Seon I replaced my '70 Chevelle with poly, but when I had the front end align, the tech said that the poly squeeked too much and they prefered replacing the bushings with rubber. BTW, the original rubber bushing I removed..some 32 years old didn't look bad. When I go to replace the bushings on the other cars, I'll go with rubber. Just my 2 cents.

54 Chevy I did an entire front and rear end of a 68" Camaro and loved the performance when feeling frisky - hated the ride when cruzing. It really depends on what your going to be doing more of. The ones in my rear leaf spring bushings squeaked like crazy. Fine for a truck... not for a Camaro.

edubois My experience with polyurethane is that they last longer, are a little stiffer, and depending on which ones you are replacing, they come in cool colors. I've heard it is recommended that if you start replacing some parts with poly, you should probably try to do all of them, or be consistent if you're doing just a few.

regular bushings or polyurethane bushings?

I'm looking to replace upper and lower A-arm bushings.

any thoughts on which are better? does one squeak more? which do you think is a better fit.
