When rebuilding a front end (66 coupe) what do you guys like? Graphite, polyurethane, midolyne, or plain old rubber?
Thanks for your thoughts,
Glen

Unless your into wearing kidney belts while driving, stock rubber bushing will do just fine. I do prefer poly for the sway bar end links however, for that little extra bit of body roll resistance.

I did a complete suspension rebuild with Canadian Mustang and their midolyne bushings.
I like them alot!!
No squeaks and firmer then rubber.

did you get the big set? Is the ride too rough like some people say about the poly-graphite?

I don't have any experience with Poly.
But I like the ride I have it's not rough.
Also watch out what firmness of shocks you put on. High presser shocks will stiffen up the ride a bit more then low pressure.
It all depends on the how you are going to be driving it. Street cruiser make it comfortable. Road racing, make it the best possible.Good luck.
