Detailed Description

863 Bushing Kit "863BK"
89-05 Miata control arms

The Supermiata SAE 863 bronze bushing kit replaces all control arm bushings.

Why SAE 863?
  You might be familiar with traditional urethane bushings which rotate on a steel pin. The addition of the 863 bushing in between the urethane bushing and steel pin greatly reduces friction over a urethane on steel kit. So much so that the difference can be felt immediately. Expect to increase damping adjustment on your shocks to compensate for the large decreass in friction compared to a plain urethane or rubber bushing kit. A sintered bushing kit is the next best thing to a pure spherical bearing kit but costs less and will last many times longer due to the superior weather sealing.

What is SAE 863?
 SAE 863 describes the iron-bronze alloy material, also known as "Super Oilite" or iron-copper. It is a sintered (powdered) metal that is cast into the shape of the bearing. The material is impregnated with SAE90W lubricant during casting.

"I already have a urethane bushing kit"
 Our upgrade kit is specifically sized to be compatible with Energy Suspension and Prothane kits. Not compatible with other brands of urethane bushings. Select the Upgrade Kit and we'll send you everything you need to convert your existing Energy Suspension or Prothane urethane bushing kit to SAE863 bronze.

Complete Kit includes everything needed for front and rear:

  • 85A durometer urethane bushings, orange
  • Bronze SAE 863 bushings
  • 4130 CrMo steel pins & thrust washers, Ra 32 finish
  • 2 oz Lube
  • 5 year warranty

22 zerk fittings (optional)   Installing Zerk fittings

 The only part that really wears in our sintered bronze bearing kit is the bronze inserts. They will last many years with just a small application of grease every year or two. You can remove for service or add zerk fittings to re-grease while still on the car. Between the urethane and control arm, we recommend a silcone based water resistant grease like the following:

Super Lube 92150 / 92003 silicone grease
Prothane grease
Energy Suspension Formula 5
3M 08946 silicone paste
Ski-Doo XPS
-Any standard NLGI grade 1 or 2 chassis lube. Synthetics will generally perform better than petroleum based grease.
