Bushings, like a child, should be seen and not heard. However, when bushings and mounts start learning how to kick a fit… all sorts of thumping, bumping, creaking and even squealing can arise.
Bushings help to absorb small amounts of shock and keep suspension components in the right places. Over time, the elements take their toll on the soft squishy rubber. As such, the bush hardens and starts to crack / split / tear.
As the bushing hardens, it also begins to fail. Alignment can go off, tyres may then wear prematurely & unevenly, knocking sounds will be introduced and vehicle handling will become floppy.
Cracking of the rubber bushing occurs naturally over time. This reduces the effectiveness of the rubber bushing in absorbing shock thats attempting to make its way to the cabin.
When bushings aren’t able to complete their job, they cause all sorts of havoc like premature tyre wear and reduced effectiveness of your cars natural handling abilities
