I went through replacing my bushings with oem only to have them go bad in 2 months. Replaced them with modified 750 bushings and they lasted longer but still went south (@6months). Have had the urethane bushings (from BMP) and they have lasted 12 months so far. No squeaking (used the lube!) and they really ride no different than the 750's.

Will be going through my front end soon.
Wanted opinions on urethane versus modified OEM (750il) bushings. Just don't want it squeaking or too much road noise coming back into the car.

Please.... actual experiece with products preferred.
