FD Powerflex Polyurethane Bushings
« on: July 12, 2011, 06:04:10 PM »


POWERFLEX has a wide experience in automotive suspension and chassis systems and have combined these design skills with advanced polyurethane manufacturing techniques to lead in the development of a wide range of high performance automotive polyurethane components. The company operates in a self-contained state of the art factory in England, manufacturing everything in-house. The molding and tooling, design and manufacturing is carried out within the factory ensuring very rapid response time to special projects and complete communication between development, prototyping, testing and manufacturing departments. Component manufacturing is carried out with the latest automatic processing equipment ensuring 100% right first time quality. Testing of new components is carried out both on the vehicle and on test rigs. ll of these factors combined make POWERFLEX the number one selling performance bushings in Europe and continue to increase popularity in today's North American automotive market.

All POWERFLEX poducts come with a lifetime warranty. Click here for more info: http://www.powerflexusa.com/lifetime_warranty.php



Most Powerflex bushings made for the 3rd gen RX-7 come in Purple (80A durometer) with the exception of the rear lower control arm and the rear upper control arm outer bushing (see #10 in the diagram below) which both come in Black (95A durometer).
We can custom order in durometers ranging from 70A(Yellow), 80A(Purple), and 95A(Black). 70A is slightly harder than rubber and works great for drivers looking for a slight increase in chassis response. 70A is not suggested in certain location due to its lack of rigidity. 80A is noticeably harder than rubber and makes a great performance street material that retails low levels of NVH. 95A is the hardest, and can be used in certain locations with minimal NVH. For most locations, 95A is used for aggressive/track use only. Custom durometer bushing sets take at least 4 weeks for delivery.

Complete Powerflex bushing kit $759.48
Includes the following bushings: Front sway bar, steering rack, front and rear upper and lower control arms, toe links, trailing arm, differential bushings and rear sway bar.

Powerflex kit without front and rear sway bars $673.10.
Includes the following bushings: Steering rack, front and rear upper and lower control arms, toe links, trailing arm, and differential bushings.

Don't need a full kit at this time? Individual bushings are also available:
When you order a part number, you will receive the driver and passenger side.



#1 - Front Lower Control Arm Front Bushing (PFF36-301) $54.99
#2 - Front Lower Control Arm Rear Bushing (PFF36-302) $54.99

I just ordered a complete set to replace my unobtanium delrin bushings 2 weeks ago  :(  Oh well. Good stuff if anyone is interested.  Not to mention they're a 2 piece design so they don't need to be pressed in.

New bushings is one of the best things you can do to your FD. Ive had customer's call me on the drive home, after I installed these on their cars, almost yelling with joy from how much better their cars feel. The best part is that these wont rattle your interior apart or give you a harsh ride. My ride quality suffered more just by going to 18" wheels from 17's than by going with poly bushings.

I also carry Pillow ball bushings for the rear if any of you are interested. I'll make a thread about them once I get some pictures of them.

Agreed.  I will say that the powerflex stuff is nice.  I just did the whole front suspension on my car and the diff bushings on my friend's FD (what a pain in the ass to get them to go in straight by the way...)  Powerflex needs to include more grease though.  What they send is barely enough to get a thin film on everything.

I bought a tube of Marine Grease.  It's resistant against water, thick and sticky so it'll stay on the bushings for longer.

I feel the same way about the grease but extra grease packets are available at $2.00 a pop. I've found that 2 or 3 extra packets of grease is enough to have on hand just in case.

I need one pillow ball in my I arm. What is the price on that one?

Sent you a PM.

You should make an intro page and tell us about yourself/your business.

I'll work on one since most people may not know me on this forum.

I added a third bushing kit (Powerflex basic) and decided to drop the 3% paypal fee! Times are tough and these changes will save you guys even more money :cheers:

Thanks to all who've purchased bushings so far!
