Rear sub frame upgrades Update!


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I am going to have the rear sub-frame & diff bushings replaced with urathane and was wondering if it is worth the extra $ to have the camber/toe adjustment added. The extra cost is for the adjustment tabs (2 sets) from IE at around $190, the cost to have them welded in, and then an alignment to make up the negative camber from the lowered springs. The sub frame will have to be out anyway so seems like a good time to do it but still thats around $400 to get rid of around 3 or 4 % negative camber in the rear. I think my guy is reccomending it but you know..... he is not paying for it!! TIA.

He did a great job up front, same thing, dropped sub frame & replaced all bushings, steering coupler, reinforced left engine mount & painted the parts. This will compleat the suspension front to rear, all new bushings, shocks, springs, sway bars, etc.

October 19.......Oh boy how the $$$$ adds up. So I had a cracked subframe mount $60 (x 2)

I needed a seal/gasket kit for the diff, $90 + labor & diff oil,

front brake pads & rotors $150+ labor Shit I am done for a year or two now.
