Anti-Lift Front Control Arm Rear Bushings with Offset Caster

The Mk2 Ford Focus, including the ST and RS performance models, as well as the platform-sharing Mazda3 and Volvo C30/S40/V40 are all extremely fun-to-drive cars with one exception. They have a well-known tendency toward torque steer during spirited driving because of their front-wheel-drive layout.

The new Powerflex Front Control Arm Rear Bushing Anti-Lift & Caster Offset part is engineered to provide revised suspension geometry for vastly improved handling and responsiveness while virtually eliminating the fun-killing torque steer.

The Powerflex Difference

Odoo CMS - a big picture

Data doesn't lie

You can see from the chart above that the difference in performance goes well beyond just a superficial feel behind the wheel. Street-grade Powerflex bushings provide a vast improvement over the original factory rubber bushings without any increase in NVH. For those with ultimate performance goals and less concern about NVH, Powerflex Race/Black Series bushings show an even greater improvement in precision and response.
