energy suspension poly bushings?

Anyone have experience with Energy Suspension bushings?

The price when direct ordered from them for spring & shackle bushings is pretty good.

Curious if anyone has dealt with them.?.

I got a set for the front end of my 7 through Morris awhile back. I have two different brands of red poly bushings on my 5, one of them Energy Suspension. I can't see any difference in quality, appearance or performance. I like them fine.

I use them and Daystar. I belive they are the same as the look, feel, and part numbers seem to be the same.

As a side note, I find poly bushings work best in the springs (main eye and shackles), transmission mounts, and sway bar mounts. I still use rubber for the engine and body mounts. Better feel and less vibrations.

I haven't used them for Jeep parts, but i have used their front end kits a number of times over the years on performance cars without issue. Products have been as advertised, installed easy, fit well and functioned as designed.

I have a full set of their bushings in my Jeep now and have for about 13 years. Despite some rust stains and some slight drying out of some surface areas, I'm still going to re-use some of it, actually just the dust boots for the tie rod ends and the sway bar and disconnect brackets. What pisses me off about the company is they stopped producing yellow, and other colors for that matter, and only offer red and black.

Thanks for the feedback. I ended up going with daystar instead. No one at energy suspension could give me the dimensions on their bushings. I have an unknown lift so I needed they're measurements for a particular set before I ordered. Poor customer service lost the sale. Daystar gave the specs in 5 min.

Merry Christmas!
