Are Polly bushings worth it?
 
I've been noticing my rigs been making some weird noises when I get on it a bit aggressively in first, I think the control arm bushings may be wearing out. The rigs got about 35k on the stock bushings, and I noticed that the sway bar bushings were real bad when I changed to JKS Disco's. This leads me to suspect the other stock bushings may be wearing out as well. Is it worth the cash to change over to Polly bushings? Other options?

Thanks :cool:

Based on the experience I've had, I'd stick with the OEM style bushings or go with a Johnny Joint. Before upgrading all 8 arms to Currie with the double JJ's I had Full Traction LCAs with poly bushings on each end, Rubicon Express rear UCAs with a joint on one end and the rubber bushing on the other, and the stock front UCAs . . . the Poly bushing were the first go bad and they went bad really quick (literally after a couple of offroad outings) . . . The RE's held up a bit longer but the rubber bushings would split in half after a few runs. After replacing bushings a few times in the FT and RE arms I decided to upgrade to the Currie's which have been awesome. The stock front UCAs were still in good shape when I pulled them.
