All in 1 front bushings kit advice?

Does anybody have any advice on an all in 1 front bushing kit I can pick up for my entire front end? I've noticed some wear-and-tear on some of them, so I figure after 15 years of service, they might need to be replaced.

I drive my Jeep to and from work in the worst DC roads you can think of, so comfort is key. Would sacrifice super kick a*s polyurethane for something a lot more squishy and comfortable.

Any and all suggestions are welcome, if you can provide a link that would be awesome as well.

Thanks,
Tonto

Contact Kolak here on the forum or kolak@aol.com he has great pricing on anything you might need, OEM Mopar rubber bushings, Moog, etc...

Don't overlook your Control Arm bushings. They contribute a lot to overall ride quality.

An alternative would be rockauto.com but really do contact Nick (kolak) he'll hook you up.

I'd like a whole swap out of anything rubber underneath there...give that a shot for a slightly better ride before I do something more drastic.

Most vehicles Moog offers "problem solver" bushings in materials that are a good compromise between stock jeep and aftermarket poly. I think that type of in-between is used on a lot of new car bushings, you see them as blue or pink quite often.

Also, I have bought a fair number of standard moog parts only to discover the premium problem solver part inside. If you can open boxes at the parts store it pays to know the difference. I think they cover supply problems by putting the premium part in standard boxes.

Beware cheap china rubber bushings, you'll be replacing one or more after 40k.

Avoid trying to swap the control arm bushings. Much easier (and NOT much more expensive) to replace control arms with bushings already installed.

I didn't realize he actually sent me a message ages ago. I've got to get up underneath there and see what's worn away and let him know.

Thanks,
Tonto
