subframe bushings
 
Im in the middle of installing the subframe bushings and im running into an issue maybe someone can help me with. What holds the bushings in? After putting the bushings in and with the bolt screwed in I can simply pull off the bottom portion of bushing?maybe I missed something any help would be appreciated

Do I reuse any part of the old bushings? Like the metal cap the original bolt was threaded through?

With poly you reuse it, with aluminum you don't.

Easiest way to get them off?

For anyone else having issues easiest way I found after trying for over an hour. Was put it in a vice, heat the hat while putting a socket extension inside the original bushing on the edge of the hat and rubber malleting it

Yes, you need to re-use the metal retainer plates with the poly bushings.

Wish I had that sooner. My bmr instructions failed to mention using the retainers.

Me too, tanur..this weekend...fun wasn't it.?. I pretty much just used the inst. for the torque settings.

Yea it was a blast. Lol. Springs especially the front, front sway bar on front, radius rod bushing and rear uca bushings were what made me swear the most
