HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Replacement Rubber Trailing Arm Bushings

Post  v8carreragts on Tue Apr 27, 2010 6:59 pm

I just got replacement rubber trailing arm bushings so now you're not stuck with delrin or urethane bushings. They are made by Neatrix and I bought them at Paragon Products. (there is a note on the listing about adapting to the 944) They are made for the 911 which uses 4 identical bushings. You need to cut off 1/2" from two to use for the inner. So If you just want a street car that doesn't squeak, now there is an option. They were only $58.50 for the set of 4.

I marked two then cut them with a hacksaw. It only took a few minutes then they slide right on.

I heard that the delrin ones need a lot of work fitting then.

You can just push the rubber ones on. It might take some rubber lube to get them into the cavities on the torsion housing. I just tried quickly to push the spring plate on by hand. if I need anything i will probably just use a little o-ring lube.

James (robotmachines) did the delrin I believe (on second thought, maybe it was urethane) and had to install zerks fittings to grease them periodically; cause they squeeked and squaked alot..... like an old ghetto sled. Laughing Laughing Fits his cars poop color anyway I say. Laughing

You know if you spray liquid silicone on rubber parts they will last forever, even in direct U.V. That is a nice find for sure. I've heard that the P.U. bushings for the trosion tubes squeel like a pig.

Appreciate the post, those are the only bushings I haven't replaced, glad to hear there is reasonably priced replacement available.

what about "poly-graphite" do you think the graphite might help with the squeaking problem. If they actually contain graphite it should help. Such as these: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I've read that all of the urethane based bushings squeak, even the poly graphite. I also read that they crack when used on a track car. Also that the delrin bushings wear out relatively quickly.

Delrin

Post  948 on Thu Apr 29, 2010 11:19 am

The Delrin units are far better than the poly versions. If fit correctly they will last years and years. Delrin doesn't squeak and won't cold flow like poly...
On my install; the one side went in perfectly the other side required machining to fit.

If the rubber units had been around when I replaced mine I would have used them as my car sees mostly street use.....

oy, I knew they might squeek and am prepared to do a little machining; but cracking????? not good, I bought a set from Lindsey Racing. Should I even bother installing? I hope to do a good amount of autocross, maybe not a whole lot of track days at first.

Dang, are those for early 944s only? Seems like it, I hope not!

Are you talking about these?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

or the replacement rubber ones? If you look in the drop down menu there are multiple year options for each bushing. I called Lindsey racing and they said they should fit the 86 turbo, haven't broken any seals yet though and they're pretty good about returns if they are a bad choice.
