Q. I currently use rubber bushes, why should I change?

A. The suspension bushes in most road cars are normally made from rubber, a choice usually made on the grounds of cost!

The disadvantages of rubber are; that it degrades quickly and in operation the twisting and or loading action of the bush causes the rubber to bind up, adversely affecting accuracy of component location, varying suspension rate or stiffness and thus reducing efficient operation of suspension.

The polyurethane bush acts as a flexible bearing thus avoiding distortion and significantly improving suspension location and operation with consequent benefits to ride handling & “feel”.

Q. Will I really see a difference if I change from rubber to polyurethane?

A. Autobush Polyurethane bushes have been carefully designed and developed to optimise suspension performance and the improvement in handling is immediately apparent.

Tyre life can be prolonged and noise vibration and harshness may be reduced.

A unique “cross hatching” feature inside the bore of many of the bushes retains lubricant, ensures correct operation over a long period and also prolongs life. Autobush urethane bushes do not degrade in the same way as rubber and the improved performance offered by Autobush is retained for a long period.

Q. Why should I choose Auto Bush over other suppliers?

A. Top quality “Huntsman Corporation” of the USA ( urethanes have been selected to ensure a consistent top quality product – many similar bushes may be a little cheaper but the products used are inferior, shortening life and reducing performance. Autobush bushes have a unique cross hatching feature inside the bore of the bush, retaining lubricant and ensuring the bush operates smoothly over a long period without noise or stiction. Our bushes also have, where appropriate, stainless steel centre sleeves or crush tubes eliminating corrosion and preserving appearance.

Q. Why is Autobush grease important?

A. Polyurethane can chemically decompose rapidly when lubricated with many petroleumbased greases. We care about the lifespan of your new bush fitment and only supply a special grease which has been proven not to have any reaction with polyurethane. It is packed in tube or sachet form for easy application . inferior products may be supplied with an incorrect lubricant or no lubricant at all, which normally results in short term bush failure. we care about your time and money, bush replacement should be required less often when you choose Autobush.

Q. Why is Autobush cross hatching important?

A. Autobush incorporates a 0.5 mm groove in the cross hatching to retain grease. A lip seal is also incorporated into our design to keep grease encapsulated.Retention of lubricant is the only effective way of addressing the sticktion and sqeak issues .Exstensive tests have proven that any lesser depth of cross hatching is ineffective in retaining lubricant with resultant shortening of bush life. Autobush designs ensure your bushes function efficiently for a longer duration.
