Powerflex Roll Centre Adjuster PFF5-131G FOR MINI GENERATION 1 R50, R52, R53

£116.28 (£96.90 excl. VAT)

PFF5-131G is a straightforward way to change the virtual roll centre of the car to increase resistance to body roll and correct suspension geometry on lowered vehicles. Lowering the car will change the angle of the front wishbone causing suspension compression even before the suspension moves. Our roll centre adjuster kit will restore the original roll centre on these cars and includes a 5mm spacer for fine-tuning and to cater for different lowered amounts (N.B. The spacer is only suitable for 17-inch wheels and larger). Our kit includes longer High Tensile bolts to accommodate the additional thickness of the ball joint assembly. *Ball joint NOT included*. Spacer included for additional adjustment to cater for especially lowered vehicles and 17 and above wheel sizes. “

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.
