Control Arm Bushing Replace

Can someone recommend some good bushings to replace my worn out one.
Right now its only the passenger side one that rattling , I figure I should replace them both. Any advise would be helpful.

I replaced mine with neverenoughauto's prothane ones. There is some debate whether they are better than stock but I haven't had a problem with them. Prothane 7-777 Prothane Control Arm Bushings | eBay Otherwise you can get stock and save some $$!

Anything polyurethane won't last as long as the stock rubber bushings. Some people on css.net have them wearing out after a year. But if you plan on racing, they are firmer so that's an advantage.

Poly sucks.

Either oem replacement, or Powell Spherical.

I've heard a lot of bad things about the poly bushings as well. Just get stock replacements or spherical ones like willbeck recommends. The thing to remember is that with Spherical bushings you'll need to grease them every so often to prevent wear.
