” Our hottest Polyurethane suspension product for 2019 is… the kits geared for the early model (60’s-early 70’s) “Muscle Cars”.”
” Its best features include… the incorporation of groves to act as grease reservoirs to assist in the elimination of harmonics (squeaking). Also the fail safe interlocking method on our engine and transmission mounts that put to rest any possibility of a failure leading to a catastrophe.”
” The types of vehicles that benefit the most from Polyurethane upgrades are… limitless due to the nature of our kits being utilized a both a factory replacement or as a performance upgrade. This allows our kits to be used in all applications.”
” The biggest misconception concerning Polyurethane component upgrades is… That it will create squeaking or make the vehicle ride rough typically referred to as NVH (Noise, Vibration or Harshness). Our specially formulated polyurethane allows us to find a happy balance between responsiveness and harshness. Additionally, the purchase of individual kits allows the end user to custom tune to his/her preference.”
” An unexpected benefit for shops that offer Polyurethane upgrades is… That it is an inexpensive upgrade in performance above the stock rubber components that can be an easy “add on sale” to tire, wheel, shocks and alignment installation and services.”

Grassroots Motorsports Magazine
Grassroots Motorsports Magazine builds a 2003 Nissan 350Z and selects PROTHANE Total Kit™ Suspension Bushings Part # 142007. This will be one of their front-line project cars for their 2018-2019 editorial cycle. Chevy’s LS-designated series of small-block V8s are the basis of today’s most popular engine swaps, and they have found the perfect recipient for their own home-built 5.7-liter LS1: We think this one can be turned into an exceedingly fast track car. Putting a LS engine in a Nissan is a little unusual but given a combo like this, this could be a game changer. Look for this editorial coming soon in Grassroots Motorsports Magazine.
