Bushings - How many - where are they?

Hey guys. I have my engine out so good time to do bushings. Cheap but needed fix.

From what I read,

Under radiator
I see one under firewall heater box.

Links on my searches of old posts are mostly dead.

How many and where are the rest?


Thank you!!


ps, not sure if this matters but I redid the leafs already.

Re: Bushings - How many - where are they?

I agree on the polygraphite's, great stuff.
At least back when I bought mine, the "hardware kit" was a separate part number though. watch for that, you'd hate to have a box of new bushings with no bolts, sleeves, or washers!

If you're looking for handling from your car, I'd urge solid metal bushings.

Re: Bushings - How many - where are they?

I would also recommend a tube of anti-seize to coat the threads during assembly.
I would go with solid mounts - only need the one spacer between the s/frame and body as the the OE bolt & washer will clamp all of it together.

Snowball Effect happens as now you should install s/frame connectors.
