Who would like Polyeurothane suspension bushing pieces?

This goes for 1993 through 2004? model years.

I'd like to see how many people would like polly bushings made for their car. I'd imagine they'de cost nearly the price of stock, or possibly more, but those would probably be the last ones you'd need for quite a while, and the increase in performance would be very substantial.

I have a local mechanic friend that mentioned energy bushings, and how they have a very very good aftermarket poly suspension bushing systems made for some cars out there that perform far better than stock, meaning less body roll and what not. They also last a lot long.

Would you be interested in finding out if bushings can be made for all years of Intrepids, or all LH model vehicles?

If so, cast your vote. The more votes, the fast the response.

I've taken it upon myself to email energybushings.com since I didnt find any "kit" assemblies for our cars, but I'll take a walk a little later throgh their site to find out if any of their universal parts will work good.

Thanks for your interest!

No thanks. Poly is noisy and transfers vibrations thru the unibody.

I'd want some, however I have tried emailing them and never got a response. Also I've tried emailing procarparts.com about getting some projector headlights for the 93-97 Intrepids and also never got a response. But if you wanna try to I suppose the more people that do it the better.

I'd rather have a noisier ride than an unsafe one, plus with my stereo system, I'd never notice, but I can understand your train o thought though

I think the R/T is stiff enough, in fact I switched tires so that a softer sidewall softened the ride. My $.02

I have no idea what you are talking about. Bushings are just one of those things ill never understand.

I think you should try to post some of the pros and cons on poly bushings for your car. Maybe that would spark a little more interest from people who are clueless like me.

If you can get Performance Suspension Technologies to put out some Poly-graphite bushings for our Treps, I'd be in for a set. I won't use polyurethane...too noisy! "Polyurethane must rotate with suspension travel (unlike twisting, elastic action of rubber) new friction points were created which again caused premature wear along with annoying squeaks."...VERY annoying!!

I've used the PST Polygraphite bushings on ALL of my T-Birds, and I LOVED them!! Great improvement on handling without the squeaks!
