    That is one of the projects I haven't done yet. I know the poly ones would be stronger and last longer, but I will kill myself if they end up sqeaking all the time. Do they make a lot of noise or not??? The Energy Susp ones are what I'm thinking about.

    Ive got polly body mounts and mine dont make any noise .The only dif I see is that they will last along time before wearing out.

    I think there is a Grafite impregnated mount available. Thos should limit the possiblility of noise. Now unless you have a body lift on regular street driving they should not have any real movement so probably be quiet.

    Cool. I drive on the street alot, but I'm going to stay away from a body lift at all costs. I'll give Energy a call and see if they make the graphite ones. Thanks.

    I too have Energy Poly mounts and mine do not squeek. I was told that the black ones are the ones impregneted with graphite, but I was also told that was not true so duno really.....mine have never squeeked and they are black so that is all that really matters[​IMG]

    Sonds good to me :) I use the black ones on the SWB, and the squeek comes from the spring bushings, not the body mounts. Grease lasts about 3 months out in the desert.........creek, squeek, creek....LOL

    Yea, at least with the spring bushings you can get the ORD greasable ones. Thats what I did.

    The set that you are buying, is that a complete set and does it include everything that is needed? Who are you buying them from and how much are you paying? I wanted to get some of those, too as that is the next step in my build up.

    I think LMC and Summit both carry Energy Susp. stuff so I was just going to compare the prices and get the cheapest one. If I was to bet, I'd say that LMC would probably be the best place to shop if you need the bolts and spacers and washers, etc.
