THE ROAD TO WHITELINE PLUS
The use of polyurethane in automotive suspension bushings dates back to the early 1970s when race car enthusiasts looked for improved handling and suspension performance without having to resort to solid pivot points and connections. Traditionally, polyurethane bushings and mounts were made from very hard urethane compounds exceeding 100 on the durometer scale; where rubber was much softer and measured less than 58 on the durometer scale. The main reason for the extreme hardness was the use of low grade polyurethanes.
In order to achieve abrasion resistance, tearing and compression set, the polyurethane needed to be very hard. The second reason for this hardness was how the component was designed and manufactured. While high performance polyurethanes were available they were both very expensive and required complex machinery in order to process, mix and cast the component. Few customers would pay for the added expense; especially when the automotive performance aftermarket was selling products at a third of the cost.
After extensive development and testing of materials that would offer strength and durability, geometry retention and memory without the harshness, WHITELINE created a progressive, long-chain polymer compound incorporating polyurethane constituents, which deliver the combined physical advantages of a solid bushing, with the extreme flexibility characteristics of rubber.
That range of product is known as WHITELINE PLUS and delivers LOW SPEED RIDE QUALITY, HIGH SPEED CHASSIS CONTROL
Whiteline Plus polyurethanes provide the softness needed for low vibration, noise and harshness characteristics, while displaying extreme abrasion, tear and cut resistance, and near-zero compression set at lower durometer reading of 70-80. In addition, these performance polyurethanes allowed the polymer chains to be bonded directly to the metal shell, which provided a method of flow control giving the bushing the characteristics of soft ride while on smooth roads, and when under cornering pressure caused the bushing to become firmer for improved suspension performance.
WHITELINE has engineered a wide range of products to cover the common passenger, commercial and 4x4 markets and will continue to grow the range to service new models and escalating demand.
WHITELINE PLUS has been developed with a NO COMPROMISE objective.
It provides the reliability, durability, added safety and ride quality characteristics for everyday vehicles and servicing.
The road holding stability, handling and abrasive resistance for performance and 4x4 vehicles.
The neutral (black) appearance for restorers and racers.
PROGRESSIVE BLACK POLYURETHANE BUSHINGS - FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Key Benefits of WHITELINE PLUS polyurethane bushings:
- The quality of ride of rubber, with the performance of solid links.
- Long lasting durability.
- Resistant to chemicals, oils and weathering.
- Enhanced handling, steering response and road holding stability.
- Increased braking capacities and positive brake pedal feel.
- Wheel alignment rectification and optimization using offset and adjustable bushings and arms
Key Feature of WHITELINE PLUS polyurethane bushings:
As a result of extensive domestic and export research, we identified that primary coloured bushings had a mixed reception, especially in motorsport and restoration markets. As a result range is made black, but not your standard mat black. A WHITELINE PLUS bushing appears black in your hand but hold it to the light to witness its translucent feature.

Compliance Chassis Control Positive steering feel and increased braking capacities
Black Neutral Appearance Less offensive than primary colours ie, red, yellow
Translucency Modern Appeal Differentiation to rubber and other black poly alternatives
Durability Longer lasting than rubber Reliability, longer servicing life

REPLACEMENT SUSPENSION ARMS
All would agree that the time & stress to remove & replace bushings and ball joints to suspension arms is possibly not worth it. Making up press tools & damaging arms are just two of the problems one can endure. Why put yourself through it when you can purchase complete arms, fitted with market leading WHITELINE PLUS polyurethane bushings and premium quality ball joints.
Research proves by purchasing complete arms you can reduce the time taken to do the job by up to 70% which means less stress for the DIY repairer and greater job turnover and profit for fitters/workshops.
CAMBER & CASTER BUSH KITS
WHITELINE offers a range of offset, eccentric adjustable & shim adjustable bush kits to rectify or optimise wheel alignment settings. Kits have been developed to target caster correction or camber correction in order to prolong tyre life and enhance
WHITELINEs eccentric adjustable licensed design allows wheel aligners to dial in incremental wheel alignment settings with simple hand tools.
WHITELINEs shim adjustable kits also provide incremental changes based on shim thickness and the amount of shims used.
