MINI front control arm bushings are notorious failure points in their respective suspension systems. The original bushings are notably soft from the very start, and as these 10 to 20-year-old cars continue to age, the rubber bushings continue to degrade.
Powerflex's longer-lasting, better-performing, polyurethane alternatives to these bushings have been a popular upgrade for the owners of these cars for some time now, but while our bushings are easy to install, sometimes removing the old bushings from the original housing brackets can be painful. especially for those with limited access to pressing or pulling tools.
Powerflex now offers the same bushings that many already know and love, now pre-pressed into the housing brackets for a simple bolt-off and bolt-on solution! PFF5K-101 Front Wishbone Rear Bushings & Bracket fits MINI Gen 1 R50/R53 and uses our existing PFF5-101 bushing. A long-lasting, better-performing polyurethane bushing alternative.
