Subframe Mounts for a Second Gen Camaro

does anyone know what the best choice for subframe bushing/mounts is? I want something that I do not need to change for a while, so I do not really want to look at rubber unless it is a lot cheaper. I know solid aluminum bushings are sold in summit for 40$ and I was wondering if any companies sell polyeurethane or polygraphite bushings. I fear the aluminums may hurt ride too much.

Also, what is the easiest way to put these in? I will have the drive train removed from the car within the next month so I plan to do it then. I was thinking, remove the bolts on one side at a time and lift that side of the body off the subframe and reinstall the new ones. is there an easier way?

Thanks in advance guys,

Ben

JEGS and Summit carry Energy Suspension parts, JEGS' price is around $40.

Also, Prothane has a list of dealers on their site.

Many of the resto places probably have them as well.

i have always figured it was best to remove the whole frame to change the mounts. i dont like having to twist / force the frame to move any deflection in the mounting points will adversely effect the drive on the car. i think its best to just support the tub carefully and remove the rad saddle bolts and frame bolts, you can also paint / por the frame while your at it
