    I have a ve/ss sedan that has a loose rear end, when you accelerate it wanders in the back end and does not drive straight. so i am thinking the 4 large subframe mounts that hold the whole rear axle assembly are probably flogged out.
    i did some searching on here without any luck.
    if anyone has done these bushes or had the same problem and solved it any advice tips help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Bob

    i would have a suspension assessment done to track it down, the bush's you mention are what most of us put the void fillers in, to stiffen up rear end, as they do tend to float, your bush's may be shot

    The standard bushes on the rear subframe have 'hollows' in them, or voids.
    There are aftermarket bits that actually fill the 'voids' to stiffen the rear bushes.

    sorry for the questions but,
    so they are not replacements for the standard bush?
    I am happy to replace the bushes, so is there a replacement part that will do what you are si=ugesting and if so please give me a point in the right direction?
    I am thinking i have 75000kms on the car and am happy to replace bushes struts shocks.
    struts and shocks are munroe but i took them off my old ve so they have done 120000kms between the two cars
    Regards
    Bob

    No, they just add to the standard bush.
    Aftermarket bushes are available as well.

    in this pic of the rear end the 4 big blue bush's are what we are talking about, if you go through the superpro listing it will show you the bush's and void fillers too

    I thought this was a Friday thread, was going to be reading about how your back end is always hanging out when you put your foot down :)
    I know i struggle on roundabouts since i got my Cam and Diff done and think my backend is overtaking the front
