recommended after market brand for bushings. OEM

Post by jakimiakj » Thu Sep 01, 2016 11:24 pm

I try to avoid dealer parts if possible , but have found at time dealers parts are worthy.

I am about to do some suspension work to my 92 legacy L. I am going to replace some of the trailing arm bushings that appear dry and wore out. would it be recommended to also do the very control arm bushings as well while I'm in there? Also do you have a recommended brand for aftermarket bushings? I feel like I remember felpro being a recommended brand......?

I use whiteline bushings but they are very high performance so they will dig into your wallet

For the rear trailing arms and lateral links Turn in Concepts makes a nice set, I've had them on my car for a few years now and they really change how the car feels and handles.

For the front control arms I like the Superpro front inner bushing, and the Whiteline ALK for the rear bushing and housing. The ALK is more expensive than just a bushing, but much easier to replace and has other performance benefits.

If you are looking for more info and/or a place to order any of this stuff let me know.

The split poly bushings like powerflex & whiteline will be MUCH easier to install than a standard one-piece rubber bushing.
