PowerAlign Wheel Mounting Guide Pin BMW E Chassis
£26.34 (£21.95 excl. VAT)
Available singularly to suit a specific vehicle or as a handy 4-piece workshop kit, our new PowerAlign Wheel Mounting Guide Pins are designed to allow the safer mounting and easy alignment of heavy alloy wheels on most common cars to use lug bolts. The individual pins come supplied in a reusable twist tube and the 4-piece workshop kit is supplied with a steel storage case for pride of place in your toolbox.Simply thread the appropriate pin size into one of the bolt holes on the wheel hub. The wheel can then be lifted and placed on the guide pin, and easily slid into place on the hub; keeping the bolt holes aligned for other bolts to be inserted and tightened.This reduces the awkward and back-straining process of holding the wheel in place with one hand whilst lining up and threading in the first bolt; thus, reducing the risk, hassle, and strain of mounting wheels.Proven using simulated and real-world testing, the new mounting pins usehigh-strength CNC-machined AISI 303 Stainless Steel, some 50% stronger than plated mild steel, to ensure durability and resilience in a workshop environment, and are supplied with colour-coded 3D-printedprotective sleeves for ease of identificationandanodised 2011-T6 aluminium caps to absorb knocks and prevent damage to the wheel, unlike others on the market.Please clickhereto view all sizes available and fora wider-reaching application list in the form of anew user-friendly drop-down search function.
WHY POLYURETHANE SUSPENSION BUSHES?
Time to do some sums…
Polyurethanes have been with us since the late 1930s, however, recent advances have now made it possible to engineer very special properties into this exciting material.
Suspension bushes are some of the most highly stressed components fitted to a motor car. They undergo enormous strains and in the most arduous of conditions with no maintenance or lubrication.
The material they are manufactured from is a rubber compound containing natural products that deteriorate with age. It becomes softer and more pliable, resisting the forces placed on it less and less. Therefore allowing more and more movement of suspension components and offering less and less control over the suspension geometry.
This in turn causes accelerated tyre wear, braking instability, and poor handling. This is the single biggest reason you can instantly tell the difference driving a three-year-old car compared to a showroom new one. However, even new cars will benefit from POWERFLEX bushes because of the superior design they offer much more effective control of the suspension components to a much greater extent than normal rubber items.
With the technological advances in this material, it has been possible to overcome the common problem associated with harder bushes which is increased noise. By correctly engineering the polyurethane compound, bushes can be made 25-30% stiffer than new rubber items but with exactly the same noise absorbing properties.
- POWERFLEX bushes make sense.
- POWERFLEX for improved performance.
- POWERFLEX for increased safety.
- POWERFLEX for prolonged tyre life.
