    Seems my Upper control arm Rubber bump stops continue to fail at a miserable rate, on both my R/T, and Belvedere. Squish ,crack, fall apart! Am I alone here. Guess it's time for poly.
    Any recommendations?
    Sick of buying Junk, for such a simple part.

    Could be that your front suspension is lower than stock height and hits the bump stops more often?

      Too much lift use. Suspension hanging too often.

      Poly is what I need. You get these old Dried up rubber relics from the auto parts stores, and they are older than you realize.

      But if the car was lower, then , the UCA would be moving up and away from the stop, not closer. When the suspension hangs down, then it rests on the stops. I need to get some poly bushings to handle the job. This particular car is stored in the air often.
