From memory, I'm pretty sure Clarky used the poly bushes, give him a PM and ask him to respond. Maybe he is on holidays.
I looked at them, but just used the cheap Taiwanese jobs, I will ask my son how they are going? I gave the Jeep to him.
Actually it will be interesting, so i definitely will.

I installed two Superpro poly bushes in my front diff
They've been in over a year now
Had to use OEM for the front bolt on stabiliser
Write up in my thread
Still look brand new to me

Thanks guys. Looks like I'll go a set of Superpro bushes so I don't have to do it again for a while. I've got to check out if the 3rd bush has gone or not and decide what to do there. If it's gone it might justify the Jeeperf segment instead. Think I'm going to do the front driveshaft CV joint at the same time too.

I got 2 years out of the last lot of bushes and CV and only a couple of long trips (just got back from the Cape). Not good but hopefully the poly bushes will help everything last a bit longer.

Just had the front diff jeeperf bushs installed so good to hear positive things from Clarky… Last set of OEM type installed 2yrs ago and were V-stuffed after many “difficult” club trips (no touring for me).
Stuffed also describes my 18month old front LCAs which I have also just replaced along with front inner and outer tie-rods… Next time if funds allow jeeperf upgrades all round! (or perhaps just a play TJ, XJ?)

Hey Clarky, and anyone else who has installed the poly bushes...

How is the NVH? Is there an appreciable increase in noise and vibration from them? I don't need them yet but every time I look at that front diff I think that it's a job I only want to do once!

Rob.

Short answer is yes you do notice an increase in NVH.
It felt different when first installed but now its normal to me.
Personally I prefer it, you feel more connected to the road and less isolated from what the suspension is doing.

My wife rarely drives the Jeep but she says it feels the same as it always did

Yes at first I noticed a little more NVH with the Jeeperf bushes and it felt a bit different, but not after a week of driving. It is much better than having the front diff flopping about though and I don't want to do it again either!

I’m getting more noise from one or more of my CVs at the moment… I should just leave the mud terrains on then I don’t hear or feel any of the little noises!

I have had the superpro bushes for a few years now nearly done 100k and they still look great.
