  • Diff Bushings

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Energ...item19b71264cb

    I just ordered these, so I figured I'd spread the word. They're alot cheaper than all the other units and will work just as well as anything else.

    I just purchased a set myself. Super easy to install, just make sure you don't mistakenly toss out any of the OE hardware, as you'll need the rear cups for the back, as well as the metal washers for the front.


    And, it probably goes without saying, but this will work on Z32/S14 only (and q45 cars)

      Yep that's what I have. They're listed by ES as z32 diff bushings.

        You might be able to get a local fab shop to make two rear diff bushings for not much more than that. I made a set on my mini lathe and it didn't take that long. A bigger lathe could turn out a pair in maybe 30-45 mins, maybe less.

          It would certainly be hard to get a non 'common' machine shop to rip out them for 30 bucks...considering it's gonna take at least that much in 'time/setup' costs. Gotta remember when you say things like that, that not everyone has the ability to make friends with the local machineist

          i've long debated a mini lathe..hmmmm...maybe summertime

              I can make some too, just dont want to spend the time, I have alot of other things I have to do to the subframe in one day. My S14 is my only car so down time isnt really an option.

              40$ isnt exactly going to break the bank either.

                Does the diff need to be dropped for the bushings to be able to come out, or can you get them out by doing one at a time?

                  you likely need to drop the subframe too. The 2 rear diff bushings are pressed in the subframe. The 2 front ones are just on the diff; you can use a mallet to tap out.

                    You could probably get the front two done and leave the rear sloppy bushings in place, and then go ahead and do the rear.

                    But why not just take it out? It's only 30-40 lbs at most.

                          Haha, yea probably true. We work on big rigs all day, so sometimes I forget the weight of stuff.

                          And on roids...haha, if my newly formed beer gut could only talk. Damn I need to start playing raquetball more often....yeesh!

                          A good floor jack can pull down both with ease...but you only need to pull the diff out, which you can also use a floor jack with.

                            There's all kinds of little local machine/fab shops with a manual lathe that could whip those bushings out in no time. It's not totally uncommon to find a local guy willing to forgo a setup fee, especially if you do a little legwork ahead of time and do a little of the legwork for them(like get some dimensions, maybe walk up with the stock).
