CONJUNTOS DEL CUBO DE LA RUEDA: SIETE CARACTERÍSTICAS A TENER EN CUENTA CUANDO EL TIEMPO DE ACTIVIDAD MÁXIMO ES CRÍTICO
Mevotech has developed a proprietary testing program integrating suspension dynamics with ISO (International Organization for Standardization), ASTM (American Society For Testing and Materials), MPIF (Metal powder industry federation), GMW( General Motors Worldwide) and SAE (Society Of Automotive Engineers) global standards and publications to validate our designs and deliver the performance you need.
The mandate of our testing program is to create parts that deliver high durability and a service life beyond that available from aftermarket competitors. Measuring results from tests such as Axial & Radial Play, Swing & Rotational Torque and Pull-Out and Push-Out Strength, is how Mevotech ensures the very best in part workmanship and resilience.
When analyzing changes in a vehicle’s ride and looking for failures, control arm bushings are often overlooked. These bushings take most of the force during braking, accelerating and cornering. Their performance is especially relevant for suspension health in aftermarket vehicles. As the bushings in control arms wear, additional loading is placed on the vehicle’s suspension system, creating unwanted tire camber. For tire life and ride quality it’s critical that your vehicle’s bushings be in good working order, but first you need to recognize the signs of failure. Here are 5 indicators of bushing failure to watch out for:
- A feeling of pulling when braking or accelerating
- Uneven tire wear from left to right
- Tire wear patterns that show signs of camber wear
- A clunking noise during accelerating or braking
- A loose feeling in the steering when turning corners
