I'm looking at getting new suspension bushings and figure I would get a complete kit and replace them all at once. My question is should I go with Prothane or Energy Suspension? Where one kit lacks, it makes up for by having something the other kit doesn't. Does anyone have one of these kits?

Hardest would be the Front Control-Arm Bushings, followed by the Front Sway-Bar Bushings.

I was going to do mine sometime soon. Jason I'll get with you and do both cars at the same time, if cool.

No, Prothane is available in both Black and Red.

like Michaelxi said......the control arms would be the hardest then the front sway bar....otherwise they're all easy, especially the rear suspension pieces
