Default front control arm bushings

picked up a set of 03/04 cobra control arms from fast99snake and i am going to put them on next week. while they were out, i was wondering if it would be worth switching out the stock bushings for polyurethane bushings.

what u guys think?

Don't do it, I highly doubt it will make a difference. Plus I believe they have to be pressed out.

My control arms were more work than the IRS cradle bushings. I had to burn them out and it was a bitch. It was very time-consuming to do it all. Do not use urethane for an articulating joint, use delrin. FRPP sells delrin bushings for the control arms.

They also sell extended ball joints (Like the Steela X2) that you can do @ the same time.
