    Superpro bushings any good compared to Energy?

    Any of you guys use these on your Supra? I read there good better then energy as those squeak to the point you need to put grease fittings... I want to take my suspension apart clean it up and paint and replace everything so I want to be sure I can invest in the right things, thnx

    They need to be greased like all poly bushings, but I'd say they're better than the energy parts.

    ok thanks, seems they make a bunch of sets for Supra's more expensive but I am more interested in getting what you pay for and not putting them on the going crazy from squeaks or issues of binding...

    Those bushings are HARD and they don't rotate like the rubber ones.
    The inner sleeve rotates inside the bushings and yes,they need lube.

    Those also transfer a lot of road noise into the car.
    I didn't like the effect and went back to rubber end links for my front sway bar.
    At hi way speeds,it sounded like I was driving on cobble stones.
    Race car? Yes. Not for my DD street car.

    My front Whiteline bar came with *poly* bushings. I left the frame mounts in and swapped back just the end links.
    The rest of the suspension bushings are OEM replacements.Moog,etc.
