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.

This was the strut mount bushing replacement on his MK4 Golf. Apparently there’s a special trick to changing these out that only requires a nut from the hardware store - who knew! 🤷🏼‍♂️ You can find details of this trick on the internet easily or send him a DM 📲

Still looking remarkably fresh today, you can't always say the same for the bushes underneath. After all, on the earliest cars those bushes could be 35 years old!! Our solution is our Heritage bush range. That subtle OEM finish for concours purists and originality sticklers, coupled with a renewed crispness in handling and perfect ride. Precision with showroom freshness? Absolutely! 🔧🧰🇩🇪 #powerflex #powerflexbushes #getbushed #feelthedifference #stance #camber #lowering #carwrenching #audi #vag #audi90 #audi80 #classiccars #heritage #resto #restoration #carantine #asnew
