cracked... i haven't done anything to this jeep and its a 99 so i figured 14 years might be time

if you're looking to replace all the bushings, stick with the stock Clevite style bushings. don't fall for the poly bushing crap.

Just a FYI, all the Clevite bushings are press fit. It's generally easier to replace the whole control arm or track bar than it is to replace each bushing.

the sway bar mounting bushings are easy to replace, again, stick with normal stock replacements from Moog, or your brand of choice.

Aside from OEM, maybe these:

Energy Suspension Hyper-Flex Master Kit System, Black Bushings 218107G

Hyper-Flex Master System 1 Lift Black 218106G

So if I go with the standard clevite bushings,I'm assuming I would have to go somewhere to have them pressed in? there's no tool for it? if its that much of a hassle to just buy a new one, i have a pretty big vice i could try :rofl:
I figured a nice aftermarket set would allow more flex or something, but i don't know, hence why i'm on here :D
i'm going to look at the ones your talking about,

Look at prices. The complete control arms might be cheaper or equal to the aftermarket bushings.

Why would one think poly flexes better than rubber?
