    My vote would be polyurethane, but that's just me.

    Thanks. I've never reolaced them. It looks like a lot of people torch the old ones out. Is that the way to go or do i get a ball joint press kit to push em out?

    Didn't reuse my old lcas. Can't help I'm sorry. However mine were seized in like no one's business.

    Are talking front suspension control arms? When I did mine in the tundra, I stuCK with just or rubber bushings. If you can't keep the eccentrics lubricated they work just fine for a dd.

    On my tacoma, I put in whiteline poly bushings in the lcas, have camburg ucas so poly all around. Very free flowing suspension. Which is great for wheeling and beating on it. But for my tundra I wanted a smooth and easy going ride quality... so I stuck with rubber.

    I have pictures of my lcas in my build. Reinforced my arms too while the bushings were pressed out. That was a long day
