So I can only assume you know of a better product than the Delrin /poly bushings??:no:
Absolutely, either a Del-alum bushing or an AFCO type solid steel bushing with synthetic grease is a billlion times better for what he's going to use them for. Anything else?

They are not normal polyurethane. They are Delrin with a thermoplastic elastomer modifier. It's good stuff if you have a street/strip setup. Delrin is an acetal and one of the toughest polymeric materials made. It's used in aerospace as a metal substitute.

Definitely many times stronger than stock and stronger than conventional polygraphite.

I have a Delrin/Polyurethane bushing in my wishbone track locator. The race-only joint is a solid rod-end but I drive my car on the street too.

If your plans are race-only, you may want do go to a metallic (more harsh) solid setup but these bushing are as good as it gets for the best of both worlds. They are not advertised as race-only control arms. 99% of the people out there wouldn't want them if they were. They can definitely take some abuse though. I think the control arms look like a pretty good deal.

Plus, you can always change the bushings out if you don't like them and still use the control arms.;)
