Subframe Bushings Empty
PostSubject: Subframe Bushings   Subframe Bushings EmptyMon May 12, 2008 8:58 am

Last time my trans was out one of the subframe bolts tightened further than it should and I knew the bushings were history. Mileage ~210,000 miles and the bushings are 11-12 years old. It is a pain to get the part numbers for the bushings as they are relatively confusing in the dealership info. Position 1 is the front, then 2 is the next back and 3 being the furthest back.

Here's pics of the old ones

On position 1 and 3 top bushings there is a hard ring on one end. That ring faces down to sit on the subframe Here's a pic of the ring

One of these parts had had given and collapsed. Luckily a junkyard wasn't far away. If I were to do it again, I'd get them as new.

Tough to tell on this pic, the holes in the subframe aren't perfect circles. They have two flat sides to them. This way the bushings fit in and can't turn.

The top piece fits inside the bottom bushing. I found some caliper lube to help fit them back together.

This one had seen better days

As far as I can tell they were replaced when I had the Gimps transmission rebuilt. They look new.
