Ok, My car is a '69 camaro, and will be a street car, with a small block. I am currently NOT going to put weld in subframe connectors on the car, but may want to in the future. I remember being told that if I do use the subframe connectors, I need solid bushing like aluminum or del-a-lum or my floor will crack. I don't want to replace the bushings again when I put on the connectors, I'ld rather just put in what I need now. I'm looking for suggestions, pros or cons and prices. I'ld also like to hear from anyone with solid bushings that doesn't use subframe connectors-how do you like them/ is the ride ruff? also how thick are these? I may just make a set (I have a large piece of del-a-lum I'm just dying to make something out of). And for the final question, I read in another thread while I searched, that I shouldn't use solid bushings on the radiator support....Why? Thanks for all the help everyone!!!!-JOE-

Radio, I used original GM rubber frame bushings I bought them from Jim at heartbeat city in Detroit,The reason was for noise I dont want my car to be so rough Poly bushing will cause this,however poly or aluminum ones will last forever. The original GM ones are good for 20 yrs and with a street machine longer with no foul weather to rot them.I also used competion engineering frame connectors bolt in type, I also bolted them thru the front subframe from each side. I hate to have to cut up the floor to install weld in connectors Hope this helps Garry.
