Why Fit Polybush Steering Rack Bushes – Ford Escort MK2
If you own a MK2 Ford Escort, you probably know how important the steering system is to the overall driving experience, so why fit Polybush steering rack bushes on your Ford Escort MK2.
A worn-out or loose steering system can cause instability and unpredictable handling, making the car difficult to control, especially at high speeds or on the track. That’s where Polybush steering rack bushes come in. Polybush steering rack bushes 40C (Small) and 40D (Large) are a performance upgrade that replaces the standard rubber bushings in the steering rack. These bushings are designed to provide a more precise and responsive steering feel, improving the car’s handling characteristics andgiving the driver more confidence on the road or the track.
Here are some benefits of installing Polybush steering rack bushes on your Mk2 Ford Escort:
Improved steering response
Polybush steering rack bushes are made from a high-performance polyurethane material that provides a firmer and more responsive feel compared to standard rubber bushings.
This translates into more precise steering control, making the car easier to drive and manoeuvre, especially at high speeds or when taking sharp turns.
Reduced steering play
Over time, the standard rubber bushings in the steering rack can wear out and become loose, causing excess play in the steering system. This can make the car feel unstable and unpredictable, making it difficult to control, especially on the track. Polybush steering rack bushes are designed to eliminate this play, providing a more direct connection between the steering wheel and the wheels.
Polyurethane is a more durable material than rubber, which means that Polybush steering rack bushes are designed to last longer than the standard rubber bushings. This is especially important for track use or racing, where the steering system is put under more stress than normal driving conditions.
Easy to install
Polybush steering rack bushes are designed to be a direct replacement for the standard rubber bushings, which means that they can be installed easily with basic hand tools. This makes them a great option for anyone who wants to upgrade their steering system without having to make any major modifications.
