aiight I'm trying to get these engery suspension bushings in these Chrome lower control arms. One went in fine, but other is bending all up. I even tried to stick a piece of wood in between, but the metal is still bending. WTF :mad: :mad: :mad:

were they plated with the bushings out??? if so, the chrome may be hindering the reinstallation of the bushings. It makes the hole too small, even if it's only a little. You may have to lightly remove the chrome from the inside of the holes if it's in there...

Yeah, the stock ones are pretty crappy. For the wifes cutty I am putting in a set of Metco upper and lowers. They are pricey at like $250 for each set, but they look great and are mad tough.
