    Looking to redo the bushing on all my suspension in the near future. I would actually like to upgrade to UMI suspensión but it’s not in the cards just yet. So with that being said, what is a good bushing to upgrade to or do I just replace the rubber with new rubber? Also will be redoing to steering while I am at it.

    For a street cruiser, I like rubber bushings.

    The poly stuff is a bit too harsh.

    I have Global West Del-a-lum bushings, and it's pretty damn stiff, but they don't squeak at all, they're known to not wear, and everything has stayed tight.

    do you want to do all the control arm bushings? thats gonna a be a pain in the rear... at least i hate that job.
    Upgrade to tubular control arms right away!
    any 68-72 A- body will fit

    I put urethane control arm bushings in my last build and was very happy with the ride/handling & looked m/l stock. Not sure if Del-A-Lum was avail or not back then.

    I'm running poly or roto-joints in every bushing location except for body mounts (replaced them with fresh rubber a few years ago). Ride quality is firm but still comfortable. I am also running on a full tubular suspension front/rear with coil overs.

    I honestly find it more comfortable now than it was with the worn out stock components, but I think some of that is down to the coilovers.

    X2 on what Dano said! Our 72 ragtop had that and it was extremely nice, yet firm. Great handling with the added Trans-Am front sway bar.
