This poly rack bushing fits LHD ZF power steering racks and improves steering sensitivity plus response. Increase your FEELING and thusly improve what you're DOING.
Think about it. You’re charging hard towards a corner. Smoothly you back off the gas pedal while turning in towards the… apex that comes up quick! It slips behind you and you ease on some throttle while unwinding the wheel. Then, the steering goes light without warning AND ssSSLIP! Hey!
Speed is scrubbed, the car understeers outwards, and after some tire screeching, the numb non-communicative feeling returns to the steering wheel in your trembling hands. It doesn’t have to be this way!
Stock rack bushings are supplied soft so as to isolate driver and passenger from any vibration. The steering rack is thusly able to deflect out of alignment as the bushings squish during cornering. The car is unable to pass on critical information that the sport driver would otherwise feel through his or her hands. Stiff polyurethane rack bushings eliminate this deflection. They restore steering geometry and tell the driver what’s going on where the rubber meets blacktop.
Sport driving is rewarded when the driver can feel the edge of traction and slip. It is at this razor’s edge where the driver, machine, and road are perfectly balanced. Speed and confidence are maximized. These bushings aren’t the most expensive modification, but to the aggressive driver they are treasure. Combine with solid bronze subframe bushings for serious steering precision. Then step up to these tubular control arms for an ultimate performance solution!
