    I have heard that the prothane aftermarket LCA bushings make noise shortly after installing them. And i have also heard that if I do get them, to get the black, and not red. I just ordered these for my 01 civic ex, I ordered black, and they sent me red. Should i worry? Or am I losing my mind with this color thing? thanks

    You get black because they contain more graphite, therefor squeak less. Just grease them regularly and you can keep the squeaking down.
