WHY POLYURETHANE SUSPENSION BUSHES?

Time to do some sums…

Polyurethane has been with us as a specialised plastic for some thirty years. 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 which 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 their 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 prolonged tyre life.
  • POWERFLEX for improved performance.
  • POWERFLEX for increased safety.

Powerflex Black Series bushes are specifically designed for motorsport and extreme use. They are manufactured using a Shore 95 compound polyurethane which is up to 25% more resistant to load than the Powerflex road biased range of bushes and up to 80% stiffer than standard rubber bushes.

If your requirements are purely for the ultimate in handling and chassis performance then Powerflex Black Series are unique, offering the most precise and accurate alignment for your chassis.

  • Performance Developed for ultimate performance using the toughest materials.
  • Precision Engineered for the most accurate control of chassis geometry.
  • Practical Manufactured to be easily fitted without the need for special tools.

Solely because we love the 205 GTi and also stock an extensive range of bushes for them, here’s one hooning across a Welsh mountain road. Could it be considered the original GTi, or did the Mk1 Golf pip it to the post?

Extreme camber can lead to uneven tyre wear! Get your geometry and alignment bang on and all will be well with grip, slip, wear and traction. .

Repost from @chequebookracing using @RepostRegramApp - After moaning about having a car that wouldn't turn into the corner the way i wanted it to and was traction limited exiting the corner, ive replaced all the ball joints and bushes which were 100k old with @powerflexbushes Black Series bushes and ball joints allowing me to run extra negative camber and positive castor, I've replaced the standard open differential with a @3jdriveline race spec plate differential, fitted 40% stiffer @BCracinguk springs to my coilovers and fitted lightweight aluminium R56 rear trailing arms with some @nankangtyreuk AR1s to finish it off.

With the next Armed Forces Race Challenge rounds at Donington Park on 1st Sep 18, a track ive never driven, with a car that is vastly different to what it was before, i thought id do a little testing on an evening session with Opentrack Events Limited.  Very happy!! I now have a car that turns in how i want it to, with tyres that dont lose grip after 10 minutes, with the ability to accelerate out of the corner without breaking traction.  Very happy!  It just lacks power now.  Videos below!
