I have my 69's entire frontend and subframe bushings out. I am scouring all the catalogues to figure out what replacements to get. I heard that Poly squeaks after the teflon lube wears out, which I don't want to experience. Ricks sells a full poly kit from Prothane, which are not self lubricating. PST sells Graphite impregnated poly which is supposed to be self lubricating. Anyone know if this works over the long haul. Should I just stay with stock rubber all around? Any recommendations where to buy an entire kit in one place that has all the frontend, rear spring and subframe bushings in poly at a decent price? Thanks for your input!

Summit sells Energy Suspension full kits. I picked one up for around $160 and includes a trans mount. What I have been told is if the bushings are lubed well they will not even give the faintest noise. No long term experience though.

I am going to switch to PST polygraphite a-arm bushings. Several people here have had good luck with them. Since switching to low profile tires, I have "blown" several upper a-arm rubber bushings. I guess the tires don't absorb bumps as much, so the a-arm bushings absorb more of the shock now.

Anyone else had this problem??

I replaces my old stuff with a complete Polygraphite Super front end kit from PST a few months ago. 1969 Z28.

1. No squeaks
2. Kit was very complete
3. Car handles MUCH better (I got a new pitman arm and idler arm too).
4. I like it a lot. It has been hassle free since I did the work. I took lots of pictures of my front end rebuild, see site below for more info. P.S. I don't think my ride is any more harsh with the polyurethane. Get a PST kit and forget about it for the next 15 years. Enough said.
