Powerflex uses premium polyurethane materials for minimal NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) and increased longevity over the stock rubber bushings. The quality of Powerflex products can be seen the moment you open the box: premium polyurethanes, detailed moldings, lube holding grooves and knurls, and 304 stainless sleeves. Each kit is supplied with a copper-based grease for extended squeak-free operation. In some applications, we have polyurethane engine/ drivetrain mount and reinforcements to reduce movement for better throttle response and more power to the wheels.

Powerflex bushings do not come in complete chassis kits. Our bushings come à la carte to fit each customer's needs*. An automobile's bushings and mounts wear at different rates making "complete-kit" bushing sets unnecessary for most buyers. Many owners don't feel the need to replace every bushing at once, having only a particular location that needs attention. Replacing only the "weak links" in your car's suspension is a great way to tighten handling without stressing the budget.

Bushings come in pre-determined durometers (measured hardness) from Powerflex to work best in each particular location.

Powerflex copper-based grease is supplied with every dynamic product. We suggest using only a copper-based grease for lubrication. Due to grooves and knurls cast into the material to hold the lubricant, bushings will rarely need re-lubing. We do not suggest using an "anti-seize" product for lubrication.

New cars can benefit from Powerflex bushings because their superior design offers more effective control of the suspension components to a much greater extent than normal rubber items.

The MINI Cooper suspension utilizes rubber bushing in both the front and rear control arms. The factory original bushing typically last about 60K miles before you might notice a few clunks and/or squeaks while driving. They are basically used to isolate the different parts from each other and to prevent sound and vibrations coming from the road and tires to travel through the rest of the car. Worn-out front control arm bushing will result in increasing less responsive steering.

Once again we’re back to trade-offs. For the average driver, with average passengers, the ability of the car to absorb bumps without rattling the dentures of gran’pa in the back seat is at least as important as how fast the car will get around corners.
