Will I Lose Ride Quality?

The original rubber bushing or mount was fairly soft which helped to attenuate noise and vibration that is generated by the tires and road surface. Increasing the hardness of the bushing either with harder rubber, urethane or even bronze, will allow more transmission of noise and vibrations. Some manufacturers formulate the hardness and design to reduce this effect. A softer urethane bushing allows the vehicle to perform better without the harshness, even over rubber components of the same hardness. The only change in ride quality is increased performance!

Why Use PROTHANE’S Urethane/Polyurethane?

Production vehicles are built using rubber bushings in control arms, strut arms, leaf springs, body mounts, motor mounts, transmission mounts, sway bars and shocks. Additionally, rubber components can be found being used on coil spring pads, leaf spring pads and suspension bump stops. Not only are rubber components on the soft side to accommodate the typical car and truck buyer, they tend to deteriorate rapidly. This contributes to premature component failure, a “spongy” ride and less than ideal performance handling. Urethane can correct these conditions, while improving drivability.
