Rear Trailing Arm Bushings

Is it worth changing the bushings when I get some BMR rear trailing arms put on?

I think it's worth it, but they are a bear to get out... Make sure that you have a good C-Clamp 6" or larger and I used a 2" pipe fitting with a cap as a receiver to press the bushing into. Before you start pressing it be sure to cut away all excess on both sides of the bushings.

Hope this helps.

I was just gonna get my shop to do it. They are going to be doing a lot to my car before I get back to the states and was wondering if I should get them to do the bushings. Thanks for your input.

If you don't do it, it will be the weak point in the trailing arms subframe to knuckle link. Is it totally necessary??? I would do it though.

I always recommend replacing the outer bushings anytime you upgrade the trailing arms. They work together and should be replaced together if possible. The only reason we do not include them with our trailing arms is because there are other companies that sell these bushings as well.

Our outer trailing arm bushings are manufactured from the same durometer rating polyurethane that we use on our Trailing arm bushings.
