£161.88

This is a replacement part that in our Black material is 200% stiffer than the original rubber bush to withstand increased loading seen by this position on the car. PFF5-1901G provides +/- 0.75 caster offset that can be adjusted on the car for improved steering feel. Additional caster will also create additional negative camber on turn giving improved tyre contact with the road under heavy cornering. For a non-adjustable version of this bush please use PFF5-1901.

WHY POLYURETHANE SUSPENSION BUSHES?

 

Time to do some sums…

WHY POLYURETHANE SUSPENSION BUSHES?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.
