JeePerf CONTROL ARM Bushings Re-engineered for Control, Comfort And Responsive Steering
05-10 Jeep WK/XK Polyurethane Front UCA (JBA & OEM) Bushings (4)
Control arm bushings are an important part of your Jeep suspension systems. OEM bushings are made of rubber which separates the faces of two objects while allowing a certain amount of movement. As your Jeep moves over rough or bumpy surfaces, this movement allows the suspension parts to move easily. The rubber which is flexible in nature helps to minimize transmission of noise and small vibrations through to the chassis of the vehicle. Front upper control arm bushings are mounted at each end of the control arm to secure the connection to the chassis.
OEM bushings are made through hot-bonded construction process where elastic material, in this case rubber, is either melted or injected to the inner and outer metal sleeves. Rubber will bond to metal, but as rubber wears out over time as a result of heat, natural elements and frequent movement, it becomes brittle, cracks and disintegrates. This changes the geometry of the front suspension causing more noise to be transmitted to the cabin, poor vehicle alignment, poor traction, excessive tire wear, unsafe high speed handling, cornering, and braking.
Benefits of Using our Bushings
Our high quality engineered bushing design is very unique. They are unique in both our selection of materials as well as design. These bushings are engineered for comfort, performance and longevity.
Our design is a floating design as our bushing material does not bond to metal. It remains suspended on the mount surface which allows for smooth operation, greater range of motion and a long service life. Zerk fittings can be fitted as an option to give you even longer service life when you want to use your Jeep in punishing, heavy duty off-roading environments.
Our bushings maintain proper front end alignment while driving. This is achieved even when off road and under extreme weather conditions. As a result, there is an overall improvement in handling, cornering and control on road and flexibility and comfort off road. Installing our high quality bushings will lighten up your Jeep's handling which hastens navigation. They will make it easier to maneuver your Jeep on uneven road surfaces or when driving in extreme weather conditions.
Another benefit of using these bushings is that they are useful in controlling wheel hop which also improves cornering control. They help in maintaining proper front end alignment which allows good steering response and greater control of the vehicle.
These bushings, while delivering their benefits, they amazingly add negligible amounts of Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) to the vehicle’s interior making them very suitable for daily driving.
It is important to install high quality bushings for durability, reliability and to make driving your Jeep more enjoyable and safe. Our bushings are OEM replacements that can be installed in lowered or raised applications where suspension geometry has been altered.
They are made to fit OEM upper control arms as well as aftermarket ones that use OEM equivalents like JBA and others.
