About Axle Bush
The Juke Nissan axle bush is a steel and rubber unit which is of a stubby tubular shape, with a central smaller steel tube suspended in hard moulded rubber which accommodates the connecting bolt.
It's located on the joint between the axle and the chassis or subframe.
The Juke Nissan axle bush allows the axle to move with the suspension keeping the vehicle from deviating and allowing the suspension to absorb fluctuations in the road surface and the forces associated with turning.
Over time the Juke Nissan axle bush can become worn and the rubber begin to break down and become detached from the steel structure of the bush. This can result in metal to metal contact causing an audible knocking sound when the suspension moves and an instability in the handling of the vehicle. The renewal of the bushes require specialist tools and may require disconnection of the braking system.
Nissan Juke trivia
- The reason for the Nissan Juke’s quite classical look is that it’s based on the famous ‘coke bottle styling’ that was first seen in the 1962 Studebaker Avanti Gran Turismo. The look involves prominent wheel arches and slim side windows.
- You can personalise a Nissan Juke with what Nissan calls the Juke Colour Studio. The program lets you choose multiple colours and trim designs, and even has a preset selection of colour coordinated choices.
- The original marketing launch for the Nissan Juke included a fantastic Star Wars advert that featured Stormtroopers.
- The name Juke was chosen because it has two implications. It means to dance, but it also means to change directions, which Nissan believed would suggest agility.
- The Sunderland plant that manufactures the Nissan Juke exports the vehicle across Europe, to Australia, and New Zealand. For every other country in the world, the Japanese plant makes the Juke.
