    Are all aftermarket LCAs the same?

    I've isolated an embarrassing squeak to my stock LCAs, so I want to replace them with ones that have grease fittings. I don't think I need chrome-molly ones since I doubt I'd ever need that much strength. So, of all the brands of LCAs out there, are they all pretty much the same, or is one particular manufacturer better than the rest? Also, do boxed LCAs make any difference over tubular?

    triple-black
    2000 CamaroSS convertible

    not at all... there are many different ones.
    of the common different ones:
    rubber bushings
    polyurethane bushings
    polyurethane/rod-ends bushings
    rod-ends bushings

    and even the rod-end ones, there are different types and qualities.
    you get what you pay for, though.

    Boxed are stronger than tubular in most cases check out the LG website as he uses both pu and rubber bushings and has greese fittings,
