Thanks guys.

Yup, just ordered the IE subframe and trailing arm bushings.

Anything else needed when replacing springs and shocks?

you can get reinforced stablizer bar ears wielded on the subframe while you have the trailing arms off for bushings...

aad rear shock mounts

Thanks, I did the RSM last year. PITA to get to, but did get rid of a rattle, they were shot.

I don't think I want to start welding.

Anyone happen to have a sub frame bushing removal tool handy?

Thanks

I've got the green IE bushings. Makes a noticeable improvement.

Mark, will you make it to the M Coupe meet?? We need to get your name on the list.

Hope to be there, but planning on being hung over.

My wife and I went to the one last year and it was really fun.
