The Powerflex Upper Engine Bushing slides into the upper mount on early generation 1 cars and is designed to stiffen the factory mount and stop excess rocking caused by the engine itself. For a full package pair it with the front bushing to eliminate all movement. Most of the movement is located at the rear main bushing so you may want to start with one bushing and see how it feels.
Powerflex polyurethane bushings are designed to decrease the amount of deflection in your car's suspension for better handling, more driver feedback, and better tire wear. Powerflex uses premium polyurethane materials for minimal NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) and increased longevity over the stock rubber bushings.
Bushings come in pre-determined durometers (measured hardness) from Powerflex to work best in each particular location. The street bushing will work best for mostly everyone. They have been spec'd by Powerflex to be the best durometers for your application and are 70A (Yellow), 80A (Purple), and 95A (Black).
Powerflex copper-based grease is supplied with every dynamic product. We suggest using only a copper-based grease for lubrication. Due to grooves and knurls cast into the material to hold the lubricant, bushings will rarely need re-lubing. We do not suggest using an "anti-seize" product for lubrication.
