I will absolutely not come up there and help you. LOL Sorry, that has to be the most barren stretch of highway.
Any way...I believe the best way to do this is one side at a time. Do a search on this subject it has been covered many times. Mine came out almost effortlessly, the advantages of living in the desert. Check out this post http://www.camaros.net/forum/Forum7/HTML/000602.html it is really quite simple, just be patient.
Hope this helps. Sean

Check out your local bookstore. I forget the exact name of the book that I have, but it shows you step by step how to do it. I'll be doing mine here shortly. I think the book is called the Camaro owner's guide or something.

On a related note, I'm wondering if body mount bushings and subframe bushings are one in the same, or different? If I get a complete subframe bushing kit, does this include the body mount bushings or not? If not, which ones are which? I'm confused....KZ

John, if you buy the complete subframe kit you should be all set. I think its just a terminology thing. Body mount kits are just that, a body mounting kit for the body to the frame. Subframe or fullframe its a body mount kit. Because Camaro's only have subframes and not fullframes most people just call it a subframe bushing kit rather than a body mount kit. If you asked for a body mount kit for a Camaro it would be a subframe bushing kit. Gotta be a terminology thing. A body mount kit is a subframe mount kit because your mounting the body to the frame with body mounts weather its a fullframe car or a subframe car.

Sometimes there is a differentiation between body mounts and radiator support mounts. The rad mounts are also sold separately so just check if you're getting 4 or 6, which would then include the front radiator ones.

I ordered a body mount kit from NPD and it came with body and radiator mounting bushings plus all bolts and washers. It replaced all the old parts exactly.
