Refer to this thread for discussion of adding support to the OEM rear bushings without additional NVH of aftermarket puck-style kits.
The sleeves will help prolong the life of the rear OEM bushings, which tend to eventually split.
They are compatible with aftermarket puck-style diff bushing inserts, so you get double support.

Four pairs in stock now, I'll make more. :)

$15/pair shipped.

It took me 90 minutes to install them. You only have to lower your subframe, and not remove it. This is so the rear bolts can clear the spare tire well during removal/replacement.

Sleeves:

Fit on the OEM bolts:

Sleeve partially inserted showing fit inside OEM bushing:

Loosen (do not remove) the four blue bolts to lower the subframe. No need to fiddle with exhaust if you find the right combination of extensions and U-joint:

Sleeve fully inserted:

Mark the bolt and bushing prior to bolt removal to aid restoring original torque value (same for the blue bolts if you prefer):

Old thread I know... sorry.

You still making these? So the cradle has to be lowered to install these? Any way around it?

The two rear diff bushing bolts are just a bit too long such that they hit the spare tire well with the cradle bolted up.

You only have to lower the cradle and not fully remove any of the blue bolts.

But if you are installing centering sleeves or lockout, it's a good time to do these too.

Gotcha. Thanks. Wasn’t really wanting to lower the cradle again. Was hoping these would just quick. Out with the bolt and in with spacer and bolt. No such luck. Did these make a difference do you think?

Well they are still pretty quick. Because you still have to jack up the car and pull the two bolts. How much more trouble is it to loosen the four blue bolts and retighten them? Not that much.

They are preventive medicine to put off splitting the rubber bushing. I'm combining them with puck style inserts.
