When bushings associated with antisway bars, shocks/struts, body and rack and-pinion mounts, end links, and other suspension and steering components wear out, the need for replacement should be viewed as an opportunity to upgrade. Doing so enables vehicle owners to enjoy quicker and more responsive steering and crisper handling than they did when their automobiles were new. The fact is that original equipment (OE) rubber and/or silicone bushings are selected by manufacturers primarily with limiting noise, vibration, and harshness in mind. On the other hand, replacement bushings made of polyurethane not only provide a measure of cushioning, but also superior handling response that driving enthusiasts value. So, in essence, replacement polyurethane bushings provide the best of both worlds.

If your bushings are worn out, and you'd like to upgrade rather than just replace, you need to call our shop. Our ASE-certified technicians will be happy to explain the pros and cons of any replacement part, including the benefits of upgrading to polyurethane.
