New Porsche 964 bushing kit from Elephant Racing
There is a growing number of Porsche 964s suffering from spring plate bushing failure. Until now, the only way of repairing the problem was to purchase a new set of spring plates.
However, Elephant Racing (the Santa Clara, CA-based suspension gurus) have now developed a replacement Porsche 964 spring plate bushing kit, allowing 964 owners to retain the original plates, reducing the cost of repair.
According to Elephant Racing’s president, Chuck Moreland, “Customers kept asking us for a way to replace the bushings without having to buy new spring plates”.
In order to satisfy the new demand, Elephant Racing went about developing a spring plate bushing kit for the Porsche 964 – the first major reworking of the 911 platform when it was released in 1989.
The design of the replacement parts is based on the factory’s original Porsche 964 bushings. However, the elastomeric layer of the bushing is slightly harder, reducing deflection while still maintaining similar noise and vibration insulation.
The monoball cartridge used to envelope the elastomeric layer features a maintenance-free, weather-sealed design.
