I can only find 2 brands of the rearward front control arm bushings....Dorman and NAPA. The Dorman are about 1/2 the price. Any experience with either of these or other recommendations?

Also, I'm doing the O2 sensors.. I learned recently these can really impact power and fuel economy when they get old ( we gained about 12% better mileage when replacing them on our 2007 Jeep). I know some cars are pretty picky about these sensors...I plan on getting NTK models as of now.. Any recommendations?

Also, engine mounts....I've used 2 OEM and 2 NAPA on my last rebuild. Any other good reliable alternatives? The OEM are probably not available, and the NAPA are fairly pricey. However, the Anchor, FVP, Westar, etc. ( from Rock Auto) seem too cheap around $12.00 each or so. Any recommendations?

I put in the crappy Anchor brand mounts, two were made in China and one made in India.
In about a week they were as sloppy as the thirty year old OEM ones I just replaced. I did clean up and save my original ones, and may try putting in the polyurethane inserts to stiffen them up.

I've had good luck using Bosch O2 sensors in my Escorts. Once I got cheap and bought an off brand from eBay, I think it lasted about a year.
