Bushes come in all shapes and sizes depending on the application and are usually made from brass, steel or rubber.
A common type of bush used in many applications is a ‘metalastic’ bush, this bush features a metal outer and inner while the centre of the bush is made from rubber.
During the routine maintenance of a spring, you may find that the bush has deteriorated over time. Owen Springs stock over 10,000 bushes in various shapes, sizes and materials. We can also advise whether an eye bush needs replacing during a spring repair.
