One of the guys on here, 95cummins12valve, just rebuilt his front end using urethane bushings. He bought all of them at the local NAPA. PM him and pick his brain. Tell him Brian sent cha!

I just put graphite filled bushings from Energy Suspension Parts Dealer, Specializing in Energy Suspension Bushings Suspension Components. in my 96. I also replaced the sway bar bushings with graphite filled polyurethane. I noticed a vast improvement. If I had it to do again (and I probably will) I would look at the welded tubular replacement control links. The stock links are stamped sheet metal with pressed in tubes for the bushings. I have not held any in my hands but the tubular replacements look to be stronger and easier with which to work. They, of course, also cost more.

The easiest way I've found to do it when there is no access to a torch is to take a holesaw and cut most of the rubber bushing out. Then you can take an air chisel and knock the rest of it out easily.
