The upper arm on the passenger side shifted on the bushings. I rebuilt these about 15 years ago. Car has only seen about 5-6k miles. Rubber looks to be good. Do they glue the bushing to the metal? the shells didn't move, just the rubber moved forward causing tire rub.

Anyways, thinking about going with polyurethane bushings? and suggestions?

What brand of bushings, so we can all not buy those? Never had that happen with a set of Moog bushings, but there's always a first. The one car I had that had polyurethane bushings in it, I didn't like the ride, so I pressed those out and put originals in. Uncommon problem.

If it makes you feel any better mine just started to rot and shift. It has about the same mileage & time frame. The newer rubber bushings are more of a composite and are designed better. Stay with the rubber anything else is to harsh on the stock front ends. 15 years not to bad on the bushing...pot holes age wear & tear climate etc... Where do you live?
