Do the roller spring perch make noise? was deciding on them or performance bushing ones from CJ Pony C$DZ-3388-HP?

Originally Ford made with bronze bushings then switched to rubber. Why, rubber is cheaper. You will not notice any harshness, noise or any other objectional traits. What you will notice is a more compliant ride. My whole front suspension is all steel bearing. No rubber or poly anywhere. If I gave you a ride n my car you probably wouldn't know if I didn't say anything.

Yep. Nobody notices smooth and quiet rides, they just notice rough and squeaky ones. ;)

It's also possible to convert your old perches to rollers yourself if you have such skills and tools.
