Elephant Racing's patent pending PolyBronze suspension bearings set a new
standard for performance, ride quality and ease-of -installation. Regular
polyurethane/plastic suspension bushings are obsolete!
PolyBronze is a precision bronze bearing encased in a polyurethane jacket. The
combination delivers a smooth-ride with the extreme performance of a metal
PolyBronze bearings are superior to plastic bushing alternatives, here's why -
Suspension mounts are coarse sheet metal pressings. They tend to be out-of-round
and have irregularities that deform ordinary polyurethane bushings, pinching and
binding the friction surface. Polyurethane is "grippy" with an inherently high
coefficient of friction and combined with pinching polyurethane bushings create
a lot of friction. The result is a harsh ride and reduced tire adhesion.
PolyBronze have a rigid bronze bearing core that does not deform. The
polyurethane jacket absorbs mount irregularities while the bronze inner bearing
remains true, providing a free-moving machined-fit that rides on a precision
race. Provided grease fittings make re-lubrication a breeze and a figure 8
groove keeps grease in place.
The combination delivers zero squeaks and friction-free suspension movement.
Well suited to street or track, ride quality is smooth and performance
maximized. PolyBronze bearings replace compressible factory rubber bushings.
