    Was helping my son do some suspension work on this car for a friend. Had it up on a lift and noticed the rubber bushings for the subframe/engine cradle were rotted out. Never have seen this on a car in my area (NC), so this car must have lived part of its life in the northern rust belt.

    I have been checking around on the 'net for a source for this bushings and related hardware with no luck. Found GMpartsdirect and can buy all eight bushings and hardware for about $300 total... :eek:

    Anyone know of an aftermarket source for these bushings and related hardware that are more reasonable?

    If all else fails, my son will probably go to local pull a part and get parts off of a rust free car.

    thanks,

    Jay
