WHY POLYURETHANE SUSPENSION BUSHES?

Time to do some sums…

WHY POLYURETHANE SUSPENSION BUSHES?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.

POWERFLEX for prolonged tyre life.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 CAMBER GAUGE!

The PowerAlign Magnetic Camber Gauge measures the Camber angle on the wheel hub or brake disc and allows on-car adjustment to ensure correct wheel alignment. This extremely useful tool for setting camber angles after dismantling and re-assembling of the suspension and is an ideal track day companion.

This easy to use magnetic gauge attaches to the hub or brake disc and measures up to + or - six degrees and comes supplied in a durable storage case.

As #vinithev8mini continues to gather pace it sometimes feels as if there's never any light at the end of the tunnel, but the devil is always in the detail and getting that right always involves many, many man hours.

Here's ours, making good progress with some custom Goodridge LTDhoses and a bespoke stainless exhaust system, now show us yours... #vinithev8mini #powerflexbushes #madeintheuk #goodridgehoses #customexhaust #fabrication  #modifiedcars #trackday #motorsportvision #v8 #bmw #mini #madeintheuk #fastcar #trackcar

#poweeflexbushes #madeintheuk #wingmirrors #quiztime #guesswho #corvette #mclaren@pigbak_mr200 has been carrying out some MR200 prep, replacing the last duo of ST150 engine mount bushes for Powerflex items 💛💜 The top engine mount and top gearbox mount are simple to change and will bring new rigidity to the mounts, a lifetime warranty and also improved gearchanges due to the reduction in engine and gearbox movement.
