Poly vs solid aluminum bush

Recommended Posts

So all back end stripped and subframe and diff bushing is solid aluminum and everything else polybush


all arms changed including lower and two arms above


now i expected some clunking but god at times it feels like the quick shift is going to break the solid aubframe bush or diff


i am not worried about poly bushes as they have some play but solid has no play


i fear when I clutch kick, it is going to tear the back end off


on slow speeding reversing I can hear fair amount of clunking and knocking and higher speed less of it unless i bean it and shift down from three to two


can someone share their experience please and whether solid bush because of no movement can break?

Solid bush can't/won't break. You're just experiencing all the banging and crashing of mechanical shit that happens behind the isolation of rubber bushes.

Solid bushing of everything will definitely lead to earlier death of some part or other though, as every mechanical bang and crash gets transmitted to somewhere where it used to be buffered.
