How Does a Urethane Cushion Make Driving Transport Vehicles More Comfortable?

Driving transport vehicles is notoriously uncomfortable because the heavy loads run roughshod over the shocks. There have been a number of improvements which have attempted to make driving more comfortable, however the urethane cushion has proven to be particularly useful. It is a fairly new technology which is made from the same urethane NIKE uses in their shoes and clothes. The urethane cushion is placed in between the shock springs in order to absorb more of the impact.

One of the first benefits of using a cushion in transport vehicles is noticeably more comfort when driving on bumpy roads and over speed bumps. Functionally, it operates by providing added support to the shocks. This makes the transport vehicle feel more like a regular pickup van a heavy truck burdened with a significant load.

Another noticeable area the cushion offers an improvement is in turning. Since it rests in the coil spring, it prevents leaning when spring tension increases during a sharp turn. This is beneficial both for city driving as well as long-distance driving over winding roads. It is difficult enough to navigate large, bulky transport vehicles through winding roads, especially at high elevations without worrying about leaning due to poor coil spring tension control.

In some tests, using a cushion has shown to reduce driving fatigue. One of the reasons driving long distances seems to wear people out is because the body is constantly absorbing the up-and-down motion of bumpy roads. By minimizing the up-and-down motion, the urethane cushion limits the

Tips To Buy A Lift Kit For Your SUV

An SUV itself is a symbol of class and style. Adding a little touch-up by installing a lift kit to it only adds to the glamor. Make sure that you do not get confused between a parking lift and a lift kit. A parking lift is something which helps in the parking or the repairing process of a car. And what does a lift kit do? It is a part which lifts the frame of an automobile and makes it higher than usual. In short, a parking lift gets used to lift an entire car to a certain height. On the other hand, a lift kit is a modification which lifts either the frame or just the car’s suspension.

What happens when a kit gets installed? It gives the car a higher profile. The wells of the wheels become higher, and therefore, the ordinary tires get replaced with taller tires. There are mainly two types of lift kits: the suspension lifts and the body lifts.

If you take an interest in installing a kit into your SUV and turning it into a true “Road Monster“, you need to know the difference between these two types. Moreover, you must also have a little idea about how to buy them.

Suspension vs. Body

The suspension lift kit is all about high performance. It is an expensive kit, but your car will have enhanced capabilities in rough terrain like a rocky surface or a dirt track. The body lift kit is all about visual effects. It

Tata Safari – Old But Still Going Strong

The Safari is a proper, 5-door SUV developed by Tata Motors. This vehicle happens to be the very first SUV to be designed, developed and mass produced wholly in India. The very first time the Safari touched the roads was 15 years ago. Although it didn’t receive a lot of fans on several counts, the Safari’s performance off road has constantly won it admiration.

When the Safari was launched, back in 1998, it was equipped with a 2.0 litre, 4 cylinder, diesel engine that was turbocharged. A few years later, in 2003, the car received some upgrades such as power steering, better mechanics, improved interiors and so on. But the Safari still drew a lot of flak for its underpowered, harsh engine. As a response, Tata Motors launched a heavily modified Safari in 2005 with a 3.0 litre DiCOR engine. DiCOR stands for Direct injection Common Rail and this engine was indeed the first from Tata Motors which had common rail fuel injection technology. As of now, buyers can order their Tata Safari DiCOR only with a 2.2 litre, 138 bhp, 4 cylinder diesel engine and a 5 speed manual transmission.

One department where the vehicle has shone right from the day it was released is its off roading capability. Despite mixed verdicts, Tata Safari DiCOR reviews have always praised in this regard. The SUV has a high ground clearance of 205mm, high approach and departure angles of 31°, a 30° break-over angle and can wade through water that’s a foot

Easy Steps on How to Install a Cold Air Intake

It increases the gas to air ratio on the engine. This makes it possible for the gasoline to be evenly combusted and more use is gotten from the fuel. Gas mileage, acceleration, torque, and engine horsepower is improved due to added combustion. Installation can be done in few easy steps.

You need a Philips screwdriver, a flat head screw driver, and a torx wrench assortment.

1. Make sure your car is in park and the engine turned off before you start the installation. The emergency brake should also be engaged and the battery’s negative cable disconnected at the hood.

2. Use the flat-head screwdriver to remove clamps that are found around the hose intake on the engine’s throttle body. The screw driver will help make loose the screws that hold the clamp secure.

3. Use the Torx wrench to remove from the cold air tube, the mass air flow unit. The Philips screwdriver or the flat-head can also be used for this job. The sensor can be damaged when removing the mass air flow unit so caution should be taken.

4. Take the air box apart by unclasping the latches on it. The air box should then be removed completely from the engine bay. After this the stock air filter should be located and removed.

5. At the end of the intake tube connecting
