Renault Clio MK3 197 / 200 Billet Subframe Bushes
Here at Carbonwurks not only do we produce carbon fibre parts but also metal components too. In recent years we have increasingly been working more on track and race specific vehicles, this has enlightened us to various products that could either do with being re-designed due to an inferior element or a part that needs to be produced as nothing is currently available.
The Clio 197/200 now being the age of car it is, various components will have worn out over time with the Subframe bushing being one of them. As far as we are aware, there are no replacement options either from Renault directly or an aftermarket version for these 197/200 models with the subframe bushing. We have taken it upon ourselves to design and produce a solid bush which has been CNC machined from a single piece of Aluminium and hard anodised for increased protection from the elements. The upgraded billet bushings will increase the stiffness of the bush significantly and reduce play and movement in the subframe itself. The upsides are improve chassis control and helping reduce wheel tramp/skipping as well as general weight transfer over the front axle.
These bushes are designed as a motorsports part to maximum chassis control and therefore may increase NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) into the cabin due to the completely solid nature of the bush replacing the rubber factory option.
A great upgrade for those looking to improve chassis performance on track and/or those who cannot find a replacement for the factory rubber bushes.
