Q: Body Mount Selection
Now it’s time to restore my front suspension, my question is what bushings to use. Plain rubber, urethane, PST-Polygraphite, nylon bushings??
It would be very interesting to hear your experience regarding road noise, squeaks and stiffness.
A: My horrendous experience with polyurethane dictates that I never try THAT again! The car was almost as stiff as a hard-tailed motorcycle, and squeaked like crazy. I also drove that 66 GTO that MuscleCar Review did a restification on using polyurethane, same problem there. To convince me that the graphite loaded product works is going to be a VERY hard sell!
The original rubber works best for all-around comfort; I didn’t mind giving up a little for the steel/nylon bushings to get a noticable handling gain. Good luck.
