Nolathane Trailing Arm Bushes

I am replacing the upper and lower, front and rear trailing arm bushes with Nolathane ones on my diff, it was gonna cost $220 for all 8 bushes that needed to be pressed, or i could buy all 8 on premade new trailing arms made of better material considering my arms have a couple dents in em i thought, why not, has anyone used these and is it hard to replace 4 trailing arms with the replacments.

Re: Nolathane Trailing Arm Bushes

Why are you changing the arms? Only do this if you are sure that the bushes are shot. There is no advantage in getting the bushes upgraded from my experience. Ask any suspension expert and they will tell you the same. Do not ask a salesman as all they want to do is sell you something that you do not need.

Re: Nolathane Trailing Arm Bushes

I used the premade square steel arms only because the price was very good and they look much neater than the factory crap, but XRO6 is right you prob won't notice the difference.

The change over is easy as pie, just do one arm at a time and get a rubber malet to assist you.

Re: Nolathane Trailing Arm Bushes

don't tight the bolts while the car is up! you will need new bushes in like 1 month! put the car down on a straight piece of road then slide underneath and tighten the bolts on each end. Not doing it this way when you lower your car off the jack or whatever, the bush will be flexed like 80% when siting on a straight road, go over a bumb it will flex to 90%, go over a big bump and it will break then 1month later you will hear the familiar clunk clunk clunk
