Should I use rubber or polygraphite rear control arm bushings. I already have 4 rubber ones, but I found out the others would have been cheaper. So should I just order 4 more rubber ones from GM ($50.81) or get 8 Energy Suspension ones for ($82)? The car is a 1970 convertible with a small block, TH350, 12 bolt. It will be used for cruising (no strip time (I don't care to embarrass myself that much)).

Mike,

Although you're not planning to use your car on the strip, the polygraphite bushings will help your handling. The dollar difference is small and the labor is the same. I don't get any noise from mine.

I tried but they won't take them. I ordered the polys anyway.

Read through Global West on line catlog,suspension systems section, They do not recommend polyurethane on the rear,they will bind.Use new rubber bushings.

Global's catlog has a lot of interesting tips on steering,suspension and brakes
