    Front end rebuild

    With 128K on the odometer and with more and more clunks starting to become apparent, I have to face the inevitable......

    I want to change out the Bushings in the control arms but will probably need to pre-order them.

    What brand is the best quality for stock replacement rubber? I am not wanting Poly since it is a daily driver. How many do I need and are they all the same size?

    Thanks!

    OEM rubber is not always the best to go with. Poly last much longer, yes it can be stiffer on the ride, but honestly, these cars are not the smoothest rides.

    GMPartsdirect.com should be able to order OEM bushings if that is what you really want, but I would talk with PAJEFF02, he just finished a K member swap and I'll 100% sure he used poly bushings. and can tell you why it would be a better option.


    Here is the thread he did.

    I have used PST polygraphite bushings in a couple of cars. No noise, they do not deteriorate like rubber, and less deflection.
