Q & A

What's in the Box

Reduce wheel hop and axle wrap while improving the cornering capabilities of your 1964-1981 GM A-Body or 1978-1988 GM G-Body. Set includes bushings for upper and lower rear control arms.

  • Full-Floating, Non-Binding Design
    • Important when ride height is altered or greater suspension load is required
    • Especially important for both lowered and raised vehicles that have had drastic suspension geometry modifications
  • Superior Performance Over Time
    • Performance polyurethane control arm bushings do not rot or deteriorate from oils or atmospheric conditions such as ozone, smog, road salt, chemicals, and other corrosives
    • Will not deteriorate in a few short years and cause that mushy, uncertain response like rubber O.E.M. ones often do
  • Maintains Proper Pinion Angle
    • Weak rear control arm bushings will flex during launch and damage can occur to the U-joints
    • Polyurethane will flex, but it holds the rear drivetrain system in proper alignment

See Application tab to ensure these bushings fit your chassis.
