General Handling of SuperFlex Products
- Remove all dust, previous bush residue, paint or old grease from contact surfaces, prior to fitment.
- Ensure any original outer shell is not inadvertently left in place. A common mistake where the old rubber bush has unbonded from its shell. In some instances the outer shell is intentionally left in place, as described in models and descriptions on our price lists.
- Do not fit new bushes to worn, rusty, or distorted fittings. Worn components must be replaced.
- Lightly coat bush contact surfaces with assembly lubricant (where supplied) prior to fitment.
- Insert the stainless steel tubes (where applicable) after the bushes are installed
into their housing.
- Immersing high-interference fit bushes in warm water, can assist fitting in a very cold climate.
- Before the final tightening, suspension arms must be at normal ride height.
- When replacing original componentry, ensure that all nuts and bolts are tightened to original manufacturer’s specifications.
- Bushes must not come into contact with alcohol-based solvents such as MEK, methanol, or methylated spirit.
