Sub frame bushings
Neil, could you post your experiences with these sub frame bushes. I
recently replaced all the wishbone (A-frame) bushes, the suspension
strut top mounting bushes, and the two rear diff bushes (the old ones
were completely shot) that were easy to do on my '84 80q and noticed a
huge improvement in the car - however, there are still some slight
clunks coming from the suspension.
I didn't replace the sub frame bushes because it appeared from Bentley
that you had to remove the subframes . Is this true? How difficult is it?
