    Trailing arm bushing options

    So I am approaching being done with replacing all bushings with urethane, and it occurs to me that I have not seen any such options for the trailing arm-to-body bushings which are so soft and sloppy. Has anyone found a compatible bushing to fit (like the one pictured, which of course is far too small)?-7ae3f4b1-d761-439e-a11a-65babc0140dd-jpg

    #23 correct? in the drawing.

    I havent heard anyone replacing it. Theres a civic style arm that alot of companies make a bushing/sperical bearing for might be an option.

    EDIT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwREGo5iy5o this is the one im thinking maybe 6:35 min mark.

    Re: Trailing arm bushing options

    I found an autoparts warehouse supplier that has these trailing arm bushings listed. I'm sure they are no name brand but anything is better than stock at this point. They had a minimum order of 4 so I ordered 8 (4 sets) I will sell you guys the remaining sets when i get them, shipping was expensive and says 24 to 42 days so, dont hold your breath. I'll let you know when i have them and when i can test to make sure they fit. I am confident they will fit as they looked correct online, are listed for the correct car, and are listed by the honda oem part number. They will be about $40 including shipping for a set.

    Has anyone tried the windshield adhesive trick yet? I'm considering it.
