The shortest pair goes under the radiator support. The remaining bushings should be equal height and go under the firewall and seat areas.

Taller ones (4) are non-rad support. I placed the larger diameter bushings in the front. no instructions for camaro in the energy suspension poly frame bushing kit. I e mailed them and they would'nt respond. It all worked out ok though.

art's69,

Confusing isn't it. I work at Denny's Camaro Parts, we sell mostly reproduction parts for 1st and 2nd gen Camaros, although we have a ton of used stuff as well. We sell many of the subframe bushing kits and I always go over with the customers the proper bushing locations. The large and small outer diameter bushings with the large thru hole are used on the body to frame. The larger ones are used at the back end of the frame to body, the smaller ones are used at the firewall. The large outer diameter bushing with the smaller thru hole are used for the radiator support.

Hope this helps!

Question

I used the Energy Susp. kit too. I hope I did it right. I went the order they are in the package. It looked to me that the 4 bigger ones were the same. I went bottom to top. (bottom) -under frnt seats - (middle) under firewall and (top) - under radiator. (If you know their packageing you know what i'm talking about). Maybe that's why my body alignments a little off now. Let me know if my order is right or if I have to change them. Or maybe since they've been in for months now I can't move them. Thanks

RamJam, you shouldn't have a problem moving them. That is, if they're not in the right positions. The bushing holes are exactly the same diameter on the frame mounts: 1.5".

Thanks Hwy,

I just hope I don't have to. If I only new that the 4 big ones are the same size. I know I have the right ones under the radiator.
