i changed mine to poly bushings, the hardest bushing to change on the control arm is the little bushing. and i cant really tell that it squeaks or not. but the handling is way better.
Ours are 80,000 miles old and original, and couldn't possibly squeak any louder... what are the part numbers of the replacements? Was it difficult?

GermanAutoParts.com i used the poly bushings....my car had over 300,000 miles when i changed them. if you have a vice and a bfh you should be good with the bigger bushings. the little ones were a pita. i smashed my hand with my 3lb mini sledge, trying to get the little bushings out. but i got it done.

the big circle one came out easy but was a bitch going in, and the little one was a bitch getting out but it went together with the pressure of my hands.

to get the big circle one out, i just crushed the edges in with a punch and a hammer and then it fell out, then used the press to get the new bushing started straight and then finished it with a firm smack with a little sledge. the little one i smacked it to one side with a hammer, then used a hack saw to cut the rubber lip off the bushing, then i pushed it halfway out, grabbed the other end of the bushing in the vise and twisted it off the control arm..

but so far i haven't heard any squeaks. i lubed the shit outta them. i used the red poly mk2-mk4 bushings on bfi's site.

this is the whole kit

not a bad trade off i say. i did his clutch for him and gave me this as payment. i feel like its a big step in the parts gathering stage. next on the list is either eurodyne mastro or a short block that someone local has provided it checks out at the machine shop
