Hydraulic bushings perform the same function as hydromounts, namely that of isolating and damping vehicle vibration. Hydraulic bushings have an especially compact design. The parts are so cleverly designed in terms of their geometry that one component can assume functions divided up among a number of different components within the hydromount.
With the ability to mold two different compounds within the same bushing, these products satisfy a wider range of performance targets by providing different vehicle responses in two different directions.
Fluid inside the inertia track is tuned to work as an absorber to reduce travel and vibration.
