How many here have them? Well actual question is did you do them yourself? Is the suspension bushing set something you can do yourself pretty easily or should I just take it to some monkey? From crawling around the underside of my car it looks like everything rubber is about dead. And starting to think the thumping is my left side cv joint
But looks like Im going to have to get new tie rod ends also, boots looking really worn out. Not to mention the sagging door hinges. Oh well.

Well I've had the bushing set in my garage since Christmas, it was a gift from my roomate. I'm guessing the install is gonna be pretty tedious, there's a lot of little parts and you pretty much gotta tear down the entire suspension afaik. Also some of the bushings have to be pressed out. I've also got AGX's collecting dust and I'm waiting until I get the cashflow to pick up Ground Controls before I install it all. At this pace I should have everything installed in time for the end of the season

well, I didnt do the suspension set, but I did do the engine mounts just recently. I did the dogbone (behind the radiator) and the rear mount with ES and the other two with stock mounts. It was pretty easy to do. I had the help of my cousin and it took us about 3.5 hours, most of it was trying to get the dogbone bushing in the brace that holds them, but we gave up and paid a shop to use a press to get it in ($20). The rear can be hard, but we used a lot of silicon spray lube to get it to slide in. Also, while you have the crossmember off, you can do the bushing for the shifter, thats a piece of cake.

Ive helped with the motor mounts well ben's urathne things. ITs not that bad and after doing calum's CRX it doesnt seem that bad on ours either. But thats not what Im concerned about cause I know I can do those with enough time.

I need to do suspension pieces. It appears about everything rubber is about to die on the bottom of my car. So instead of replace might as well upgrade but I want to know what Im getting into. Guess its about time to really find a FSM...or borrow Erics for a while.

Shifter bushing...what shifter bushings?
