This John Cooper Works edition Mini Cooper S came into suspension-specialist ,Tuned UK, with a knocking noise coming from the rear suspension and vague handling (a very common issue on these cars).

SuperPro is an innovative Australian manufacturer of automotive polyurethane suspension bushings and suspension parts based in Brisbane, Australia. These specially formulated, high-quality components are designed to create suspension solutions for better stability, handling and control in on-road, off-road and race track applications. SuperPro offers the widest range of suspension upgrade components including poly bushes, suspension bushes, anti-roll bar bushes, anti-roll bars, anti-roll bar links, radius rods, control arm, panhard rods, shock absorber bushings, greasable shackle and pin kits, and so much more.
Our experience has shown that modern vehicles today do not have provision for wheel alignment correction and as the vehicle’s suspension softens with age, they begin to wander or steer off in one direction. Replacing with SuperPro bushings and parts rectifies this by removing excess compliance in the suspension system without affecting NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness).
Products are constantly tested and re-engineered on our own vehicle fleet, customer's vehicles in the UK, Europe and around the world, as well as a conducting a continuous program of cyclic testing on specifically-designed test equipment.
With our extensive range of superior quality bushes, we don't just sell Polyurethane Suspension Bushes; we provide complete solutions to suspension and steering problems.
