For all Alfasud, Sprint and Alfa 33.
The set consists of 6 polyurethane-bushes for the front wishbones.
Heritage Collection bushes are manufactured using modern day materials with properties biased for the road.
These dark grey coloured bushes will improve any collector’s car, whilst retaining the same standard appearance of a rubber bush.
They have the same hardness as the well known purple bushes.
Polyurethane (PU) bushes are about 30 % harder than OEM rubber bushes used which are used by the car industry. A suspension which is equipped with PU bushes will give a much more responsive handling. The PU-bushes do not age while OEM rubber bushes get softer with the time which makes the car's handling worse and can set the axle's geometry the wrong way. This then results in increased tyre wear.
PU-bushes can save a lot of money as they are cheaper than a complete new wishbone. Alfa Romeo often does not sell the bushes as single items and forces the buyer to order a complete wishbone.
We do not want to keep secret that PU-bushes reduce the ride comfort of your Alfa. They send all those humps and bumps more directly to the chassis than standard rubber bushes. We recommend PU-bushes only for drivers who like a more sporty setup. Because of the bushes' design there could also be a minimal increase in the noise level. Drivers who prefer a more comfortable setup should opt for OEM rubber bushes.More information about polyurethane bushes
