The 1st Gen Range Rover Evoque was Land Rover‘s attempt at providing Range Rover looks and luxury at a more affordable price, and a wise move it turned out to be, with LR selling over half a million units within five years of its launch.
With its proven success, Land Rover followed the same path by introducing the Discovery Sport, a versatile, more compact and affordable version of their popular, go-anywhere Discovery, utilising the same D8 platform as the Evoque.
While visually different, it does mean that mechanically they share some of the same issues – notably with the suspension bushes, so this week, we are pleased to announce a solution for a common MOT failure; the fluid-filled hydro bush situated at the rear of the aluminium wishbone.
PFF32-702 Front Wishbone Rear Bush is a two-piece polyurethane bush that fits the pressed steel OE bracket. The kit includes a Black 95A durometer inner bush with an internal supporting washer and a Purple 80A outer bush featuring a knurled bore for grease retention, resulting in a 400% increase in stiffness over the worn OE bush.
The two parts turn independently, allowing freer rotation and reducing torsional stress in the bush for a lasting solution and to restore steering response, braking stability, vehicle handling and tyre longevity without compromising comfort.
