Our Car and Truck Line of Polyurethane Bushings are the Perfect Suspension Upgrade…
Polyurethane bushings are the best way to replace worn or inferior rubber bushings. Made for most suspension and drive train parts polyurethane is strong enough to provide superior protection while maintaining performance. Polyurethane bushings provide an almost direct connection with the road with the responsiveness of a race ready vehicle.
Polyurethane has higher abrasion, cut, and tear resistance. It can be made in a higher hardness rating and has better load bearing capacity. Polyurethane is oil and in some cases chemical resistant. In the manufacturing process it is easily color-able and a lot easier to mold.
Now rubber by its soft nature allows the vehicle mounts to absorb vehicle vibrations and noise which may give rise to the notion that polyurethane makes the ride harsher when these mounts are replaced with polyurethane equivalents. In most cases customers have noticed an increase in road vibrations due to polyurethane mounts but they have also stated this has decreased over time. Either they get used to it or it actually decreases.
In most cases polyurethane outperforms its rubber counterparts in replacement of bushings and mounts. The products will last longer, standing up to road debris, chemicals and oils, and compression and load. They will perform better by removing additional sloppiness in suspension performance due to worn, damaged, or missing bushings. And finally polyurethane looks better than rubber. In some cases this will not matter but a lot of vehicles, show or otherwise, have areas where these bushings show and a polyurethane bushing looks a lot better than its rubber counterpart.
So in the end if you are going for performance or upgrading your vehicle with new components then I would go with polyurethane bushings. They will outperform the rubber ones and last longer. Nowadays you can buy complete bushing kits and replace all of the bushings in your vehicle at one time.
We produce the following bushings for these parts.
Ball Joint Boots: Polyurethane ball joint boot kit that replaces the worn rubber boots on your ball joints. This is a must for your vehicle to protect expensive ball joints and keep the dirt, water, and dust away and the lubricating grease in.
End Link Kits: Polyurethane end link kits that replaces the worn end link bushings to help correct steering issues. The effectiveness of OEM stabilizer (anti-roll or sway) bars can easily be enhanced through replacing the mushy stock rubber bushings with firm polyurethane bushings.
Rack and Pinion Bushings: Polyurethane high performance steering components that will last longer and improve chassis feedback. While most models are direct factory replacements, we also offer various rack & pinion “offset” versions for those with modified ride height.
Radiator Isolator Bushings: Polyurethane radiator isolator kit that replaces the worn rubber isolators on your radiator. This is a must for your vehicle to protect expensive radiators and also restore your vehicle with a part that will last a lifetime. This is a perfect product for race applications.
Shifter Kit Bushings: Polyurethane shifter bushings that replaces the worn rubber bushings on your shifter and stabilizes shifting. This is a must for your vehicle to protect expensive shifter units and keep it shifting smoothly. Great for race applications and serious street performance vehicles.
Swaybar Bushings: Polyurethane sway bar kits that replaces the worn sway bar bushings to help correct steering issues. The effectiveness of OEM stabilizer (anti-roll or sway) bars can easily be enhanced through replacing the mushy stock rubber bushings with firm polyurethane bushings.
Tie Rod Boots: Polyurethane tie rod boot kit that replaces the worn rubber boots on your tie rods. This is a must for your vehicle to protect expensive tie rod ends and keep the dirt, water, and dust away and the lubricating grease in.
