Replacing dogbone mount bush
« on: July 28, 2022, 08:59:02 pm »
I’ve often thought that replacing the two dogbone mounts look like too much trouble without removing the subframe, but I have just watched a YouTube video of someone levering the bottom bush out with a screwdriver.

Thoughts? Easy? Hard?

I’m not talking about inserts (like the Powerflex one) or replacing the dogbone itself, both of which I would say are easy jobs.

Ignore that, I’ve watched another video of the job turning into a car crash. Will stick with the insert! :signLOL:
