It’s true that in general a quality bushing set can help a car handle better and steer more precisely, but you can’t overlook the NVH benefits, too; a bushing refresh can help isolate out road noise and take some of the creaks and clunks out of components, as well as give your beloved whip some new spring in her step. These are perks Energy Suspension has been espousing for over three decades, and among its many applications has developed a master set of its Hyper-Flex polyurethane bushings and mounts for the third generation (2008 to 2014) Subaru Impreza WRX hatchback and sedan.
Energy’s Hyper-Flex Master Set includes front and rear control arm bushings, front and rear anti-sway bar bushings with end-links, steering rack bushings, a manual shifter bushing set and transmission cross-member mounts. Engineered for low deflection, Energy says its product provides gains in performance handling and delivering more power to the ground. They’re also compliant for the street and made to outlast and outperform rubber bushings and mounts from the factory.
Available in red or black polyurethane, the Hyper-Flex System Master Set for the 2008 to 2014 Subaru Impreza WRX retails for around $470, or components can also be purchased separately. Contact Energy Suspension toll free 888-292-1250 or check out www.EnergySuspension.com for all the details.
