The Problem with Worn Suspension Bushes
Suspension bushes are a type of vibration isolator that is often made of rubber. The purpose of a suspension bush is to prevent metal-to-metal contact while still allowing for some movement. The movement is essential for allowing parts of the suspension to move freely. Although small, suspension bushes largely influence the efficiency of a vehicle, playing an important role in the safety, comfort, and handling of a vehicle. Due to the constant exposure to the elements underneath a vehicle, deterioration of suspension bushes can occur over time.
It’s therefore important to check your suspension bushes.
