    poly or aluminum subframe bushings?

    I am ordering poly suspension bushings, but undecided on subframe bushing material...

    Poly or aluminum?
    Anyone with either installed?
    Benefits of one vs other?

    Cost is not a concern on this, just want what's best.

    Thanks

    I didn't know they made Aluminum ones, sounds like a noisy nightmare. I'd get the polly. I've heard that they can squeak if you don't grease them during installation though.

    I have run energy's on other platforms and loved them, a must have for me. Grease is def important. A friend had prothane with not enough grease and his car sounded like a lego machine.

    I have been thinking poly for the noise factor, but I have to think and rethink things

    I would only go with the solids if you're going to be serious about tracking the car. I would go with the poly bushings.
