    A different vehicle but I can say from experience that poly is only slightly longer lasting than the oem rubber. I have changed the bushings on my old binder for the 3rd time last year. First set was Rancho, they didn't make it a year.
    Last two sets have been Energy and the first of the two sets made it 3 years.
    Nicest thing about poly is the ease of changing them.

    Make sure you ask that they balance all 4 too. If you come in for a free rotation and air check a lot of times they will only balance the ones going to the front. Silas isn't the only one who has worked there ;)

    They take the 2 fronts and go straight back with them and then take the RR to the LF and LR to the RF, unless they are directional or staggered of course.

    Kudos to Jerry at BAMF. Had a couple minor issues with the skid and emailed him on a weekend. He got back to me and delivered a solution; on a Sunday no less. Highest marks for this vendor.

    I forsee a post in the LEO section with a heading that goes something like
    "Tix for windshield tint. Why can't pigs go arrest real criminals"....

    Seems in NC you can tint your windshield...it just can't extend below the AS1 line or no lower than 5" below the top edge, which yours clearly does. Good luck with your upcoming traffic stop...

    Im aware its illegal and have been pulled for it, state trooper told me he wasn't going to hassle me about it. Local LEOs all have tinted windshields so they don't ticket for it unless your being a douche and acting dumb.
