Madness Polyurethane High Performance Front Control Arm Bushings for the MINI Cooper S, Cooper, Clubman and Countryman Paceman, Roadster
NOW AVAILABLE DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, PRE-PRESSED BUSHINGS IN FACTORY HOUSINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Replace your worn out tired stock rubber bushings with our High Performance Polyurethane Bushings. These bushings are the perfect replacement if your old bushings are worn out or cracked. Most cars we see here in the Northwest with over 80k miles need these bushings replaced and we have good roads up here. Improve your MINI Cooper's handling performance by replacing the stock flexible rubber bushing with our Poly bushings.
There are many benefits to replacing the stock front bushings including: more precision, basically your suspension settings remain exactly where you set them because the polyurethane material does not compress or flex like the stock rubber units. This is critical to the enthusiast, racer or autocrosser.
Other benefits include easy installation. Other units on the market require welding the units in to keep them in place. Our bushings have a dual stop to keep them in place without movement. Also other bushings on the market made of steel and aluminum tend to transmit a significant amount of vibration to the steering system making everyday driving no so comfortable. Our Poly bushings tend to dampen this vibration and not transmit it to the steering wheel.
Bushing kit includes front pair.A core charge of $99 will be refunded when cores are returned.
Should Be a OEM Option

Now this is how a Mini should handle. Steering is smooth and responsive. When you turn the wheel the Mini turns now. I had no idea how sloppy the OEM setup was until now. I have better sense of the road with out the harsh feel of a solid Bushing. I recommend this product to anyone and everyone that drives spirited, Auto-X's, or Tracks their Mini. This product is a 10 in my book
Better than Alta Prss!!!!!!!!!!!

George thank you for this product! After struggling with the Alta prss system for months I finally decided to try your set of front control arm bushings. Man what a difference! The alta bushings made alot of noise which I could never dial out and the also kept slipping out of place, what a nightmare! i finally went to the dealer and purchased new bushing housings $100! and started fresh with your setup. Now after months of using them the car simply feels better, no noise, less vibration, better handling and they have stayed in place. In short better performance for less money, wish I would have seen them sooner. Thanks Again! A. Diarii
A great addition!

I was surprised to find little obvious change as I drove away, until I turned right and gave it a bit of gas. The car turned faster than I was expecting, and the tail end a little lighter. I presume that this is because the front tires are now gripping better, due to greatly reduced change in Toe during speed and directional transitions. So I headed for some twisties, and found that the car is considerably more predictable when stressed, and much smoother thru transitions during braking, easing off, and acceleratng after the apex.. The condition and slant of the road has a lot less effect on the direction the car wants to go, and at the same time, the feel of the road condition is slightly less dulled. Other than that, I did not notice any obvious change in noise, vibration, or harshness at the wheel. It's also noticeable that the tighter steering rewards smoothness at the wheel - once much of the slop of rubber bushings is gone, even a little twitch or un smooth motion can shift your line very quickly during a corner.
