VMN also offers suspension front bushes kit for your vehicle. On an IFS ute, the main bushes encountered are those at the lower eyes of the shock and also at the top spring seat. As your vehicle ages, it is important to check the condition of these bushes. If the lower bushes collapse, the Strut can travel up further that the design allows for.
If the bump stops don’t engage under these conditions, the shock is likely to become bent or even snap in half. It is recommended that these are checked regularly. The lower bushes are relatively cheap so if you are heading out for a long trip to Cape York or The Kimberleys, it may not be a bad idea to replace them before you go.
