We are a Polyurethane bushing manufacturer, supplying the independent aftermarket in South Africa and internationally for over 20 years. A key feature of our success is identifying market needs, as well as tooling and manufacturing new bushes with a quick turnaround time. In-house technologies have been developed over the years with unique design features for our products. We have achieved great international success with the PSB brand in the U.S.A. & Europe, and are now looking forward to rolling out this new branding in South Africa.
Polyurethane is a recognised performance product and it has a far greater (typically three times) durability than OEM rubber parts. We offer a lifetime warranty on our bushings (excluding spring bushes). Suspension bushes are some of the most highly stressed components fitted to a motor car. They undergo enormous strains and in the most arduous of conditions with no maintenance or lubrication. Our PSB polyurethane bushes will last longer, standing up to road debris, chemicals, oils, compression, and load. The design of our bushings make them much easier and quicker to install than the OEM rubber parts.
The goal of directors Richard Malan and Pierre Theron over the past twenty three years is to offer a high quality value-for-money polyurethane bushing. In this new venture under the PSB branding, rather than only supplying bushes to be sold, are establishing a network of Full Service Distributors that can refurbish, repurpose & repair a wide array of suspension parts using the PSB components. These distributors will support both the independent enthusiast and also workshop repairer. Another key feature of PSB is the great variety of vehicles and applications that we supply parts for.
Polyurethane maintains a consistent performance over many years without deterioration (often for the lifetime of the vehicle). Rubber is good for the first year or two, but then deteriorates progressively and affects the vehicles handling.
Polyurethane does not squeak if the component being repaired is properly cleaned with soapy water and has lubrication applied when fitting the new bushes.
Ideally purchase the matching left and right bushing kit on a vehicle. Otherwise, if possible, the full kits (where available) on the full front end and/or rear end of the vehicle.
Our bushings are designed to fit easily without any special tools. Removing the original bushings can be tricky however. If you have mechanical ability or a technician friend they can be installed in a short period of time.
Lifetime warranty by the current car owner. Spring bushings have a six months warranty. Warranties are made with the original purchase receipt.
They are components made to cushion moving mechanical parts attached to the vehicle chassis.
Cost cost cost. Rubber is much cheaper for the car manufacturers than polyurethane. Also when bushings wear out, parts can be replaced, generating sales for the manufacturers.
Our bushings are made to fit the original manufacturers components and specifications. They may not fit certain aftermarket replacement parts that are not to the original specifications.
We strive to create new and innovative polyurethane bushings that cater to our clients needs, so your requests are welcome! Please supply as much information as possible.
