Ok all, finished replacing the Motor and Tranny Mounts and it made a huge overall difference. Thanks for all the suggestions.

With that project completed, I have decided to replace the A Arm Bushings. Any suggestions on which bushings or rebuilt A Arms i should use would be much appreciated.

Thanks again...

When installing the bushings should you use some kind of grease? If so what is best.

Thanks, Brent for sharing the video. That one took at least a few hours off my life (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif).

@ken mikos If you're getting new A-arms, get the ones with the drop link brackets already installed. If you have a front sway bar, you've already got em. If you don't, someday you may want to install one and you'll be glad you don't have to mess with adding the brackets.

I'm working on this now, but I'm using stock bushings. They are pretty cheap, about $100 for a set of four. They are (of course) the correct durometer rubber, the difficulty is installation, which I'm working on a solution for that, but I don't know if it can be done without a press.

If anyone is interested, in late 2017 we released a "Heavy Duty" performance version of our Front Control Arm Bushings 901 341 421 02KHD, which are about 30% more firm than the OEM rubber. These do require considerable heat (boiling water) and some kind of press arrangement to install, and are definitely not a slip-fit.

Hi Perry,

do you have a source for the Stock bushings?

Thanks,

Much easier with a tool, hot water, a lot of soft soap and a lot of patience. We have the tool and the bushings (with the correct durometer rubber) for about $65. https://900designs-container.zoeysite.com/c...-install-tool-1
