Powerflex MINI Cooper Control Arm Caster Bushings! If you have 60K miles on your MINI, more than likely, your bushings are already blown out or on their way out. So replace your worn out bushings with these great units from Powerflex. This is a very common problem on all generation 1 cars. The rubber was too thin and when in use, they rip. Once ripped, the hydraulic fluid leaks out, the bushing dry out faster and comes apart even more. Don't worry, nothing's going to fall off, but you will lose handling and will not be able to align the car correctly until you have them fixed. This is the only bushing we install here at the shop!

The NEW Powerflex caster bushings PFF5-101G  & PFF5-201G offers an additional +2 of caster (or more) and is a high performance option to the standard PFF5-101 control arm bushings which is a big hit. Aimed at offering greater precision with improved geometry for people wanting the very best from their Mini. This new part, fitted to the rear of the front wishbone has a hard anodized aluminum outer shell with one of our unique low friction polyurethane center bushings. The poly/aluminum combination creates a low friction rotating bushing reducing the forces acting on the arm. Lower arm deflection has been decreased by reducing the compliant material within the aluminum shell. Additional caster angle will give more negative camber when cornering giving improved tire to road contact. Results are improved geometry when turning giving additional grip, steering control and feel with less movement in the arm under cornering and braking. When fitting PFF5-132G Camber Ball Joint, which offers additional negative camber, we recommend using PFF5-101G which neutralizes the caster lost by moving the arm position bringing the caster angle back to standard.

Powerflex polyurethane bushings are designed to decrease the amount of deflection in your car's suspension for better handling, more driver feedback, and better tire wear. Powerflex uses premium polyurethane materials for minimal NVH (noise, vibration, harshness) and increased longevity over the stock rubber bushings. Bushings come in pre-determined durometers (measured hardness) from Powerflex to work best in each particular location. The street bushing will work best for mostly everyone. They have been spec'd by Powerflex to be the best durometers for your application and are 70A (Yellow), 80A (Purple), and 95A (Black).

Powerflex grease is supplied with every dynamic product. We suggest using only this grease for lubrication. Due to grooves and knurls cast into the material to hold the lubricant, bushings will rarely need re-lubing. We do not suggest using an "anti-seize" product for lubrication.

Want a stiffer bushing? Have a track car? Try "The Black Series," a new range of bushings developed for Race, Rally and Circuit use. The Powerflex Black Series bushings are manufactured using a 95 Shore A compound to provide maximum control of chassis geometry. IN STOCK ready to ship!
