body mount bushings - ????

Just got a set of body mount bushings off ebay, and either my memory is completely bad or these look nothing like the one's which were originally on the car. From what I've been told the Large ones go in the middle, the middle ones go in the back, and the small ones go in the front. However the inserts for these seem way to big and the original bolts almost go completely through them? Not to mention with the misc sizes and shapes it seems like I have way to many bushings, and none of them are correct. I've included a picture...what do you guys think?

oh yeah, what about powder coating the bushing shims....good or bad idea?

Gotta really know what you want when buying off e-bay. Sellers get a notion they know a part fits 9 cars and 8 years and list them as such and in reality they might fit just a couple years of 1 or 2 cars...

Looks like everything is there, just in a different configuration than I'm used to. The metal sleeves are usually already installed in the subframe bushings. These go between the body and the subframe. The bolts should also have a large washer.

You dont have too many bushings there. Bushings go both on top of the frame and between the frame and the bolt.

Yep - kind of a sammich.

The small ones go in the core support, with the top part of the bushing on top of the core support (under the hood, not on the bottom of the subframe)

Biggens in the middle, mediums to the rear.

Re: body mount bushings - ????

"The rear cushion set is the smallest; the outside diameter of both cushions measure about 2-1/8 in. The center cushion set is a little different. The upper cushion (with the washer and bushing) has an outside diameter of 2-1/2 in. And the outside portion of this cushion can be identified by its height of 7/8 in. This height is measured without the washer. For all practical purposes, the cushions that don't have a washer for the rear and center cushion sets are interchangeable with one another. If you're not sure which ones they are, trial fit them onto the step on washered cushions. They should fit easily but snugly. The cushion that's used for the radiator core support also has an outside diameter of 2-1/2 in., just like the center cushion. However, it can be differentiated from the center cushion by its height; it's only 9/16 in. tall excluding the washer. And because of its unique smaller bushing diameter, only one of the washerless cushions will fit it."

Radiator Support: 30-50 Ft Lbs
Subframe to Body: 75-95 Ft Lbs
