What is a Vertical Pivot Bush (VPB)?
SuperPro's vertical pivoting bushes are a perfect example of how replacing or upgrading a standard rubber component with a properly-engineered polyurethane equivalent can provide a series of significant benefits. Especially those found in modern-design suspension systems and specifically, the front control arms.
Each SuperPro VPB (vertical pivoting bush) is an assembly of four components:
- a steel encased outer bush that presses into the control arm;
- a steel tube that fits tightly into the centre of the bush, leaving a chamfered gap at each end to allow movement; and
- two polyurethane cones that fit neatly over the ends of the extended inner tube.
This unique assembly allows the control arm to pivot in the vertical plane with minimal resistance, whist retain positive location in the horizontal plane.
