P2 bushings are a type of split taper bushings that are used vibration isolators. The split taper bushing mounts effortlessly on sheaves and sprockets
, and are made to withstand the torque produced in power transmission. P2 bushings have a double-split steel, flanged design that makes them more adaptable regardless of the shaft size which also improves the hold strength of the bushing. Also, a P2 bushing will have a keyway to help lock it in place on the shaft. A good example of where P2 bushings
are used is in the exhaust system where they can replace worn-out bushings to prevent the exhaust from flopping while driving. The bushing will also reduce exhaust vibration and prevent the exhaust tip from touching the car’s rear bumper.
