I would like to rebuild the front suspension on my 69. At the same time I was wondering if the subframe bushings could be changed without taking the entire front end of the car apart? By the way, what is better for bushings - polyurethane or rubber? I looked for info in the suspension forum but didn't seem to find waht I was looking for. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

i replaced mine with urethane bushings and without taking anything apart, be sure to spray the bolts good with penetrating oil and let them soak a while before trying to remove them. be sure to use a jack and support the frame when taking the rear bushings out, then lower it just enough to replace the bushing. oh, and just do one bushing at a time

67freak,

How did you replace the bushings next to the firewall (middle mounts) using your method? Did you loosen the rear ones a bit for clearance?

Ive got aluminum bushings in mine. No noticable roughness in ride. It does seem to put power to the ground a little quicker though

You need to loosen one side at a time in order to jack the body up. Try a search and you will be reading for days.

I think it would be wise if you get the bushings that come with new hardware. Luckily I bought mine with hardware before I started, because if I hadn't the project would have been on hold until I could get some. I discovered my hardware was not much more than clumps of rust after I got the bushings out.
