Hi guys,
I'm looking to buy a polyurethane control arm bushing kit for the front end of my 95 RMW.
Summit doesn't list one for my car.
I had a look at Energy Suspension's website and found the following:

Energy Suspension kit # 3.3113 (applications listed include 93-96 Cadillac Fleetwood & 80-92 Olds Custom Cruiser)

Energy Suspension kit # 3.3173 (applications listed include 91-96 Caprice & Impala, 91-96 Buick LeSabre)

Has anyone with an RMW used either of these? Which one is the correct one for my car? Does it depend on suspension RPO?

Thanks

They should both work.

Energy Suspension - 3.3113G both sides

Energy Suspension - 3.3113R both sides

Energy Suspension - 3.3167G just bushings with metal shell, one side

Energy Suspension - 3.3167R just bushings with metal shell, one side

Energy Suspension - 3.3173G both sides

Energy Suspension - 3.3173R both sides

I can't remember where you live, but unless it's Vancouver/Vancouver Island, there is nowhere in Canada with roads in good enough condition to allow poly bushings. You will regret your decision.

Does anyone on this thread know where to source body isolation bushings for a '96 RMW?

Agree with Jason on NOT using polyurethane bushings anywhere in the front suspension EXCEPT for the leading lower control arm bushing, which will tighten up the front end a tad with almost no reduction in ride quality.

I put poly bushings in the front of my 9C1 years ago and could never get the thing to stop squeaking.

I have poly bushings in my front end, and they are just fine. I like the stiffness, and they do not squeek. I greased them before I put them in.

You might have to measure them, and get individual ones to match.

Fred-----------The worst paved road you have in Florida is probably better than the best we have in Canada. Sure is the case in my province
