    Ok Clunk Report:

    Seems to be much better. No noise or something's loose / thumping feeling under your foot thing. I would recommend it. I got mine through GM Parts Direct. Service was good but I think there shipping costs is a little crazy. Shiping cost almost as much as the parts.

    Hope this helps.

    Mike

    P/N 25752683 - Part is known as an Insulator at GM Parts Direct - Price $7.74 ea..... but they will get you on shipping. Total order for 2 insulators was $28.43, oh well, but worth it.

    Yea with big bells on this year, taking 2 cars, 91 Z-28 and the kid is coming in the V, we are showing the V as well. So look for a '05 Red Line ( THE Fastest Color, lol) and a burgundy / silver stripes 91 Z in the Camaro crowd.

    Glad it's fixed!

    Maybe it's me, but I think the front sway bushings in the V are a big weak point. I've replaced bushings many times and it always fixes it... for like a month, then it's back to the front clunk. I even put bushings (Energy Susp?) on that are 1mm smaller than my Hotchkiss and same story. Don't know what to do for a car driven hard. What do the race guys think?

    Well, I silicone sprayed them till they were dripping so hopefully that will buy me some time. But if there are stiffer/more durable bushings available, I'd buy em.

    No I don't thing so but you can check Energy Suspension. I believe they might have a universal bushing you can get but I think it would take some chop-cut-rebuild to make it work in our application.
