Original manufacturers bushes are made from a rubber compound containing natural products which deteriorate with age. It becomes softer and more pliable, resisting the forces placed on it over time. This allows more movement of suspension components and offers less control over the suspension geometry. The knock on effect is 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.
Dispite this, even new cars will benefit from Powerflex bushes. Their superior design offers much more effective control of the suspension components to a greater extent than normal rubber items. With the technological advances in this material it has been possible to overcome the problem of increased noise from a harder bush. 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 now back up the quality of their product with a lifetime warranty (restricted to original purchaser, excludes Black Series). ALL BUSHES ARE PRICED IN CAR SETS.Application:
