    Does anyone know of the best stock body bushing kit out there. Working with 1974 Jeep Cj5. One that isn’t confusing easy to understand and install

    I used energy and liked it. I would honestly stay away from rubber. The poly felt so much more stable

    If you want to save a few bucks and make your own body mounts this fiberglass Jeep tub company sells a foot long hard rubber tube with a 3/8 hole down the center. You then cut the size of bushing you want off the tube with a hack saw or sawzall.

    I had poly mounts on my CJ once but took them off because the mounts were so hard there was no isolation from engine vibration or road imperfections.

    +1 on rubber body mounts. Softer than poly to absorb some of the thrashing these rigs are so well known for.

    Rubber is what I used on mine Keep them sprayed with Fluid -Film and you'll love the feeling.

    I couldn't find rubber ones but they sound a lot more sensible for dirt roads. Hopefully I won't hate my poly ones, haven't taken it out yet.

    I used the Energy Suspension ones for my 74 and have had no issues.
