R32 GTR rear subframe bushings


Recommended Posts

Hey guys I have a few questions as my sub-frame bushings don't have any clear instructions on what they want done with the caps.

I've found a few pictures of other members installing there's but a few guys did it different.

The rear I've seen installed 2 ways. 1) With a large cap on the very top and the small cap on the bottom. and 2) with only the small cap on the bottom. Can anyone please confirm how they installed theres?

Or like this with a cap on the top and a cap on the bottom.

This is the front bushings (Closest to the engine bay) Do you simply install a large cap between the brace and the bushing cap? (Note this isn't tightened down thats why its not straight)

Are you talking about the actual subframe bushes (which are large, metal clad rubber things that need to be pressed in and out of the sockets in the subframe) or are you talking about some sort of pineapple rings that go on in addition to the bushes?  I ask, because what I see in your first photo appears to be pineapple rings, and your second photo appears to be "as Nissan intended" - ie, without pineapple rings, albeit the blue colour inside suggests that they're not factory type bushes.

I'm talking about the actual Nissan intended bushings not pineapples. The metal cups that squish the bushing were used on factory and I can't find if I'm suppose to use them on new bushing's.

Nissan bushings do not look like those big fat black things in your first photo.  A stock Nissan setup looks like the 2nd photo, with what looks like gaps, and those cups hanging about in the open.  If your bushes don't look like Nissan original, and appear to have integrated pineapple rings, then all bets are off when it comes to advice, unless someone here has used that type of bush before.  Where did you get them?  What manufacturer are they?

When using aftermarket bushes they all require different things to be done with the top caps, some need them removed and some need them reinstalled on top where Nissan put them in the first place, that 3rd photo is just straight out wrong

    • thanks for the reference pictures ben. hope all is well good buddy. hope the gtr's arent sucking the wallet to bad these days like my car is lol....cheers mate  
    • VP race fuel like VP 109 ron unleaded is a waste of money compared to E85. Just go flex fuel setup so you can run on pump unleaded or E85 all without draining tanks or switching tunes. You go VP race fuel you will have to change tune when using it, then change back to a pump unleaded tune. VP109 for example will support about the same boost and timing increaes as E85, but it requires the afr's to be a lot leaner than E85 but richer than pump unleaded.
    • Whats your budget? Maybe call Nispro in QLD for quote - they build a lot of VQ and have a turbo kit in development - but id say at least 20k to do it right - oh actually maybe do LS swap will be cheaper but....hmm  im a purist - so id rather stick to VQ35DE or whats the point lol.... just my opinion - do what u want. its your car  
    • Ok sorry I should rephase my question. But good answer haha.  How can I make 400whp that isn't using nitrous. 
    • dyno run would be on VP race fuel or e85 / e98, E85 is not easily accessible by me. Closest pump is 30 min in a direction I do not travel. So while I will go out to get it. It will also get pump gas 93 octane is highest avilable in US so overall power will be down if mix fuels  e50, e30, e10 ect
