Whilst modern 4x4’s have improved, they remain a compromise between ride, handling and traction in both on and off-road situations. Tyre wear on larger 4WD’s can be an issue and raising these vehicles can make the situation worse. Accordingly, many large, raised 4WD’s suffer from nervous steering and vibration at highway speeds. Nolathane polyurethane suspension bushings synchronise your 4WD suspension system for optimal safety, handling & performance. They are the most positive link between your vehicle and its springs, shocks, and other suspension components. Unlike soft rubber bushings, which distort under braking, cornering, or towing loads, Nolathane polyurethane bushings maintain alignment settings and offer complete reliability.
We offer solutions for most of the popular 4x4 models including:
TOYOTA LAND CRUISER
BUSHING AND GREASEABLE SHACKLE/PIN KIT
The Shackles and Fixed Pins are often overlooked when upgrading the suspension of a 4X4. Original shackles and fixed pins corrode and destroy the bushings and it is the leaf spring bushings that stabilise the movement of the rear axle. Worn or inferior bushes in this area will cause the solid rear axle to move and impart rear end passive steer to the vehicle leading to the vehicle 'wandering' all over the road and be unstable under heavy braking. This can be especially noticeable carrying a load or towing a boat or caravan. By fitting the complete package of Nolathane Greaseable Shackles, Fixed Pins and Bushing kit the rear end of any 4X4 will handle just about anything that is thrown at it!
4X4 SWAY BAR LINKS
Links are a common service item due to either worn or over compliant bushings/ joints and possibly bent or snapped centre bodies. Upgrade with Nolathane links boasting heavy duty joints and uprated centre body that outlast and outperform the original equipment.
UPPER CONTROL ARMS FOR YOUR 4X4
A short fall of the modern-day IFS 4x4 is the adjustment range provided for successful wheel alignments, this becomes even more of an issue when the vehicle is lifted by more than 1 inch. Not only does the vehicle run into camber and caster issues, but ball joint articulation and clearance issues to the coil over strut at ride and droop height. The new Nolathane offset UCA (Upper Control Arm) is an all-in-one solution to these issues. Featuring built in increases to camber and caster angles, greater clearance to the coil over strut and more articulation of the arm by virtue of new maintenance free GIIRO bushing technology.
4X4 TRAILING ARMS
Most would agree that the time and stress to remove and replace bushings to suspension arms can be hard to justify. Making up press tools and damaging arms are just two of the problems one can endure. Why put yourself through it when you can purchase complete arms, fitted with known and trusted Nolathane bushings.
4X4 LIFT KITS
Nolathane lift kits are a quick and easy way to lift a standard height dual or single cab 4x4 ute and still maintain the standard suspension. Nolathane lift kits have been put through their paces by our R and D to ensure the lift for each application maintains a safe working height for the vehicles standard suspension.
4X4 CAMBER BOLT KITS
Nolathane OE replacement camber bolts are designed to replace the old worn/rusted factory lower inner control arm camber bolts, perfect for wheel alignment correction and enhancing camber for road applications.
4X4 ADJUSTABLE PANHARD RODS
Heavy duty adjustable Panhard rods are designed for serious 4x4 enthusiasts. Suitable for raised vehicles to reset axle location and wheel alignment rectification. Low compliance bushings are used to minimise noise, vibration & harshness and maximise longevity.
HEADLIGHT - HEIGHT SENSOR ADJUSTER BRACKET KITS
This Nolathane headlight adjuster bracket allows for lifted vehicles to retain the use of the factory self-levelling headlights - keeping the headlights within spec during any driving condition.
