What are car bushes?

Suspension bushes are small components which are typically made of rubber or polyurethane. By absorbing shock and isolating vibrations, they work to reduce friction at the point where more than one metal parts meet. In most road cars, suspension bushes are in place to improve overall ride comfort and allow important car parts to move freely without causing friction.

Suspension bushes symptoms

As with all car parts , suspension bushes are subject to general wear and tear as your car clocks up miles. Being exposed to the elements can also cause the suspension bushes to crack over time. You may need to replace front or rear suspension bushes.

As the rubber bushes wear down in your vehicle, your ride will become uncomfortable and you may experience unnatural movements in the steering - especially when cornering. Since suspension bushes prevent metal parts colliding, excessive noise and vibrations are also signs that your suspension bushes need replacing.
