Suspension & Bushes
Updated: May 15, 2018
Your car's chassis and suspension maximise the friction between the tyres and the road to provide steering stability and good handling. The suspension system is made up of several components, including the chassis, which holds the cab of the car.
The springs support the vehicle weight and absorb and reduce excess energy from road shocks, along with the shock absorbers and struts. Finally, the anti-sway bar shifts the movement of the wheels and stabilizes the car.
The chassis of a production vehicle is designed to be built at a minimum cost, and suited for an "average driver". We enthusiasts, however, are anything but average. We know what we want from a vehicle - we want immediate response, reduced body roll, increased stability and enhanced cornering ability. Sometimes we just want the stance look that comes with those characteristics.
The difference between replacing the springs or fitting Coilovers is that Coilovers give you the ability to adjust ride height, damping and in most applications corner weight to your exact preferences.
Do I need alignment after my Coilovers are installed?
We highly recommend getting an alignment anytime a set of Coilovers are installed. The camber and toe settings will be changed some times drastically due to the change in height.
Will Coilovers be good enough for track or competition use?
Yes! If you need help choosing a kit that will hold up to whatever type of racing you are doing, be it track-days, rally, road-racing, autocross, etc. Contact us through live chat or email and we will be happy to help!

Polyurethane has been with us as a specialised plastic for some thirty years. However recent advances have now made it possible to engineer very special properties into this exciting material. Suspension bushes are some of the most highly stressed components fitted to a motor car. They undergo enormous strains and in the most arduous of conditions with no maintenance or lubrication.
Poly bushings can be used in anti-roll bars, radius arms, steering racks, trailing arms, subframes and many other locations which will improve the road holding, handling, tyre wear and feel of any vehicle. This is possible because our products achieve consistent tyre-to-road-alignment, particularly under braking and cornering loads. In many cases there is little or no effect on NVH, thanks to careful design by our suppliers.
We run these on our competition drift car and our road cars, both with great results.
I use my car daily, will fitting Polyurethane Bushes make the ride uncomfortable?
No. Due to the unique properties of the raw material and the design techniques used to manufacture Polyurethane bushes they will not cause any extra noise, vibration or harshness (NVH) over the standard rubber bushes. This makes them suitable for road cars and race cars a like.
Will I improve my handling by fitting polyurethane Supsension Bushes?
Yes, by fitting poly bushes you will experience consistent steering geometry, and enhanced handling and control of any vehicle as it does not deteriorate as rubber will. Due to SuperPro's unique Polyurethane material and design features, stricter tolerances can be used which will give you improved performance characteristics such as; better road holding, increased tyre life, more responsive steering, and longer service life of suspension components.
