Polyurethane is highly regarded for its exceptional durability and for its ability to provide responsive feel for the driver. Polyurethane bushings in the right application can also significantly improve a vehicle's road holding capability and ride refinement by stabilizing suspension geometry during cornering, accelerating and braking. The extremely high tension and compression bearing capacity, combined with a natural resistance to grease, oil, gas and most chemicals, makes poly well suited for use in suspension applications. ipd offers many polyurethane upgraded bushings.
