What do vehicle bushes do?
As the vital link between you and the road, your vehicles suspension bushes directly influences the steering and braking performance. Often over-looked by the average punter, suspension system bushes are one area where both small and large improvements can lead to a safer and more enjoyable driving experience.
Fitted to the control arms, sway bars, panhard rod and other suspension components a suspension bush can be a rubber bushing or made of polyurethane. Polyurethane is preferred over rubber bushes when replacing suspension bushes as these don't have the poor memory properties of rubber and are a longer lasting alternative. Coupled with high load bearing capabilities, increased tensile strength and chemically resistant to oil, grease and weathering make polyurethane bushes a great choice.
How do I know when my suspension system bushes need replacement?
Some common signs may be felt as vibration or a loose steering wheel, abnormal noises when going over bumps or even the clunk of metal on metal contact to advise you have worn suspension bushes on your car.
Designed as a cushion between parts, your expensive suspension components bear the brunt of this friction and movement when unattended and over time will place undue wear and stress on coil springs, shock absorber mounts and ball joints.
Fitting higher quality bushes to areas such as the sway bar link and lower control arm provide more direct response and feedback whether in performance vehicles or daily drivers. As a huge influence on vehicle stability, steering precision and braking efficiency worn bushings are detrimental to vehicle performance.
