Larko explains do’s and don’ts of bushing lubrication

Nolathane suspension components are manufactured to very high standards utilising the very latest and most up to date synthetic elastomer technology available worldwide. In the majority of applications the Nolathane bushings act as a flexible bearing and must be greased at the time of assembly.

What type of grease do we supply with our bushings?
Grease has been supplied in the kits where required and must be used to optimise bushing performance and durability.
Our grease has been formulated from a reinforced No. 2 lithium complex base and selected additives with molybdenum disulphide for mechanical stability, extreme pressure qualities for extended life and a high melting or drop point of 2,300°C minimum.
Supplied grease should only be applied to the bores and outer flanges of all bushings and components - do not grease the outside surfaces of bushings and components.

To gain optimum performance from Nolathane products, please take the following precautions when installing:
1. Ensure all suspension parts are free from rust, scale, paint and previous rubber deposits.
2. Please use these hints along with any instructions provided when fitting Nolathane products. Vehicle manufacturers manual should be used to ensure Nolathane warranty compliance.
3. Shackle and mounting pins, control arm and spring eyes and shoulders must show no major signs of pitting or damage - any damaged components must be replaced or repaired to vehicle manufacturer’s tolerances.
4. Grease has been supplied in the kits where required and must be used to optimise bushing performance and durability. Grease has been formulated from a reinforced No. 2 lithium complex base and selected additives with molybdenum disulphide for mechanical stability, extreme pressure qualities for extended life and a high melting or drop point be applied to the bores and outer flanges of all bushings and components – again, do not grease the outside surfaces of bushings and components.
5. Tighten mounting bolts with the vehicle at normal ride height, to minimise risk of premature bushing failure.

NOTE: The major noise producing factor in polyurethane is incorrect fitment and uncleaned mating surfaces.
