Universal Hourglass Shock Eye (9.8109R) by Energy Suspension®. Color: Red. Quantity: 2 per Pack. Inner Diameter: 0.75". Energy Suspension offers replacement round polyurethane bushings that mount within the open, circular ends of shock absorbers. No matter what design your shock absorber ends have, you’ll find bushings sized and shaped to meet your needs. Bushing sets exceed factory OEM levels of cushioning and holding power, and resilient polyurethane construction offers greater resistance to deterioration from road grime, oil leaks, and salt slush without drying out or crumbling the way rubber mounts can.
- Choose sets for bayonet end style, half- and full-sized bushings for hourglass style, straight eye, and large race sizes
- High-density polyurethane provides a superior cushioning effect and resists degrading, drying up, and crumbling the way rubber mounts can
- Polyurethane provides a greater resilience to crushing or deforming under pressure
- Allows shock absorbers to stay fixed in position better instead of rattling and twisting out of alignment
- Excellent for off-road use
- Energy Suspension high-pressure endurance tests made in a range of extreme temperature conditions show HYPER-FLEX polyurethane lasts 5 to 10 times longer than conventional rubber
- 2-year warranty against manufacturing defects (not normal wear)
- Proudly manufactured in the United States
This is a set of polyurethane bushings that mount within the round eyes at both ends of your shock absorbers to dampen noise, vibration, and harshness. Sized and shaped to match OEM specifications for easy bolt-on installation, these bushings eliminate the creaking noise and excess play that comes from worn and degraded rubber ones. Because polyurethane provides a greater resilience to crushing or deforming under pressure, it allows shock absorbers to stay fixed in position better rather than rattling and twisting out of alignment. If you’ve got aggressive driving or off-roading in mind, these bushings will truly hold up under duress. Choose bushings sets for bayonet end style shock absorber eyes as well as half- and full-sized bushings for hourglass style, straight eye, and large race type applications.
Polyurethane construction provides stronger, more resilient cushioning to prevent harsh vibrations from being transferred to the passenger area, and its durable construction will not collapse, deform, or crumble the way rubber mounts can. Polyurethane offers the ability to stand up and perform extremely well under extreme temperatures and resist degrading after being exposed to road grime, salt, even leaking oils or other vehicle fluids. Energy Suspension proudly manufactures all components in the United States, and backs them with a 2-year warranty against failure due to manufacturing defects.
Founded in the early 1980s in San Clemente, California, Energy Suspension has specialized in the development and improvement of polyurethane, and has always been a believer in finding ways to use it to create products that improve automotive performance. Since the company’s earliest days, their mission has been to be number one in quality, product lineup, and customer service when it comes to polyurethane bushings, mounts, and other vibration-dampening grommets. Today, their worldwide presence, loyal yet expanding customer base, and industry-wide respect show their efforts have paid off. Energy Suspension has achieved many firsts in the world of polyurethane suspension products, and CARiD offers best prices on many of them here. In an independent test done by Mopar Muscle magazine, a late model Dodge Challenger Hemi was fitted with Energy Suspension polyurethane bushings throughout all steering and suspension components. While the ride was still comfortable after the change, the improved Challenger’s lap times dropped consistently from 76 seconds with OEM rubber to 74 seconds with the polyurethane bushings. Their more resilient nature resisted crushing and warping under pressure – in turn, leading to reduced body lean and better tire grip which allowed faster speeds around turns. Considering races are often won by a fraction of a second, it’s easy to see the significant benefits that Energy Suspension bushings can bring to your car or truck.
