Default Front Suspension arm rubber bush

Any good brands for these or certain type, different type of material?

I appear to be replacing mine every year going with OE ones.

Kind of a vague question since there are several bushings to choose from. Are you referring to the sway bar bushings, control arm bushings or maybe even the sway bar end links. We need more info, man.

have you tried polyurethane?
I have the complete Energy Suspension kit in my car and like it, the black bushings. Some have used the Prothane brand with good results as well.

You most likely have a problem that is causing the premature wear of the bushings. I would recommend to first find out the cause before replacing another bushing.
Installing a harder bushings may cause other suspension problems or early worn parts.

To be honest, i am not entirely sure. this is what comes up on the MOT as needing replacing. I always took it to a garage to do who use OE parts, but it's like a yearly thing. Roads are bad here where I am though.
