Welcome to the SuperPro Training Centre:

When do I use SuperPro Caster Correction Bushes?

  • Slight pull to the left can be counteracted by a Single Offset kit, supplied with an offset bush to be fitted to the passenger side and a standard bush for the driver’s side.

 

  • A strong pull to the left can be overcome by installing the Double Offset kit. One offset bush is fitted to passenger side to increase caster and one is fitted to the driver’s side to decrease caster.

 

  • Where no pull is evident but handling performance can be enhanced a Double Offset kit is used to deliver positive caster to both sides. The vehicle will have improved directional stability; crisper, more responsive steering and improved “return to centre” feel.

Are Spacer Lift Kits Legal in Australia?

Written by

 Top image - lift kit

 

SuperPro acknowledge spacer lifts have an ugly past. Typically they have not been properly engineered or tested by the manufacturers/importer. We have also seen manufacturers make these kits to lift vehicles beyond a safe or legal lift. SuperPro has done the engineering work to get these kits right! We have incorporated each vehicles suspension geometry into the design of every kit including consideration of the solid height to ensure the shock absorber does not bottom out before it strikes the bump stop. The lift height of each kit is unique and the associated hardware is designed and engineered to be safe and legal. No other spacer lifts on the market achieve what SuperPro has.

SuperPro re-invents the Vertical Pivoting Bush

Written by

VPB image 1

 

SuperPro’s vertical pivoting bushes provide a perfect example of how replacing – or upgrading - a standard rubber component with a polyurethane equivalent can provide a series of significant benefits.

Especially those found in modern-design suspension systems and specifically, the front control arms.



 

The VPB design means that all articulation of the suspension is achieved by the flexing of the rubber bush, which inevitably causes distortion, especially under high lateral loads as the rubber tries hard not to tear itself apart. This results in cornering forces and the condition of the road surface moving the front wheels without any driver input and consequently, a momentary misalignment of steering geometry. This can cause vague steering, increased torque-steer and uneven tyre wear.

Each SuperPro VPB is an assembly of four components: a steel encased outer bush that presses into the control arm; a steel tube that fits tightly into the centre of the bush, leaving a chamfered gap at each end to allow movement; and two polyurethane cones that fit neatly over the ends of the extended inner tube. This unique assembly allows the control arm to pivot in the vertical plane with minimal resistance, whist retain positive location in the horizontal plane.

 VPB-Bulletin-img


This ensures that all steering loads and suspension movements are directed to the wheels. The positively located joint means the suspension geometry remains consistent and consequently, this provides excellent feedback and feel through the steering, reduced torquesteer and even tyre wear. And, because a SuperPro equipped arm will pivot freely without the material needing to flex to achieve movement - plus, with the long-lasting properties of SuperPro’s unique blend of polyurethane - a high level of performance can sustained for most of the vehicle’s life.

SuperPro pushes the boundaries of what is possible!

SuperPro is pleased to announce the release of the most technologically advanced Differential Bushings ever produced. The Ford Diff Bush has been a problem part since inception and the associated Ford 'Diff Clunk' an audible issue for Falcon, Fairlane and Territory owners alike, SuperPro has now solved this issue!

The Ford SuperPro Polyelast Hybrid Differential support bushings are the culmination of a year of Research, Development and rigorous testing that have exceeded all expectations in both durability rig tests and in-car trials. In rig testing the bushings have been subjected to almost twice the peak loads experienced by these bushing in the vehicle for 200000 cycles and at the conclusion of the test have exhibited no signs of degradation or wear. In the test vehicles the results have proven that these bushings perform better than even the highest expectations, absolutely silent!

Developing the right material was only part of the solution; some innovative thinking was required to overcome all the issues.This gave rise to Polyelast Hybrid. This technology uses the advanced Polyelast material in combination with SuperPro Polyurethane. Polyelast offers a high degree of isolation and the SuperPro Polyurethane acts as a progressive stopper. This provides progressive isolation and protection of the Polyelast, resulting in outstanding durability.

Insulating the Polyurethane and Polyelast material from the heat transfer was achieved by utilising a lightweight Aluminium sleeve with a composite thermal protection layer was critical in solving the durability issues.

At last there is a solution that incorporates all the best properties of the SuperPro and the original equipment bushing, rolls it into one bush that solves everything and will do so, forever!

Available Now for the following vehicle models:

  • Ford Falcon BF Sedan (2002-2007)
  • Ford Falcon FG Sedan (2008+)
  • Ford Fairlane BF Sedan (2002-2007)

Caster Correction Bushings

Written by

SuperPro has developed and is continually expanding its range of Caster Correction Bushes. Field reports and tests determined that caster correction was needed on many front wheel drive cars. To correct the “pull to one side” steering problem, the following options were developed:

 

Option One:

To improve control, use the original manufacture settings.

Option Two:

To counteract a slight pull to the passenger side, we provide an increase of caster to the passenger side and standard setting of caster on the drivers side.

Option Three:

To counteract a strong pull to the passengers side, we provide an increase of caster to the passenger side and a decrease of caster to the drivers side.

Option Four:

To enhance performance, we provide both sides with increased positive caster.

  • THESE OPTIONS ARE BASED ON BOTH LEFT HAND DRIVE & RIGHT HAND DRIVE VEHICLES. AN EXAMPLE CAN BE SEEN BELOW.



Example:

 

MITSUBISHI LANCER CC & CE & FTO SPORTS COUPE PROTON SATRIA, PERSONA M21 SPORTS COUPE

When fitted to the rear position of the front lower control arm, this series of bushes change the caster angle of the front suspension appox +/- .8deg by moving the fulcrum point of the control arm either in or out thus moving the lower ball joint position either forward or rearward.

There are 4 kits to choose from for both LHD & RHD vehicles, all giving a different result.

Rack Mount Bushings

Written by

SPF1834K

Part No: SPF1834K, SPF1835K




Many vehicle manufacturers use rubber-mounting systems for their steering rack and pinions. There are many reasons for this, however the main include reduction in road shock and transfer of road noise, while providing some tolerance for misalignment of location mounts.

SuperPro have produced a number of cost effective rack mounts to overcome this situation and to provide positive location of the rack with no deterioration of the mounting material. Polyurethane is not effected by mineral oils, ultra-violet light, acids and most chemicals. Replacement of rack mounts with polyurethane ensures that all steering movements will be communicated to the steering road wheels without loss of motion or transfer of road shock and noise, vibration and harshness (NVH).

As the vehicles age, leakage of lubricating oils and the effect of ultraviolet light cause the original mounts to degrade. The end results of this is movement of the rack in its mounting location causing the vehicle to wander, introducing instability and change in the rolling toe. While these are obviously critical problems, replacement mountings are traditionally expensive or no longer exist in original equipment catalogues.
