Subframe Bushings - '86 5KCSTQ


Sorry for the undoubtedly elementary question.  I have been waiting
for some warm weather to replace both front and rear subframe bushings.
I plan on having them pressed in and out.  My car has 214K miles so
I don't want to "risk" using any of the "home remedies" published and
used by some on this list.

Anyway the question is, can I remove the entire subframe without anything
falling?  I just want to take the whole thing off and let the press
have at it!

Also, I would like to propose something to all that subscribe to this list.
The archives are WONDERFUL!  Lots of great info but at times what one
is looking for is hard to find.  This is _not_ a poke at the esteemed

I generally search by subject.  How to R&R subframe bushings might
be under 4000, 5000, 5K, bushings, suspension,...

My proposal is that we have a subject line like the one I have posted.
The item you are seeking help on/with followed by the year and model.
There will certainly be exceptions, multiple question posts, etc. but
maybe we as the users and beneficiaries of this list can help better
organize the archives.

Thanks for your indulgence,

Mark Pollan, '86 5KCSTQ 214K Miles and about to get bushings, bearings
and struts!
