Subframe Bushes For Stageas....

Recommended Posts

Hey, just got my old rear subframe bushes out and now looking at buying new ones as the frame is being powedercoated. This is for a C34 stagea, none of that M35 shit here :P

Now, my questions are:

Are they the same as the silvias and skylines??? I know the s15 and s14 subframes fit into the C34 stageas, but with a couple of mods, are the mods bushes related?

Also where is the best place to get them from?? All I find are from UK and even then they are the solid aluminium ones. They might be a bit noisy for a road car.

Thanks for the help Fellas and Fellettes :D

thanks, didnt realise they were so damn expensive tho, all the ones i found were the 120 mark incl shipping... but then again, they were aluminium.

i did a google search and google never helped me find any useful information...... figured, google + stagea = shit

AFAIK they all (skyline/silvia/stagea) use the same outer size bush. there are some differences in how high the bush sits above the subframe (causing a gap), and the r32 v r33/r34 bushes also have the centre hole offset in the bush.

So...it is very likely stagea matches one of the other cars....but I have nfi which one. If I was guessing I would go r33 gtr.

I've been looking at these Bushes and the W92447 kit is recommended for R32 GTR/GT4, R33GTR and R34 GTR

I can do them for $170 a set. Postage to pretty much anywhere in Australia; won't go over about $10

As Duncan has intimated; The gap is indeed set by how far up the bush sits in the subframe, and also gives an idea of the optimum penetration of the bush.

It can also influence the centre hole offset; but generally in a good way. :woot:

I can has Double Entendré? :whistling:

hahahaha :D

PM me your details and ill sort it out with you.

Also, are these slightly stiffer than standard ones?

Yep definitely; but they don't use bone jarring hard grades of Polyurethane in the Whiteline ones.

I'll PM you tonight. :thumbsup:

sorry i stop at single entendre. double is too complex for me.

just trying to make sure the tone of the stag section is as low as the forced induction bullshit section in time for school holidays :D

one final tip, always lube the shaft before you put it into the bush, otrherwise it can be tricky for everyone.

I just looked at the link, it says they need to be installed into the original shell, so I'm assuming u need to leave the outer casing of the standard bush in the cradle and fit them into that?

I really don't know; I never installed them.

Also, Bronx had an issue with the bushes; the Stagea appears to have one pair of GTS-t bushes in the front, and one pair of GTR bushes in the rear.

Definitely worth checking bush lengths prior to ordering.

    • Well, try the new studs first, in case the US sourced studs are actually the problem. But given that the head is off the engine, at least it won't be too hard for someone to install helicoils if it turns out the holes are stuffed. You don't want to just run a tap or chaser through there if by doing so you leave behind 3/10ths of f**k all thread and the studs just pull straight out when you torque up the manifold nuts.
    • Hey everyone, I’m having a bit of a crisis and would like some advice.  I am in the process of assembling a head I had gotten back after NAPREC did their work. I had the exhaust studs removed prior to sending it to the machine shop, but afterwards when I tried threading in new studs, they wouldn’t go in straight. They would thread in smoothly by hand with almost no effort, but it doesn’t go in straight (noticeably circular motion) and eventually stops about halfway in. I had a couple go in perfectly straight with no effort, but when I removed them to try it again, they no longer when in straight and had the same issue as the others. The studs I’m using are M8x1.25, which I read was the standard. I did some research and decided to buy a chaser kit and new studs IEE NZ just in case. Has anyone experienced this? How screwed am I? Do I just need to run a chaser or tap and try again? Prefer a chaser because I heard taps can destroy existing threads.    Note: I also have a new set of intake studs that went straight in just fine that I bought from IEE NZ. I bought the exhaust studs from the U.S.
    • Photos. What you describe sounds impossible, given how the arms are assembled to the upright.
    • Hello everyone.  Since the last stint of turbo upgrades, the intake plumbing from air filter to turbo was made up of sections of ally pipe and silicone bends. This was done as the stock suction pipe was so restrictive, it was noticable on the dyno. The configuration and layout of the m35 engine bay meant that the intake plumbing was too close to the exhaust manifold, even in contact with the heat sheild in one spot. Apart from that i had to use the first section of the stock suction pipe bolted onto the turbo. Although the setup was much better than the stock suction pipe, it still caused some restriction and excesive heat into the incoming air. Its like trying to suck a thickshake through a thin soft drink straw, possible, but you gotta work really hard. Then add the heat...for those that may not know, the hotter the air, the further the oxygen molecules are apart and the less explosive a given area of air is when mixed with fuel, hence, why intercoolers work (compressing air makes the molecules move faster which also generates heat). Water injection and nitrous oxide injection also use the same principle.  As the M35 Stagea intake and suction pipe options on the market are very very limited, i decided to fabricate my own from the turbo to the filter and include one silicone joiner to allow for engine twist.  If anyone is interested while I'm in the process, I could manufacture a couple more but you gotta let me know soon. I'll post some pictures soon.
    • Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone else has run into a similar issue. I recently installed ikeya Formula -15mm upper camber arms and lowered the car a bit. Right after the upright knuckle arm started to hit the upper camber arm making the car bottom out in while driving over small bumps in corners or dips on the highway. (Not even pushing the car) I was running HKS hipermax IVgt coils with 8K springs up front. Thought if i changed out the springs for 10K it would solve the problem, it did not.. Arms are still hitting. I asked a guy on instagram who is running the same upper arms, 8K springs up front and even a bit lower than my car sits. Guy has no problem of the arms hitting. Anyone else that has run into this issue or might have an idea of what could be the issue? I been told they might be installed backwards but the arms are as good as symmetrical and they fitted perfectly the way they are installed now.
