10 bucks sounds like OEM replacment stuff.....with rubber bushings? The Energy Suspension stuff is Polyurethane.

I am going to ask another "dumb" question: Why would one want to replace the stock rubber bushes? What do the 'upgraded' bushes do for you? What penalty do you pay (such as ride quality)?

Thanks again - oh, yes, I have to add my "I cannot believe how helpful the people are on this forum" comment - because it is true! It seems like I learn something helpful virtually every day.

There'* lots of things they help, But basically they keep you in the seat and tires on the ground flatter. Of course a tire that'* flat to the ground has better grip than one that'* leaned funny because you're doing an emergency lane change. The only difference you will notice is a tighter feeling car when you turn sharply. The only downside is that they are supposed to be lubricated every two years, But don't worry, I'm working on a set that never needs lubricated and should out last even the Energy Suspension ones.

10 bux should buy you the Energy suspension setup.

My fronts had the new GM performance endlinks, but they were showing a lil age. Nothing bad though.

But yeah we tried everything on those back ones.... I'm glad we didn't try them at my house..... I guess they never had those ones replaced.
