Need help choosing better LCR bushings,sway bar bushing and end links.
 
Hello everyone, I have a 09 LGT with 44k miles and my suspension looks like in needs some maintenance, I did some reading and it looks like there's no point on replacing with OEM because they don't last at all . My Lower control arm bushing in the front are beginning to rip, i have heard that white liner yellow bushings are way stiffer and transfer more vibration , any other options? Im also in the market for rear and front sway bar bushing and end links ? any help greatly appreciated, The car is all stock besides stage one tune , its my daily and i wont be doing any power mods , thanks again
any best online vendors ?

There are a few places to shop for this. Check the vendor section for a list of options

There are a few options out there for bushings, if you want them to be adjustable whitelines are the way to go. I love mine, and didnt notice the NVH too much.. Then again I cant get the sway bars to stop making noises either... As far as endlinks, KartBoys seem to be the choice, I have mine and love them. Sway bars, so many choices, adjustable or non etcc...

I'm looking to keep the costs down and they don't need to be adjustable, I rather them not be since I don't mess around with all that staff

Your lucky.

Contact Mike at www.AZPinstalls.com he's close to you in NJ.

He can give you good prices, free advice and his guy's can do the install.

You won't find better customer service .

+1 for Mike/AZP. Great guy and a long-time supporting vendor of this forum.

I can also quote Whiteline swaybars and Perrin non-adjustable bushing-type endlinks for you. Just don't buy them from me and ask Mike to install them. :)

As far as LCA bushings... pretty much any aftermarket or Group.N option is going to be stiffer (that's the point). I found that the bushings alone did not transfer much more NVH, rather, the road surface is felt a bit more through the floor boards. Personally I recommend the Whiteline LCA bushing because it offers an adjustment so you can dial your caster in near-perfect. The other options would require you to press out, rotate, and press the bushing back in, which is asking for trouble and a big NO-NO.

Thank you all for your help, I have been to AZP in the past and love the place , not sure why i haven't though about asking them about the parts, just haven't been there in a while and ill be doing this myself , Thank you for listing me some of the options ill be sure to look through them.
