Ridewell Suspensions's new composite FiberTech bushing is the result of more than a year of collaborative development with the firm's European custom bushing supplier.

The FiberTech bushing offers high frictional resistance to bushing slippage after installation, requires low force to install and remove, and is exceptionally durable due to a special bushing and eye interface. The bushing has a self-preserving nature when subjected to radial overloads and is securely retained to the eye without adhesives or clamping.

FiberTech is solidly designed to offer durability and improved suspension roll stability over “cavity”-style bushings. There is no need to orient the bushing upon installation, as is required for cavity bushings.

This bushing will be available on several new Ridewell suspensions for various applications and capacities.
