- Provides max articulation
- Will be friendlier on your control arm mounts under max articulation conditions
- Theoretically you’ll never have to replace the bushings; only a concern if you plan to do trails that require max articulation and plan to keep you Jeep for 5+ years.
Poly or rubber bushings wear out, especially under max articulation; I hate replacing bushings, so I went IR.
Sure. And the worst thing (to me) about bushings going bad is the sound. You’ll start hearing clunking and if you’re like me, it’ll drive you crazy until you track down and eliminate the cause. (Of course, it may not be control arm bushings, it could be a shock or track bar or steering components.) Then, you have to remove the control arms and find someone with a million pound press to swap out the bushings. Perhaps if I had enough garage space to leave my Jeep disassembled for a while it wouldn’t be so bad, but I have to do all the work in a day or weekend.Thank you!
