    Rear subframe bushes

    Morning all. So I am in process of refurbishing my rear subframe and going solid bushes. My question is when I remove old bushes on diff and mounts do I cut the sleeves or just the rubber and center sleeve? As I've seen ppl having issues with putting new bushes in as they cut the sleeves. Thanks by the way going for driftworks solids

    I had to retain the sleeves for Energy subframe bushes. I think it will differ according to the manufacturer. Might be worth a call to DW to ask.

    I remember removing the sleeves for powerflex. Funny enough I need to check if this is still the case.

    Yeah you'll have to remove them. Lots of guides online, not the most fun of jobs! - Assuming they fit the same as GKTech solid bushes.

    I removed the sleeves to fit powerflex. They are hard work. In the end I took them over to a mechanic who cut them out with a gas torch.

    Iíll have to ask Jim how it is going as he had my complete suspension setup
