Nolathane Spring - shackle bushing Toyota Pickup Front 1980-1985



Model #REV160.0014

Shopper Award

A critical service item for any leaf sprung vehicle. High kilometres and heavy load carrying causes excessive wear on rubber bushings. Nolathane's signature red bushings are made tough and offer outstanding abrasion resistance, high load bearing capability (4WD's, utes and towing), flexibility, increased tensile strength and chemical resistance to oil, grease, ozone and weathering.

With over 40 years of experience, Nolathane remains the number one replacement and enhancement bushing and chassis component brand in Australia and New Zealand and now has a warehouse in California to meet the North American market. Nolathane suspension bushings synchronise your suspension system for optimal safety, handling and performance. They are the links between your vehicle's springs, struts, or shocks.

As the chosen brand by automobile technicians and DIY'ers (Do it Yourself), Nolathane has achieved this via innovations in both material formulations and high quality raw materials, with careful engineering and extensive testing. As a result, these items are a no compromise' option backed up by a warranty.


Whether you intend to rebuild your street machine, toughen your truck, or simply update your everyday suspension bushing Nolathane is the link between your vehicle and its springs, struts, and shock absorbers. Suspension bushings supply the movement and/or mounting points in your vehicle's suspension system. Original rubber suspension bushings are squeezed or chemically bound to the suspension components to which they are fitted. In the case of a metallastic (steel cased) bush, the rubber is compressed at the time of manufacture and chemically bonded to the metal core sleeve and outer steel shell. The rubber bush is generally press-fitted into the suspension component, such as a control arm, then bolted to the chassis. In this approach, the ability of suspension movement or rotation to move is constrained. The Nolathane rubber suspension bush design involves a delicate compromise, as it is enough to permit sufficient rotational movement while retaining alignment settings.


Unlike rubber, Nolathane polyurethane suspension bushings are not bonded by compression. Nolathane bushings are mechanically fitted with a little crush of the urethane substance, and the central pin is lubricated so the component freely pivots without constraint. When combined with Nolathane's ability to retain the shape of the bush, this free pivoting results in a more responsive handling reaction and significantly better suspension control. Technical advancements in suspension design have resulted in many modern automobiles having much enhanced on-road handling. Using Nolathane suspension bushings eliminates suspension weakness and hence retains steering control.


Nolathane bushings increase your suspension's performance in the following ways:
  • Superior abrasion resistance
  • Superior weight carrying capacity (4WD, utes, and towing)
  • Flexibility
  • Strengthening of the tensile component
  • Chemical resistance against oil, grease, ozone, and deterioration caused by weathering
  • Adjustable bushings for alignment correction
  • As a result, it improved grip, steering, and performance
  • Suspension geometry changes less under load, braking, and during turns
  • Increased suspension life and decreased repair time
  • Increased tire life

Nolathane was originally developed to replace brass bushings in hill climb vehicles. As a result, the early formulations were extremely hard, as they were intended to replace brass, not rubber. While it performed admirably in competition, it was far too harsh for everyday street use. Nolathane is available in a variety of durometers (grades of softness/hardness), with the appropriate durometer being chosen for each application. Today's Nolathane products offer more tear, abrasion, and compression resistance for any type of ride.
