Polyurethane or rubber? Are you going to do a body lift or keep it stock?

Eventually I want to do a body lift, but thatís in a few months. Reason Iím asking is because I noticed my bushings are not at the best.

I have energy suspension bushings but they don't fit the leaf spring shackle bushing right. Because the spring was made a bit narrow and it causes them to wear out prematurely. People complain about poly bushings riding stiffer because they flex less and that is probbaly true. I am running all Poly except motor mounts which i kept rubber to help lessen vibration. It probbaly does ride worse but i been driving it so long i got used to it. I know it feels nothing like it did when the jeep was stock and it is less comfortable. If you don't want vibrations and stiffer ride use rubber. And never use poly on engine mounts that just asking for trouble.

Bushing bushing bushing!!

If youíre going to do a body lift later, it seems like doing this full kit now would just be doubling your workload, since youíll have to replace the body mounts twice. Iíd just get a kit that includes 1 inch lift mounts and get it all done once. The lift isnít hard to do, assuming your bolts arenít rusty. I did poly and it rides fine for me, though my rubber bushings had all crumbled, so I didnít even notice if it got any stiffer when I replaced them.

IMHO, colored bushings are for the "look at me" crowd. I think they look silly.
Just my opinion though. I'm an old guy and real conservative.
I suggest you get yourself noticed with quality work rather than flash.

The ads state that the poly bushings are more durable. When I replaced my springs 4 years ago the Jeep had 150K+ miles and was 27 years old. The spring bushings were still serviceable. If you install new factory style rubber bushings and they last only 10 years, will you still own the Jeep then?

Good Luck, L.M.
