Mazdaspeed3 10-13 Powerflex Front Control Arm Rear Bushing Anti-Lift & Caster Offset
Anti-Lift Front Control Arm Rear Bushings with Offset Caster
The Mazdaspeed3 is an extremely fun-to-drive car 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.
Available with Street (Shore 80A) or Race/Black Series (Shore 95A) bushing material and CNC-machined aluminum mounts and associated hardware.
Tire contact with road surfaces is maximized anti-lift geometry and 1 degree of caster offset for improved grip, decreased understeer, and enhanced drive confidence. 7.5mm anti-lift properties.
Stock rubber control arm bushings give a disconnected and mushy feel to the front suspension, especially when worn, as the bushing deflects more than it should. You get sloppy steering, vibrations, and poor handling which makes the car feel unstable. These urethane bushings are stiffer than stock rubber and will not deflect as much. This helps keep the alignment in check with less variation. The car feels more planted and confidence-inspiring. And a lifetime warranty means you'll likely never have to pay for another bushing ever again!
If you have a high HP Speed then get this it helps so much! front end is more planted on launches and hard accelerations , cornering is greatly improved, Turn in is sharper now as well no added noise or vibration to the vehicle. install is actually very easy as the bushings are already installed in the bracket. only took a day with hand tools to do it. I didn't have to use a press!
