Hyperflex bushings experience

I was told by many people that Hyperflex bushings are high performance ones and they perform. I did fall for that and nine months later had to turn back to stock Honda bushings.

Why? - I'll leave it up to my pictures to tell the story. Leave your comment below if you have an opinion

This is NOT front-end lube - it's the original lube that came with the bushings.
The problem was - bushings fit like a pencil in a tin can. How do you think the car handles in situation like this?

I'm going to go with Prothane. Nothing but good responses (except for the du-rigeur squeaks). Squeaks can be eliminated by re-lubing about every 24 months.

Now, do I see standard front-end lube on the bushings? Big no-no. Use polyurethane lube exclusively.

Oh, and one more item. What exactly was/is the problem? Shrinkage? Distortion? Warping of the bushes? Thanks, Joe

That's the way they work but shouldn't end that fast. These usually work around 3-5years without issues. Seems that lot of dirt has gotten between bushing and cylinder.
Wrong Brand

Nope, It was not cheap Chinese one.
I got a phone call (yes, a phone call) from Hyperflex rep. and they did try to make me put the pictures down saying I gonna be sued (did not say for what).
I told them to go ahead and sue me as I still have the bushings till this day and I'd be glad if they paid for all the expenses associated with bushings replacement.
They never called back. So it's original Hyperflex alright.
wrong brand.

Well, not too many miles

I's been a while since it happened. I'd say probably 5-7K miles.
I was "Hyperflex bushings master kit" - the most popular on the street.
I have noticed from day one that my car is out. THought I'll take time to adjust.
In two months I was sure to take my CRX back to stock bushings and it took me another 6 months to actually do it.
Worst was the winter time driving. I thought my bushings shrunk to nothing as my Rex was not controllable at all.
Damn revealing

Pictures worth a lot of words...
In 9 months? How many miles? What kind of hyperflex kit is that?
