Description
Powerflex Front Lower Control Arm rear bushing upgrade kit. Replace the stock fluid-filled bushings that leak and fail over time.

Kit includes one PAIR of bushings to service both right and left control arms.

Fits:

2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Convertibles

Kit includes a pair of bushings for both front control arms.

Worn bushing will affect handling and alignment causing premature wear on the front tires.

These bushing will need to be pressed into the bracket. A special BMW tools is required to remove the stock bushings.

Powerflex polyurethane bushings are designed to decrease the amount of deflection in your car's suspension for better handling, driver feedback, and tire wear. 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 copper-based grease is supplied with the Support Kit for Racing. 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.

POWERFLEX will prolong tire life, improve performance and increase safety.

All Powerflex bushings are made in the UK and come with a 1 year, unlimited mile warranty.

For the Factory Replacement, see NMS7610.

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.
