    Default Global West Control Arm Bushings

    Hey guys.

    I was about to order the energy suspention poly bushing kit, but ran into these.

    Global West Suspension 1059 - Global West Suspension Del-a-lum Control Arm Bushings

    Global West Suspension 1060 - Global West Suspension Del-a-lum Control Arm Bushings


    Obviously the price of these is a lot higher then poly. But it might be worth it. Anyone have these and can comment? OR know of someone with them?

    I would like to keep noise down to a minimum if possible of course.

    I guess the alternative would be to drill/tap the control arms for zirk fittings when they are apart for bushing change....

    Comments?

    Thanks

    I have Global West Del-a-Lum bushings on my 71 Vette, my 01 Camaro and my 65 Malibu. They are far superior to urethane in that they really are a suspension bearing. The oncs on my Malibu have been in service for about 20 years. All I've done is lube them periodically.

    One thing, you said you want to "keep noise" to a minimum. If you mean road noise and harshness then you need to use OE-type rubber bushings.

    If you mean, not having the squeaking that is often characteristic of urethane bushings, then Global West is the way to go because they never squeak.
