Mini – Polyurethane Suspension Bushes
Suspension bushes are a very common failure point on all Mini’s causing adverse tyre wear, incorrect alignment and unpredictable handling when worn.
These bushes are manufactured from a rubber compound containing natural products which deteriorate with age. As they age the bush becomes softer and more pliable, resisting the forces placed on it less and less. Therefore allowing more and more movement of suspension components and offering less and less control over the suspension geometry.
The below video demonstrates just how much compliance there is in a standard car with worn front bushes.
This in turn causes accelerated tyre wear, braking instability and poor handling. This is the single biggest reason you can instantly tell the difference driving a three year old car compared to a showroom new one.
At Grosvenor we don’t believe in wasting your money, this is why we no longer fit these inferior, standard rubber BMW bushes that your vehicle was made with for them to fail again later down the line. Rather than just fitting replacements, we have devised a solution.
We fit a set of uprated Polyurethane bushes and issue a lifetime guarantee!
At Grosvenor we stock a huge range of Polyurethane Suspension Bushes for the Mini’s (pictured above).
Polyurethane bushes don’t deteriorate like standard rubber bushes, so in 20,000 miles they will feel the same as the day we’ve fitted them.
