The GKTECH solid subframe bushes are a direct replacement of the standard items and ensure that movement of the subframe is kept to a minimum.
They eliminate axle tramp whilst also raising the subframe up to 10mm which helps to correct the roll center on lowered vehicles. We also supply shims to keep it at OEM height should you so wish. The factory front and the subframe braces can also be used.

What's the advantage of using the GKTech solid rear subframe bushes?
The solid bushes offer a more solid rear end which equals to a better driver control and feel for the rear end. The Gktech solid bushes also raise the subframe 10mm, improving roll centre correction.
Is there anything else needed for installation?
No, you can use your OEM hardware. In terms of the bushes themselves, they will arrive as shown in the product photo.
Can I install this myself? If so how long will installation take?
Yes, provided you have general mechanical knowledge they are relitively straightforward. Installation time should be around 1 hour once the subframe is out. However, being a suspension componentwe recommend only a trained professional to install this product.
Do these cause much vibration/noise in the cabin?
Not really. Obviously anything solid or more rigid is going to cause an increase in noise and vibration however I'd hardly say that it's noticeable. Chances are if you're installing these you've already got coilovers, your car is lowered, you've got an aftermarket exhaust etc. etc.
Do these bushes change the height of the subframe?
Yes, they raise the subframe up to 10mm, which improves the roll center.
Will I have to get a wheel alignment after installing these?
Considering the subframe has been removed and refitted up to 10mm higher, this will change your alignment. If any suspension changes are made we do recommend a wheel alignment.
Do I need to remove the OEM inner sleeve when installing these bushes?
Yes, the OEM inner sleeve will need to be removed. This can be seen in the install video above. This needs to be done as the Gktech bushes are a direct replacement of both the inner sleeve and the bush.
Which way are these bushes suppose to be fitted?
When looking at the subframe in the car, they are to be fitted from the bottom (ground) to the top (chassis). If they were to be fitted the other way around the subframe would possibly fall out.
