Rubber bushings are the second most important type of joint used for wheel control functions . Rubber bushing joints area special type of combined ball and pivot joint which is free to rotate about its longitudinal, lateral, and vertical axes. The main advantages of rubber bushings result from the rubber’s ability to dampen noise and vibrations. Rubber bushings provide a connection between the suspension link and the vehicle’s body with a (high) degree of rotational freedom. In addition, rubber bushings help reduce the amplitude of the oscillations which result from dynamic loads.
