Default Rear Subframe bushing spacers.

Hi guys. I have started turning up some Delrin bushings for my Budget Track Bugeye. Does anyone have any of the rear subframe spacing bushes on hand that the might be able to measure for me? The below pic is just for reference I donít want to be accused of stealing anybodyís proprietary design.

So far Iíve made some bushes for the rear diff carrier bracket and a set of lock bolt sleeves. This is all experimental as Iím learning as I go but hopefully it should work.

Cheers for the offer bru1212. The dimensions would be great at anytime as I am running the car in itís first Hillclimb this weekend and then we have a 6 week break over Christmas so the car will be up on stands being played with over that time.

After a few bushes some cheap coil overs and a good 4 wheel alignment it is certainly turning in and hooking up nicely but it seems to have a bit of bumpsteer so I will be trying to fix that as well.

Could you share those dimensions with the class? I'm trying to find a bushing to replace some obsolete OEM parts and if these are close, I could just buy Impreza bushings.

Edit because this has been TICs’ bread and butter for a long time.
If you haven’t tried the race version it really makes a difference. I ended up buying
the comfort version after the race as it was too much for me. I’m not even
sure what the ones on the left are for it’s been like 10yrs

dude - if you're going that far then just drop the subframes, push out the old bushings, and make full replacements. No point in putting sandwich pieces in there if you're making parts.

Can you tell me the dims (length, OD, lip OD, lip thickness, etc) for your EJ rear diff bushings? If they work as replacements for the XT6 & RX I'd love to scoop some bushings up from you guys!

That is what I will be doing now. The new race season doesnít start until the end of January so I have a bit of time up my sleeve to make the car immobile for a while.
