How may people would be interested in these bushing for the rear sub frame.
The will be made out of polyurethane. One soft for street and a harder one for the track.
I should be getting the Prototype in the next few weeks, (will post pics)
The price $140 for all four pieces depending on how people interested.(
It will not be necessary to remove the rear sub frame from the car for the installation of the new one.

He isn't offering sway bar-chassis busings.... He's making 'subframe' bushings, the pancake ones. I'd be interested but I just started the process of having them made for me as well so it's a week too late for me to jump on the bandwagon. Nice idea though, those are hard to come by. Did you buy a new OEM unit to get your specs from?

I've got some spare new poly subframe bushings if anyone wants them. PM me and I'll take photos. I believe they're Energy Suspension.

I did a fair amount of 'digging' and didn't find ANY subframe bushings for the rear besides Noltec, which I don't think are made any more. You sure you have REAR bushings there and not 4 for the FRONT?

I think he means that you can let it hang off the subframe bolt and slip these on and jack it back together.

I hope not. They won't be in there tight enough if they aren't put in with a press.

I have solid delrin in my race car and they seem to be holding up just fine.... I would think that solid is the key for the racers... Also delrin is easy to machine...!

These can also be made out of delrin without a problem but the cost is a little more and they are precision cnc lathed.

I want some of these ASAP. I have a 1G rear subframe sitting in my garage that I've been putting off installing along with a 4 bolt rear. I was just about to order these bushings in the OEM style.

Also, from what I understand, solid is what you always want when it comes to these. I was even considering a set of those aluminum ones that (I believe) Shearer sells.

The hardest one is going to be out of UHMW.
Which to me is very hard but this will be a little more $$

It is possible to machine OR pour poly, but you can only machine delrin?

Which poly? The etheylenes, propylenes, and urethanes are all manufactured in the same way as the delrins, teflons and others in that they are mixed, but not at level commonly available to the end user. Those, among others, are almost exclusively cast (rough: rods, sheets), and machined down into useable parts.

You could however readily acquire straight urethane (IIRC) and pour it into a mold though.

So long as you had the right dimensions, anyone machine these with a lathe.

Here's what I've got left:





Energy Suspension bushing numbers read (from top to bottom):
1008
1009
3174

Flat washer-like black pieces on right in second picture read:
1018
1020

Can anyone confirm where these go?

The only subframe bushings that Energy Susp. makes are for the front. They do not offer them for the rear.

There was a company that made polygraphite bushings for 1G's a few years ago but I don't think they're around anymore. You might have a set of those. Most Energy Suspension bushings I've seen are red.

Actually I think Energy Suspension did make full 1G bushing kits at one time but they've probably discontinued them since they didn't sell well.

Gotcha, I thought they only did the front. Could you possibly take a look at them and grab the part numbers off of them?
