“PROTHANE Bushings Can Sharpen Your Vehicle’s Response for Under $300” >

While rubber bushings minimize noise and discomfort, they have the unfortunate side effect of diminishing the sporting potential of a vehicle. So often, an excited driver takes their newly purchased car to an autocross and experiences disappointing roll and delay between their inputs and their vehicle’s responses. Such an underwhelming experience is a lousy way to celebrate a new purchase.
Not only are OEM rubber components relatively soft to accommodate the typical car and truck buyer, they tend to deteriorate rapidly. This contributes to premature component failure, adverse suspension alignment changes, a spongy ride, and uninspiring performance on the track.
Fortunately, this sloppy, sedate behavior can be changed completely with a simple addition. By replacing the car’s rubber suspension bushings with stiffer performance urethane pieces that resist deflection, they enjoy sharpened response and more predictable behavior.   …”

The Shop Magazine Polyurethane Article, Feb. 2020 >

Our hottest Polyurethane product for 2020 is our Chevy Camaro 2010-’15 Total Kit, available in red or black polyurethane. Its best features include it uses PROTHANE’s Pro-grade performance urethane and is a total chassis and suspension solution. The kit not only includes all the necessary suspension bushing replacement items, but also subframe mounts. This gives the vehicle a complete upgrade away from weak rubber, to prepare it for street performance applications and competition. Individual components are also sold separately.

The target customer base for Polyurethane products includes foreign and domestic car and truck owners looking to improve their vehicles’ operation in various degrees. We have more than 5,000 part numbers in our product line. The outside factor currently having the biggest effect on the Polyurethane market is the need for education about how the right performance polyurethane (or urethane, for short) component set greatly benefits vehicles in both dramatic and cost effective ways.

Here’s a tip shops can use to increase Polyurethane-related sales, to understand the products and be able to explain their features and benefits. We have a “MORE ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS” Section on our website that can help educate our customers!

Rick Sadler, Title: Vice President

” 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.
