Elephant Racing Front/Rear Monoball Cartridges

These little gems will hold your camber settings lap after lap. If you want to be fast, your suspension pickup points must be rigid to hold suspension geometry in check even under the heaviest corner loads. Pivots points need to be friction free. Heavy corner loads generated by today's stickier tire compounds easily compress and distort rubber bushings making it impossible to hold suspension settings. Camber, caster and toe flop around along with the bushings.

Elephant Racing monoball cartridges replace the compliant upper strut and rear trailing arm rubber bushings with hardened-steel precision spherical bearings. Since they can't compress, these monoballs hold suspension settings under the heaviest corner loads. Driver feedback becomes precise and positive.
  • Precision hardened-steel spherical bearings
  • Proprietary Weather Seal to prevent corrosion/contamination
  • Eliminates rubber bushing compression
  • Maintains alignment settings through turns
  • Improves feel and driver feedback
The cartridges are pre-assembled and install easily into factory camber plates using hand tools (can even be secured with a safety wire). Rear monoballs slide right into factory trailing arms. The proprietary weather seal design ensures years of trouble free service.

Combine with Elephant Racing's triangulated strut brace to achieve a rigid front suspension geometry that maintains settings under extreme braking and cornering loads.

Rear Monoball cartridges are now available in weather-sealed (for ultimate longevity) or unsealed versions. The rebuild kits can be used for any Elephant Racing rear monoball cartridge.

Suspension Strut Braces

If you, DE, track, race or even just drive your car hard, and are looking for a performance upgrade, a strut brace is an easy, effective way to improve your suspension. They mount between the shock or strut towers and reduce deflection of the towers under hard cornering.

Coil Springs

A simple way to improve and/or change the handling characteristics of your car is to change out the coil springs. Pelican Parts is here to help.
100 Lb Street Springs. Ideal replacement for sagging stock springs. Excellent all-around ride and car control. Ride height at the rear fender lip is about 2 1/2".

Coil Overs

Rebel S Racing (RSR) Products 914 Rear Coil Over Kit gives quick and easy infinite ride height adjustment to Bilstein or Koni rear shocks.
  • Ideal for proper corner balancing setup.
  • Progressive or Tender/Main spring combinations can be used resulting in a modern comfortable yet very well handling ride.
  • Square threaded design is stronger than traditional threads and actually locks the spring perch in place under load, this is backed up by a nylon tipped set screw for extra security.
  • Utilizes lightweight 2.25" ID springs (NOT included) to reduce overall weight compared to heavier stock 914 rear springs. Spring perch adapters are optional for use with 2.5" ID springs.
  • All components are anodized for great durability and appearance.
NOTEALL: Springs and Bilstein Shocks are NOT included. Use with 2.25" ID Coil springs - Eibach or Hyperco recommended.

Kit includes: T6-6061 Threaded Sleeves, Upper Spring Hats, Adj. Lower Spring Perches, Additional flat washers and snap rings)

Ball Joint, Control Arm, and Bushing Kits

Elephant Racing's PolyBronze bearings have a rigid bronze bearing core that does not deform. The polyurethane jacket absorbs mount irregularities while the bronze inner bearing remains true, providing a free-moving machined-fit that rides on a precision race. Provided grease fittings make re-lubrication a breeze and a figure 8 groove keeps grease in place. This means no squeaks and a smooth ride quality.

Elephant Racing's proprietary-design Low-Friction Control Arm Mounts allow for free control arm movement, eliminating any potential for binding. Elephant Racing has corrected a key factory design limitation; their mounts self-align in all axis, becoming collinear to avoid binding as the arm moves through its range of motion. The kit includes everything required to upgrade one car. Factory rear mounts are replaced with their self-aligning mounts. Factory front mounts are retained and augmented with self-aligning washers.

Replace your tired suspension bushings with Elephant's original equipment-type rubber replacements to restore original ride and performance. Front control arm rubber bushings are now available as a kit for self-installation. In addition to a complete set of 4 rubber bushings, the kit includes their proprietary installation tools and instructions which are essential for successful installation. You'll need a sturdy pipe clamp or shop press to complete the install.

Rubber trailing arm bushings are now available in DIY kit form. In addition to a complete set of 4 OEM spec rubber bushings and two new pivot shafts, the kit includes our proprietary installation tools (patent pending) and instructions which are essential for successful installation. Use a pipe clamp or shop press to complete the install.


Rebel Racing Products' new front A-arm bushing set provides a semi-solid and super low friction design intended for both street cars and fully dedicated track machines. The maintenance free, replaceable bushing inserts are guaranteed to last as long as you own your car. Front and rear bushing housings are self-aligning to provide an easy installation with a co-linear relationship for ideal A-arm and suspension function. Zero deflection at suspension pivot points will provide both street and race cars with optimal geometry. Electro-polished stainless steel inner races combined with the super low friction coefficient of the bushing sleeves, allows the spring and shock to do the work without having resistance from the bonded rubber bushings or undersized polyurethane types. This performance upgrade in turn produces a more tunable, predictable, and more comfortable vehicle.
  • Super low coefficients of dynamic friction
  • Utilizes replaceable Teflon impregnated self lubricating thermoplastic polymer bushing liners
  • Electro-polished stainless steel inner races
  • Billet 6061 CNC machined front and rear bushing housings
  • Replaces factory stamped steel front and rear rubber housings
  • Self-aligning housings provide co-linear operation
  • Easy do-it-yourself installation with detailed instructions included
  • Provides zero deflection of front control arm pivot points
  • Guaranteed to last as long as you own your car
  • Proprietary design
  • Sold in complete sets of 4 bushings (completes one car)

As a front suspension flex point, the rubber mount is a critical component in Porsche 911, 912, 914 and 930 suspensions. Original rubber mounts sag over time, so this easy-to-install mount kit was produced for replacing old rubber mounts. This kit is perfect for all street and race applications. The bushings are stiffer than original rubber mounts, yet are soft enough for supreme drivability on street and track. Made of a poly-graphite compound, this mount system keeps camber and caster adjustments at maximum specifications. This one-time fix can be installed on both sides within about 40 minutes. No re-alignment is necessary.
