About Control Arm Bushess
A Alfa Romeo control arm bush is made from a tough rubber and installed on the front and rear control arms of vehicles to ensure that they are fitted securely to the suspension system. The control arm of a vehicle is responsible for allowing the smooth movement of tyres in line with a vehicle’s body.
The Alfa Romeo control arm bush is a crucial part of the suspension system and should be maintained like any other part of the vehicle. Should one fail, the control arm will have more give and could potentially fail, meaning that the drive will be very uncomfortable over bumpy surfaces.
Because of the rubberised material of the Alfa Romeo control arm bush it is possible that it could crack and deteriorate, particularly if it comes in to contact with oil or dirt. If one of these Alfa Romeo bushes becomes worn it should be replaced quickly as vehicular damage can escalate.
You may notice that your tyres are not wearing evenly, or wear quickly or the drive has become more awkward and bumpy. If this is the case you should also examine the control arms for signs of damage and wear and replace as necessary.
Alfa Romeo trivia
- Due to tax shenanigans, the very first Alfa-branded car was named the 24HP, even though it came with a 25 horsepower 4.1-litre engine. It was quick and could do a satisfying 62mph, despite having wooden spoke wheels.
- In the 1960s, Alfa Romeo shifted their designs and started manufacturing a line of more luxurious models. One of the most popular was the Alfa Romeo 2600, one of which was even owned by the Pope.
- The Alfa Romeo logo has some really weird imagery. There are dashes of the Milanese coat of arms, and a terrifying picture of a snake eating a man. That image comes from the Visconti family crest, who used to rule Milan.
- There was a long period where Alfa Romeo simply stopped selling cars to the USA. Exports stopped in 1995 and didn’t resume again until 2015 when they launched the 4C sports car.
- All car companies have a slogan, but Alfa Romeo never seemed happy with theirs. They have had several, with everything from ‘The family car that wins races’ to ‘Mediocrity is a sin’. In 2020, they’re sticking with ‘Beauty is not enough. Power for your control.’
