Rubber metal parts are vital for providing support to a variety of systems within the vehicle make-up. These components are used within the steering, suspension and engine ranges to firmly fix their respective components in position, absorb vibrations that occur due to the road surface and drive torque whilst making a significant contribution to increasing driving comfort and noise insulation.
This includes a range of Hydraulic oil filled bushes which dampen vibrations and absorb bumps on uneven road surfaces. Solid rubber cores do not reduce vibration and noise as efficiently, and can transfer vibrations to surrounding components. It is important to always choose OE matching quality components to ensure optimum performance and avoid premature wear. With such safety critical components, it is not worth the risk.
Common problems with poor quality rubber-metal parts include:
- Rubber can dry out resulting in reduced performance
- Rubber may distort from the vehicle weight on the suspension
- Reduced stability
- Uneven tyre wear
- More noise and vibrations
SWAG hydraulic bushes are drop forged in aluminium for stronger resistance to wear. This ensures optimum performance and long service life.
With a range of over 14,000 components for all popular European passenger cars, SWAG has the right part whatever the vehicle. From engine, steering, chassis and brake parts– a comprehensive range is always available.
