Front mounts and bushings for my Sportline Front sway bar ordered from Phil.

Waiting for a call back from my salesman friend at the dealer on the rear sportline kit. Hopefully I can have that on order today as well.

Got the exhaust off, shocks disconnected, calipers off, sway bar unhooked, flex disc unbolted, and ABS sensor out.

How do I disconnect the parking brake?

I got all 4 of the main mount bolts to turn, I turned each a couple rotations, so I gather they are actually turning the whole bolt, I turned enough times that if the head was going to shear off, it would have gone.

Loosen the horizontal bolt at the back of the apparatus, so the cables are slack, then remove the bolt that holds the front cable to the bracket. You should then be able to slide the bracket back and remove the spring and cables. You also have to pull out the little clips that holds the cables to the brackets on the bottom of the car ... once those are out you can slide the cables out of them.
Hope that's right ... I'm at work and that's just off the top of my head ... Wear goggles, a lot of dirt and rust will likely fall on your face as you're pulling it out!

So only the rear (of rear) subframe bushings were made in Sportline spec? I just replaced my front of rear with stock Meyle's. Here's a pic of my old subframe bushings next to the new one, hopefully yours are not in as rough of shape!

How did you get the mounts out of the subframe?

I got the subframe out of the car in just under 2 hours, I was pretty excited.

Rust under the car isn't too bad, and no other others... yet.

The sedans and coupes have plastic sway bar links. The wagons have aluminum ones. The bushings where the links connect to the LCA are wider on the wagon links, but it is easy to make them the correct size with a hacksaw and/or grinder.

Well the front mounts wouldn't burn out, so now I just have a mess of a front bushing.

JohnM. has a great method but it requires using the weight of the car to press them out, and since I took the whole subframe out, thats not an option.

Cecily mentioned there is a tool to pull them, but I couldn't find it on the list.

Any help?

Thanks!

Doing the whole rear suspension in my 94 coupe, replacing just about everything. Are the subframe mounts the only thing different between standard and Sportline suspensions? (other than shocks, sway bar, and springs)

I used the harbor freight press and a little ingenuity to get the mounts out of Jay Bob's 124 subframe. getting them back in I used a turbo collector ring, and a chunk of flat steel with the same kit.
this one.
