No experience with Energy Suspensions but I can vouch for the H&T. The car handles much better and just feels great overall. Install was pretty easy too.

If you were to replace the same componenets with either manufacturer, I doubt you would feel a difference. Either one will provide an inprovement of stock. Most MR2 owners use the Prothane ones b/c most of the retailers sell them. I have them on my MR2 and like them. I had the Energy Suspensions on my GTP and liked those too.

I would get the kit that replaces the most bushings, or the one that is the most cost effective.

p.s. Where are you getting the Energy Suspension ones from?

any affect on the highway from the bushings? specifically I'm wanting to know if the car "wanders" less on the highway with the performance bushings, (or maybe simply just new ones in liue of old tired bushings), maybe your car never had these problems to begin with..?

If your car "wanders" on the freeway, that has nothing to do with bushings and everything to do with a bad alignment.
