SubFrame Bushing locations info with Picture

Ok, I have spent the last two days looking for this information, finding contradicting information and just found this picture and thought I would post it so that others will have the info.

Re: SubFrame Bushing locations info with Picture

Ok, I have been looking into this as well and this is totally different to what I found, both online and on a friends Firebird.

The firebird has the large rubber with the steel tube in it coming up from underneath at the shell mounts and the smaller rubber between the subframe and body.

The radiator panel has the big rubber with steel tube fitted from above with the smaller rubber between the rad panel and subframe, nut and washer touches the subframe as you look under the front frame horns.

I am now super confused. I don't want to put mine back wrong...

Re: SubFrame Bushing locations info with Picture

thanks for posting the page from the AIM as well. I have that also, but it did not help me as there are no numbers on the subframe bushings I have.

Re: SubFrame Bushing locations info with Picture

Based on the picture you posted, I'm assuming that you have the Prothane bushings. What are you confused about?

Re: SubFrame Bushing locations info with Picture

No, I have standard rubber bushings. there are 2 different thicknesses that mount the subframe to the body. I did not get any instructions with them to tell me which thickness went in which location.

Re: SubFrame Bushing locations info with Picture

What company did you buy them from? Prothane puts the thicker bushing under the seat, while Energy puts the thicker bushing at the firewall. But those are of course poly bushings.

Re: SubFrame Bushing locations info with Picture

I bought them a couple of years ago, I do not remember where I got them. Seems strange to me that different companies put the thicker ones in different places because that is going to change all of the front sheetmetal alignment.

I was really just posting this to hopefully help individuals in the future.

I have one of the original shop manuals for my '68... looks like it is time to do some digging in there.

Re: SubFrame Bushing locations info with Picture

I have an original service and overhaul manual, there is no info on the thicknesses of the bushings, at least not that I have found. Let me know if you find anything different.
