Upgrade Your VW Caddy Suspension with Polybush: Enhanced Performance without Compromising Comfort

If you’re a proud owner of a VW Caddy, you’re probably aware of the importance of maintaining a smooth and comfortable ride. Suspension bushes play a crucial role in providing stability, reducing vibrations, and absorbing shocks. While rubber suspension bushes have been the traditional choice, there’s a superior alternative in the market – Polybush!

In this blog, we will discuss why Polybush is a great upgrade over rubber suspension bushes for your VW Caddy, and how it offers a host of benefits without compromising comfort, making it suitable for all types of driving, including leisure and commercial use. *SEE FITTING VIDEO BELOW*

  1. Enhanced Performance: Polybush, made from a unique blend of polyurethane, offers numerous advantages over rubber suspension bushes. Firstly, it provides better suspension geometry, resulting in improved handling and responsiveness. The stiffer nature of Polybush ensures minimal movement, enhancing the overall stability and control of your VW Caddy, especially during cornering or sudden manoeuvres. This upgrade translates into a more enjoyable and safer driving experience.
  2. Durability and Longevity: Rubber suspension bushes tend to wear out faster due to their flexible nature and exposure to elements like heat, oil, and chemicals. Polybush, on the other hand, is highly durable and resistant to these factors. It can withstand harsh conditions and maintains its performance over a longer period. By installing Polybush, you reduce the need for frequent replacements, saving you both time and money in the long run

  3. Vibration and Noise Reduction: Polybush effectively dampens vibrations and reduces noise transmission, enhancing overall comfort. The material’s superior insulation properties minimize road noise, resulting in a quieter cabin. This upgrade allows you to enjoy a smooth and refined driving experience, whether you’re on a long-distance trip or navigating through busy city streets.
  4. Versatility for All Types of Driving: One of the major concerns when upgrading suspension components is the potential compromise of comfort. However, Polybush strikes a perfect balance between performance and ride quality. It is designed to provide a comfortable ride even with its improved handling characteristics. Whether you use your VW Caddy for leisurely activities, family trips, or commercial purposes, Polybush will deliver a smooth and enjoyable driving experience across all driving conditions.
