From what I heard
Prothane=STIFF AS ----, BOUNCY RIDE, GREAT FOR THE TRACK
Energy=Stiffer then stock, Softer then Prothane, still an allright ride, last longer then OEM

Thanks for the info. I think what I'm gonna do is raise the car up, smear the goo, then lower it down and get my hand under there and re-smear it around so it dries at the correct angle. I'll just let it sit for 2-3 days. The tow is so bad because the bushings are so shot, I don't even enjoy driving it.

i`ve worked on a few car with these aftermarket bushings.
it is a BITCH to work on them since all the arms are "tightned" together and doens`t want to move.

I've got some ES bushings ready to install on my car, they seem to be of high quality.

Im wondering if they are all the same, civic/acura ones. I only ask cause the rear trailing arms are from a 92 GSR with ABS. However i dont think it should be different.

here is a pic



im thinking bout purchasing them from summit and i thinkg Jegs has em too. Ill see who has em cheaper.

DO any of you have em? how do you like em?
Is it a plastic suspension bushing? I am using an OEM part. Part #:18026759. I just bough it last week.

I have Energy Suspension poly bushings. I installed the rear trailing arm bushings in my 93 4door civic and used the 2 large washer and bolt trick. Id buy the energy suspension trailing arm bushings again, they work great. I have the master kit on my 93 4door, its a good quality kit and does tighten the ride up on an old civic like mine. Some bushings are little tricky to install unless you're creative witha hacksaw, torch and knife, or have a shop press. The rear trailing arm bushings where easy to install, Pass a long bolt through a large washer, and pass that through the bushing. pass the end of the bolt through the trailing arm, and through another large washer on the other side that is bigger than the hole trailing arm. put a nut on the end of the bolt and tighten it up. it pulls the bushing right into the trailing arm and thats it. now hammer in that hollow pin that you cut/burned out and make sure its oriented correctly b/c it only works one way as far as i remember.
