Default Duster front suspension

Anyone willing to discuss the front end setup on an a-body mopar? Upper-lower control arms and strut rod for easy front end travel.

I use hard Duro bushings where available and make sure everything
moves with very little effort. If you can find the Direct Connection
Manual read it.......Old but good info!

Prothane makes a good kit for the front on the Abody cars. I have used on a couple of cars.

Someone was making needle bearing replacements, ( Lamb ? ) , mostly for the Hemi guys. Also heard it was a little pricey.

Anyone know if there is a performance difference between prothane, needle bearings, and Delrin Bushings?

Due to less compliance, Delrin and needle bearings will outperform Polyurethane based bushings. Delrin has a higher tensile strength and lower deflection when compared to Polyurethane

I made some bronze bushings with grease fittings but I'm afraid they might bind with front end travel because of strut bar. Anyone have an opinion or facts if this will happen?
