- From the 1st of February 2013 the SuperPro warranty becomes a Lifetime Warranty with no exclusions.
This means that if a SuperPro product fails, ever, we will replace the product free of charge.
With SuperPros technical superiority in material, design and manufacture a lifetime warranty with no exclusions for off-road, track and competition use is a guarantee we can make with complete confidence.
Our goal is to make SuperPro the only choice of suspension bushings for repair, off-road and performance applications in the mind of workshops and consumers.
Rear Toe Arm Bushings 2009-2015 Forester + 2012-2015 BRZ
Rear Toe Arm Bushings from SuperPro will replace the soft rubber bushings in the '13-'16 Subaru BRZ or '09-'15 Subaru Forester. These polyurethane rear toe control arm bushings will hold the toe angle of the rear wheels, reducing scrubbing of the tires and straightening the thrust angle.
These Toe Arm Bushings will fit:
Thrust and Toe Angle
The thrust angle of your Subaru determines what direction you move and the toe of your rear wheels has a big impact on the thrust angle. On several year models of popular Subaru vehicles, there is an arm that maintains the toe of your rear wheels. There is a ball joint at one end of the arm and a bushing connecting it to the subframe at the other.
The bushing on the toe arm is made of rubber which absorbs a lot of the vibration from the road to the subframe, but rubber is a vulnerable material that degrades with wear and exposure to the elements. Even in good condition these bushings flex and can allow the toe of the rear tires to shift.
Crooked Take-Offs and Worn Tires
When the rear tires are "toe out" then the wheels are pointed away from center causing your Subaru to wander making straight steering difficult. Conversely, when the rear wheels are "toe in" your car will drive straighter but your turns will be less responsive. Also, when the toe angle of your rear wheels is off-center your tires will scrub along instead of rolling as the vehicle moves forward, wearing down the edge of the tire. This will mean a tire replacement sooner rather than later.
The answer is a stiffer connection to hold the toe arm in place and the maximum performance option would be a metal spherical bushing. But if you have a commute like the folks at DST, which includes back roads and a long caliche driveway, then your daily driver is going to be unbearably harsh.
Performance and Comfort
SuperPro Polyurethane Toe Arm Bushings will hold the toe angle much better than rubber but provide a cushion that metal bushings lack. If you're looking for the best balance between performance and comfort then these polyurethane toe arm bushings will deliver.
Along with the increased performance that a consistent rear toe angle provides, these bushings are much more durable than rubber. In Central Texas, we can have pavement melting heat on Monday and iced over roads by Friday, and neither of those conditions are kind to rubber bushings. These polyurethane toe arm bushings will endure all the elements and wear that gets thrown their way and are covered by SuperPro's lifetime warranty which covers racing and off-road applications.
