Lancia Delta HF integrale Polyurethane Suspension Bushings
Choose your first step to bring your Lancia Delta HF integrale back to its old glory.
Over the years the OEM rubber suspension bushings tend to wear out and consequently the Delta will tend to loose its precise steering and will start to follow any road imperfection, making the whole ride quite wobbly and unpleasant. Especially if the rear suspension bushings are worn out, this can lead to very unpredictable rear end reactions like over steer.
On all our Delta rebuilds the replacement of the bushings is one of the first things we always do. This will drastically change the ride and precision of your car, and iss something we recommend to do beforehand any upgrade to the supension in any way i.e. struts and springs. As the bushing will work now in a different angle and existing problems will be amplified.
We offer the Bushings in three different variants:
Purple - Road Series bushes improve your cars’ road holding and chassis performance by controlling the amount of unwanted flex in the suspension. They offer Prolonged tyre life, Improved performance, Increased safety, Greater cost-effectiveness
Dark Grey - For Modern Day Classics Heritage bushes are manufactured using modern day materials with properties biased for the road. These dark grey coloured bushes will improve any collector’s car, whilst retaining the same standard appearance of a rubber bush.
Black - The Black Series bushes are manufactured using our Black 95 Shore A compound to provide maximum control of chassis geometry. They are designed for the Track, ready to Race and are engineered to be the best

Why Polyurethane Bushes?
Polyurethane has been with us as a specialised plastic for some thirty years. However recent advances have now made it possible to engineer very special properties into this exciting material. 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.
The material they are manufactured from is a rubber compound containing natural products which deteriorate with age. It becomes softer and more pliable, resisting the forces placed on it less and less. Therefore allowing more and more movement of suspension components and offering less and less control over the suspension geometry.
This in turn causes accelerated tyre wear, braking instability and poor handling. This is the single biggest reason you can instantly tell the difference driving a three year old car compared to a showroom new one. However even new cars will benefit from POWERFLEX bushes because of their superior design they offer much more effective control of the suspension components to a much greater extent than normal rubber items.
POWERFLEX for prolonged tyre life.With the technological advances in this material it has been possible to overcome the common problem associated with harder bushes which is increased noise. By correctly engineering the polyurethane compound, bushes can be made 25-30% stiffer than new rubber items but with exactly the same noise absorbing properties.
