FITTING GUIDES

REMOVAL GUIDE

POWERFLEX suspension bushes are designed, in general, to be fitted by a home mechanic without the necessity for special tools. 

The following video shows a typical way of removing and installing bushes with tools found in most home garages.

FITTING SINGLE PIECE, DOUBLE FLANGED BUSHES 

1. Remove the original rubber bush from the arm, clean any dirt and corrosion from the bore in the arm. Use a round or half-moon file to remove any sharp edges from around the bore of the arm creating a small chamfer. Failure to do so will cause damage to the bush when pressing in.

2. Check the stainless steel sleeve is not in the bush at this point. Apply some washing up liquid to the outside of the bush to ease fitting. Press the polyurethane bush into the arm at an angle so one part of the lip is already in the bore of the arm, when the bush is then pushed in the rest of the lip will follow. Make sure the lip has fully popped out the other side of the arm.

3. Apply some of the supplied grease to the bore of the bush and insert the sleeve into the bush. 

4. Re-fit the arm to the car and tighten all hardware to all manufacturers recommended torque settings.

APPLICATION OF GREASE

The grease supplied with our bushes in the white sachet is our own formulated PTFE/Silicone bush assembly grease. It’s to be used to optimise bush performance and durability. 

It is best to assemble our bush kits into the suspension components using a small smear of this long lasting grease. This can be applied to the bores and outer flanges of all bushes and to the centre sleeve. Any excess grease visible once assembled can easily be wiped clear. 

MEASURING YOUR ANTI-ROLL BAR

To measure your Anti-Roll bar, there are two recommended methods.

If you have access to a vernier caliper then this is the most accurate way, however using an open-ended spanner can be just as effective.

By placing the open end of the spanner over the ARB, you can gauge the size by simply moving up and down on the size until you find one that fits closely. Whatever the size of the spanner is the size of the ARB bush that you’d require. Simple!  

A range of bushes engineered for the road to compliment your classic car.

Factoryhall.one-Querlenker-Satz Audi A4 B6/B7 Powerflex RoadSerie

In Zusammenarbeit mit Powerflex/DE Markführer im Bereich Polyurethane Fahrwerksbuchsen bieten wir Querlenkersätze für den alltäglichen Gebrauch oder Motorsport. Erhältlich in zwei verschiedenen Varianten: 
RoadSerie wie es der Name schon sagt, für die Straße. In der Farbe Lila mit 80Shore härtegrad, dies ist ca. 10-15% härter als die originale Gummi-Serienbuchse. 
BlackSerie in der Farbe Schwarz für Motorsport und Rennstrecke. Diese Buchsen haben einen Härtegrad von 95Shore. 
Beide Varianten sind auch erhältlich mit Sturzkorrektur, für Fahrzeuge die nach einer Tieferlegung nicht mehr auf die Hersteller Sollwerte ihrer Achsgeometrie kommen. Haben sie so die Möglichkeit Ihren Sturz bis zu 1,5grad zu korrigieren. 
Da uns häufig die Frage gestellt wird, welche Querlenker wir verwenden: 
Wir benutzen ausschließlich Querlenker unserer Hausmarke „FACTORYHALL.ONE“ die spezifisch für uns gefertigt werden, dabei achten wir stets auf eine gute Verarbeitung der Kugelgelenke. 
Vorteile gegenüber originalen Fahrwerksbuchsen: -bessere Stabilität des Fahrwerkes -Erhöhung von Sicherheit und Fahrkomfort -längere Lebensdauer der Reifen -verbessertes Handling und Fahrgefühl -präziseres Lenkverhalten -Enorme Lebensdauer gegenüber herkömmlichen Buchsen (lebenslange Garantie auf Pu-Buchsen)
