I plan on using Bill's strut rod kit on my Dart. Any suggestions on what to use for the lower control arm bushings, rubber or poly?

I always say stock rubber. The strut rod will do fine holding the arm where it belongs, and the poly lower bushing isn't really how it works. The rubber actually twists with the arm motion, while the poly bushing won't twist at all, it has to slide on it's mating surfaces - it usually ends up binding up or getting half squished out. So the regular rubber bushing works great with no fuss.

Thanks Bill.

I thought that I had heard the stock rubber type was the way to go, but couldn't remember why.

Any tips on pressing in the new bushing?
