Re: Anyone got a part number for Energy Suspension bushes?

I'm at work and have a catalog in hand. what are you looking for?

I'm an idiot.

Those arms use a metal sleeve. There is no rubber in them.

The only bushings they offer for arms are the rear trailing arms

Currently laughing very hard as I am pretty much a ringer for Dr Evil....

So.... I am looking for upper and lower control arm bushes. Now it might be that they are not Energy Suspension, what would you recommend?

And yes I deserved that!

I forget that they don't use rubber or poly bushings on those arms.

See here

I can get you part numbers for the rear trailing arms.

dunno. Unless they have the 67 or newer control arms with the rubber bushings.

If your truck is a factory 66 without modifications, then you don't have anything available in a poly bushing.

Re: Anyone got a part number for Energy Suspension bushes?

All C10, 20 and 30 trucks from '63-'72 use steel bushings on the control arm shafts. The '73-'87 front suspensions use rubber control arm shaft bushings that can be changed for urethane bushings if desired. If you have seen someone install urethane control arm bushings on their '63-'66 truck, they have changed to the '73-'87 control arms.
