Newbie needs poly bushings

Hi all. Newbie to the forum. 2002 wj with 2 inch budget boost. Rusty's lower rear control arms. I cant seem to find the oem specs for the lower rear control arm bushings. I want to replace the rubber bushings with polyurethane. Jeep doesnt seem to be of any help(no reply). Sooooo, does anyone know the width, length and flange size of the round bushing? Or any suggestions as to where I can get the specs?
Thanx for any help.

Re: Newbie needs poly bushings

im going to fill my front with windoweld from autozone. What im going to do it just new arms with new bushings in them and clean the bushings really well to remove all the grease that maybe on them. then i will simply fill the new bushings with the windoweld, so it will be a new bushing with the rubber bushing in it and all the open space will be filled with the windoweld. so in return should make it a lot stifffer...


just a thought i couldnt find any polys for the bushings when i looked so this is what i am about to do in a month. im going to do it to the rear ones as well..

Re: Newbie needs poly bushings

After some research I was only able to find kits for the ZJ. Im not sure if they share any suspension components, but the fit guide for Prothane and Energy do not list the WJ. Quadratec has replacement parts if you dont want to caulk you bushings lol although alot of people have used window weld. I have read about it but cant give any results on it.

Re: Newbie needs poly bushings

Check out www.tein.com and look up super pro bushes, these are poly bushes made in Australia. They list kits for the WJ front and rear suspension. Also, look at their home page http://www.fulcrumsuspensions.com.au/superpro.html where there's loads of info. Hope this helps?
