Better than OE?

The experts at Meyle have re-engineered control arm bushings for a wide range of makes and models and the latest offering benefits the Mazda 3 and 5 series models. The rugged full rubber mount is designed to outlast the hydro bushing on the OE version and it comes with a four-year warranty. Technical director Sven Nielsen says: “Unlike their OE counterparts, the MEYLE bushings are made from steel and high-grade natural rubber, dispensing with all fluid”, Nielsen continues. “The MEYLE-HD bushing is therefore immune to premature failure caused by fluid leakage. To ensure the part offers identical damping capabilities, the forces acting on the components have been calculated using the finite element method (FEM), allowing the MEYLE bushing to provide similar dynamic driving properties as the OE hydro bushing. “
