Bushing Lubrication

WHITELINE suspension components are manufactured to very high standards utilising the very latest and most up to date synthetic elastomer technology available worldwide.

In the majority of applications the WHITELINE bushings act as a flexible bearing and must be greased at the time of assembly.

What type of grease do you supply with your bushes?
Grease has been supplied in the kits where required and must be used to optimise bushing performance and durability.

Our grease has been formulated from a reinforced No. 2 lithium complex base and selected additives with molybdenum disulphide for mechanical stability, extreme pressure qualities for extended life and a high melting or drop point of 2300C minimum.

Supplied grease should only be applied to the bores and outer flanges of all bushes and components - do not grease the outside surfaces of bushes and components.

To gain optimum performance from WHITELINE products take the following precautions when installing:

1. Ensure all suspension parts are free from rust, scale, paint and previous rubber deposits.

2. Please use these hints along with any instructions provided when fitting Whiteline products. Vehicle manufacturers manual should be used to ensure Whiteline warranty compliance.

3. Shackle and mounting pins, control arm and spring eyes and shoulders must show no major signs of pitting or damage - any damaged components must be replaced or repaired to vehicle manufacturer’s tolerances.

4. Grease has been supplied in the kits where required and must be used to optimise bush performance and durability. Grease has been formulated from a reinforced No. 2 lithium complex base and selected additives with molybdenum disulphide for mechanical stability, extreme pressure qualities for extended life and a high melting or drop point be applied to the bores and outer flanges of all bushes and components - do not grease the outside surfaces of bushes and components.

5. Tighten mounting bolts with the vehicle at normal ride height, to minimise risk of premature bush failure.

NOTE: The major noise producing factor in polyurethane is incorrect fitment and uncleaned mating surfaces.

DO NOT grease pressed fit surfaces (eg. outer shell) or outside of shackles bushes.
