    Rear Bush replacement

    Hi,

    I'm planning to replace the Rear Suspension bushes and the Rear Suspension subframe mountings in the next few weeks.

    Is replacing the subframe mounting a simple case of removing the old one and replacing with a new one?

    When removing the rear suspension arm do you remove the two bolts though the bushes or do you need to remove the four bolts holding the Support brackets to the subframe as mentioned in the Haynes manual?


    Thanks

    Chris

    It's fairly straightforward.
    You can see how I did it on our website.

        It’s as easy to drop the whole diff sub frame assembly and then just replace the whole lot and give it a paint

          Not if you weren't planning to take the exhaust off or disconnect the brakes, driveshafts and shocks!

              And now I have an exhaust that comes apart though is still a bitch (by far and away the worst bit) it’s still really worth doing
              and remember use Robsports poly bushes as they are so much better than the other Rs ones
