Even though our company Prekom is specialized in Porsche and Ferrari steering and suspension parts, part of our team is huge overland travel enthusiast.
Being on the road, looking for off the beaten paths with like-minded friends, all kinds of things had happened – from broken parts (shock absorbers, power steering box sector shaft, CV joints, drop links) to pull out polyurethane castor bushings.
A true headache when you are miles away from civilization.
As soon as the travel ended, it was time to fix the cars. What better place to look for some 4×4 parts than on your workplace?
We have more than 40 years of experiences with production and industrial renovation of different steering and suspension car parts – from tuning, racing, to off-road vehicles.
Offset castor bushings and heavy duty extended sway bars
Having our own vulcanized department, we immediately started to work on the 5,60mm offset castor rubber bushings for Toyota Landcruiser 80 (suitable also for 78/79/105 and Nissan Patrol GQ/GU). Not just hearing, but seeing the problems from the road (pulled-out when driving the Romanian Carpathian Mountains), we decided to forget about the polyurethane. It does not give any flexibility and can cause pull-outs due to strong forces when driving off-road.
Instead of polyurethane we decided for harder rubber. The rubber gives more flexibility to the part and makes it more endurance. When the right rubber shores are used, the bushings give the best quality ride on and off-road.
The other problematic part was from Toyota Landcruiser 100. The rear sway bar links broke after driven the first sand dunes when crossing the Sahara Desert in Tunisia. Luckily the crossing was still possible, but it would be a better filling if the car would have all its steering and suspension parts in its place.
We manufacture all our parts in house, using the best raw materials (steel, aluminum, rubber) from trusted EU suppliers, who meet our exact standards and quality control. But I guess our biggest advantage is, that we are not just a regular producer, but at the same time also day to day user of the parts in practice, knowing exactly what 4×4 user wants and needs.
Currently we only stock the 5,60mm offset castor bushings for Toyota Landcruiser 78/79/80/105 and Nissan Patrol GQ/GU and the heavy duty rear extended sway bar links for Toyota Landcruiser 100, as this is what our overland travel team needed.

“As much as fixing the car in the middle of no-where is exciting and a good story to tell, nothing bits pure enjoyment of a great off-road drive and a nice cold beer with friends besides the evening camp fire, instead of long hours repairing the car ….”
