Reply to "OEM vs Poly Bushes"

The oem style rubber bushings have bonded center and outer so the rubber is stretched/springy in operation, whereas most of the poly bushes on offer don't have such as they are not fixed and rotate around the center tube which leads to the squeak.

Dennis Quella has a style that has a hex steel core so the bushes do not rotate on the center but are forced to act more like the oem rubber ones and as there is no poly on center rotation they don't squeak either!

If it ain't broke don't fix it! Poly bushings are easy as they don't require a press, personally I'd stick with oem rubber, there's nothing wrong with them other than they are 35 years old and need replacing.
