There maybe model variations not specified in this listing. Please check OE part numbers where provided. Should I choose Road Series or Black Series Bushes? It is pretty straightforward really. If your car is used######xA0;on the road we advise######xA0; Road Series and if it is a used predominantly for motorsport choose Black Series. ######xA0;Powerflex Black Series products are Track / Motorsport focused only.
It doesn't matter if your car is a family runabout or fast road performance model - if######xA0;it's main use is######xA0;road then we would recommend Road Series. You have a modern day classic then you might prefer the more subdued looks of our new Heritage Range. Just like road series but grey!######xA0; I want to know more about Black Series? BLACK SERIES ######xA0;are the ultimate performance motorsport, track and race bushes offering the most precise and accurate alignment for your chassis. Black series bushes are:######xA0;80% more resistant, ######xA0;25% stiffer and engineered to be the best The stiffer black series bushes are made from harder compound and are designed for motorsport use only. You might experience extra noise and vibration if your car if fully kitted out in this stiffer compound. These kits are easily identified######xA0;as the part numbers are the same with the BLK suffix. Please note that Road Series bushes can be yellow, red, purple or black in colour. Powerflex pick the best compound for location on car. Some locations need the more absorbent properties provided by the more yielding######xA0;yellow or red polyurethane. While other locations on the car may require the firmer black bush to cope with strain and load. If it doesnt have BLK (black) or H (heritage) on the end of the part number then it is a road series bushing. MEASURING YOUR ANTI-ROLL BAR To measure your Anti-Roll bar, there are two recommended methods.
######xA0; 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####x2019;d require.
In general the answer is no. A lot of racing cars, especially single seater track based cars use metal joints which do not provide any noise absorbing. The life of these joints is measured in hours. They are not suitable for road use. However a huge number of racing cars still use rubber bushes.
These are either production based cars adapted for race use or rally cars where the forces on the suspension can be so high that metal joints would break. CAN I FIT POWERFLEX BUSHES TO MY RACING CAR? They will outlast rubber by a factor of ten. They will control the geometry much more accurately during rapid suspension movements and they will reduce tyre wear. Nylon is probably the worst of all worlds.When a suspension arm moves up and down it does not move only up and down but describes an arc. This means that, for example an inner track control arm bush will be required to flex in two dimensions at the same time. In this example a metal bush will allow this movement as will a rubber or POWERFLEX bush. However a nylon bush will allow up and down movement but 100% of the arc loadings will be transferred into the arm and the chassis. This causes arm flexing and can easily cause premature arm failure! Of course nylon has no vibration absorbing characteristics at all, so all vibration is transferred up the already highly stressed arm. IF POWERFLEX PRODUCTS ARE THIS GOOD WHY DO CAR MANUFACTURERS USE RUBBER AND NOT POLYURETHANE? Polyurethane, as a raw material is about ten times the cost of rubber plus it is more expensive and slower to process. If Ford decided to use polyurethane bushes in their range of cars they would need to find a supplier capable of making literally millions of bushes a year. There is no company in the world (even EPTG Ltd) who could make those sort of quantities. Cars are all about marketing. WHY DO I NEED THEM THEN? POWERFLEX bushes improve your cars####x2019; road holding and chassis performance by controlling the amount of unwanted flex in the suspension. This means your suspension is doing what it is supposed to. It means your tyres have greater contact with the road at all times therefore improving safety and performance. Correctly formulated polyurethane is as good if not better at noise, vibration and harshness suppression when compared to rubber.
Then consider tyre wear, a real cost saving here. Car manufacturers have a habit of not supplying the bushes on their own, only supplying them complete with suspension arms. Paying ######xA3;70 for an arm when a POWERFLEX bush might cost ######xA3;15 is not a good idea. And finally as cars get older manufacturers stop supplying certain parts.Imagine your car was off the road because of a bush failure. You go to the parts shop and the part is ####x201C;no longer serviced####x201D;! POWERFLEX makes a lot of sense then. ARE THEY EASY TO FIT? In the main we design all the bushes so that they can be fitted without special tools. ######xA0;However sometimes it is a lot harder to remove the old bushes than fit the new ones. If you feel you have very little mechanical knowledge, experience, talent or tools, either ask a friend or get them professionally fitted. WILL THEY FIT NON-GENUINE PARTS? We design all bushes using highly accurate measurements taken from genuine OE parts as fitted to the vehicle from new and as a result our parts may not fit aftermarket suspension components if they differ from standard. With this in mind if you do have Non-Genuine suspension arms etc. Fitted to your vehicle, we would always advise checking sizing prior to ordering. No, but it depends on the car.
Some cars benefit more than others. But there is a fair amount of effort involved in changing bushes so consider changing, for example a front set at one time, followed by the rear ones if applicable. Best to change the whole set if you can afford it though.
