Using its special formulations, precise engineering methods, and attention to customers needs they now offer an extensive line of polyurethane based performance products for both import and domestic cars and trucks. All of Prothane's machining and manufacturing processes are done in the USA. Polyurethane is a term used to describe a wide ranging family of elastomers with the characteristics of natural rubber - stretchy and elastic.Polyurethane, or urethane for short, is used as a solid cast material and can be as soft as a rubber band or as hard as plastic. Production vehicles use rubber for most suspension bushings, mounts, and boots. Prothane's specially formulated polyurethane can correct these conditions with improved drivability and years of superior service.
Will I Lose Ride Quality? The original rubber bushing or mount was fairly soft which helped to dampen the noise and vibration generated by tires and road surfaces. Increasing the hardness of a bushing will allow more transmission of noise and vibrations.Prothane formulates the hardness (durometer) and design to reduce this effect as much as possible. A softer urethane bushing allows the vehicle to perform better without the harshness, even over rubber components of the same hardness. The real change in ride quality is increased performance! Do I Need Special Tools To Install? Installing urethane components typically will not require special tools. However, if unique tools and equipment are required due to the type of vehicle, you will need them in order to do the job properly. Squeaking is caused by high frequency vibrations that can be heard rather than felt. It is usually caused by lack of lubrication, poor installation, incorrect part, or urethane that may be too hard for the application. For example, in sway bar mount applications, most squeaking is the result of not cleaning the bar thoroughly prior to installation and failing to use Prothane's squeak proof Super Grease. All of Prothane's dynamic application bushings feature grooves or splines designed to hold Super Grease (included with bushings) to provide the best possible performance. Will I Need To Reuse My Metal Shells?
Prothane has a complete shell program for most popular applications. Many of their control arm bushing kits come complete with a new shell.
On some applications you will need to reuse the metal shell, so be very very careful when removing it from the vehicle. The shells themselves are not a replacement item.States - this excludes AK, HI, PR. Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution.
