While bored I noticed

While I was bored and lay polishing the underside of the car I spotted a rubber bush left !
As most regular viewers know I have poly bushed the "whole" car or so I thought,
I spotted that the diff brace was still rubber, I remember looking at some solid bushes but there seems a few types so didnt bother,
I have a small stock of spare poly for the pre bushed arms/parts I sell on the famous bay,
Well Im sat looking and swear it looks the same as a trailing arm bush, so I set about removing the brace from the car, diff disconnected and 2 bolts that hold it are too long to remove with drive shafts in place etc but all off and in my hand withing the hour,

Old bushes took under 2 minutes to remove, they are so soft and pushed out,

And I was right, the Trailing arm bushes are about 5 mm too deep so I just trimmed 1 bush down and did the same with the tube,
trailing arm bushes can be had cheaper then the diff bushes so all`s good.
