    Hi I need some new bushes and i've been looking for diferent prices and local dealers.

    i'll like to see some opinions about materials. what's the diference between polyurethane bushes and rubber bushes? i know that polyurethane it's better but i'm just asking to see some opinions

    i think the best way to go for me are some polyurethane bushings that a local dealer have but i'm not completly sure about them.

    i'm not interest on OME bushes cause i don't have enought money to buy them but i know they're the best way to go.

    thank's. Andres

    Go with poly trust me. Oh yea and wait till u have to remove the corroded and gross rubber bushings from ur 60. Putting my lift on thatt was the hardest part. Poly if u keep em' greased and take care of em they will be good to u. ( i say grease em b/c if u don't they like to squeek a bit)

    damn...and i thought we were going to talk landscaping. :)

    polyeurathane bushings are the way to go on the wagons especially if they're lifted...they'll help to stiffen up the suspension a tad which these heavy things need, plus they'll last much longer.

    One more vote to poly bushings .. buy it very cheap at MAF or SOR .. if you can with graphite.

    Yup. The poly last longer and make things tighter. Where is the cheapest and best place to buy them?
