Better Brakes & Advanced Auto Parts distribute the complete range of Nolathane suspension components.

Nolathane specialises in the design and manufacture of superior suspension systems for passenger, 4 wheel drives, commercial and performance vehicles.

"Want to handle it- Nolathane it"

Nolathane suspension bushes synchronise your suspension system for optimal safety, handling and performance. They are the most positive link between your vehicle’s springs, struts or shocks.

Nolathane offers alignment correction and adjustment via offset bushes, shims, eccentric centre tubes and adjustable strut mounts. nolothane02.png - small

Unlike soft rubber bushes, which distort under heavy braking or cornering loads, Nolathane bushes maintain alignment settings and offer complete reliability.

  • Improved handling
  • Crisp steering response
  • Boosted braking accuracy & control
  • Prolonged life of suspension bushes and tyres

Better Brakes & Advanced Auto Parts are pleased to announce the addition of King Springs to their list of quality aftermarket products. All popular vehicles including 4WD are covered by the extensive range.

King Springs are respected for their quality and performance. When it comes to spring design and durability King Springs knows neither compromise nor second best. They have achieved this top position from working on the streets, at the race tracks and over the toughest outback terrain there is.

 Locally designed, developed and made, the company uses high quality, high stress X5K spring steel. This X5K steel reduces the amount of steel required per spring and makes each spring approximately 30% lighter. This is matched by the hi-tech manufacturing process which ensures correct load as well as accurate diameter and height.
