    Default Rear Crossmember bush replacement

    Hi Guys,

    I think i have been done over once more by replacement suspension bushes

    i have been trying to get my car ready to come off the rotisserie to get it to a shop, its the first time the suspension has gone on since sand blasting..

    I had bought a set of replacement nolathane rear crossmember bushes (part number 49060), which in them selves cost a bomb.. and had the factory bushes pressed out of the crossmember by a mechanic, of course i trusted that the new ones would be ok..

    The bushes fit, however the rubber extend probably about 1cm above and below the crossmember, in comparison, the factory bushes (from what i have documented) are actually sucken below the crossmember metal.. which the factory washers take into account

    So much for a "kit", i can't use the factory washers, and i am left with maybe 4mm of thread left at the end of the bolt to put a nut on (about a 1/3 of the factory nut)..

    Just an update, i neglected to check the usual suspects as i was under the impression that nolathene were the only ones to do them... Turns out superpro, whiteline and nolathane do them.. and the pictures from Nolathanes website show a completely different part... unfortunately for me, i bought these almost 3 years ago, so i didn't like my chances of getting it resolved.

    Bought a set of whiteline replacements..
