I need to fix my control arm bushings and are planning on changing to brand new control arms with bushings. I've seen a couple of mixed messages on the IPD Control Arms which I was thinking of buying.
Does anyone have first hand experience with these? If they are not good which ones do you suggest?

The original OEM LCA bushings lasted 10 years and 100k miles on my car, can't say I've read of any aftermarket ones lasting that long besides maybe polyurethane. I think the one thing most people here will agree with is that the Meyle LCAs are junk and last a year or two, so avoid those and you should be okay with either OEM, IPD, or poly.

I got about 80K out of my first set and am now getting ready to replace them again now that I'm up past 160K miles. With that kind of feel and longevity I don't mind going OEM or comparable again.

I'm going to go with the FCP urethane ones. They took out the old poly rear bushing and just slapped in a regular one. Supposed to improve steering feel.
