Does your vehicle not ride smoothly? Learn how your car’s bearings are similar to the cartilage in your joints & how replacing them helps!
What seems more worn out lately, you, or your vehicle’s bushings?
Do you know what bushings are?
How about this?
Are you feeling the age in your joints? Think of the cartilage in your body’s joints. Both the bushings and the cartilage serve in helping handle the impact of bumps in the road.
Hi, I’m Nancy at Kneble’s Auto Service Center.
Before I tell you why it’s important to replace worn-out bushings, other than the loud rattling when driving over bumps, like us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram, and of course, subscribe to our YouTube channel so you can get this tip and other automotive pointers.
Bushings are made up of rubber and other materials, to help prevent friction between metal parts. You will find bushings mounted with your steering and suspension parts, such as control arm bushings, stabilizer bushings, and there are even subframe bushings.
Over time, rubber bushings, get brittle, crack, and/or rip. It’s not uncommon for your technician to recommend replacing the bushings.
The recommendation will reduce loud rattling while driving over bumps. It will also prevent the vibration of the vehicle you may feel or possibly a loud road noise.
The age of the bushings and type of driving determine when it’s time to replace them.
Make sure you replace both sides at the same time for an even feel.
Extend your vehicle’s life with this fix.
