    Question Rear Cradle bushing difference 04/05 to 06/07 ?

    Hey guys, im trying to figure out a way to tighten up my rear cradles with a permanent solution and i would like to know the main difference between the years i was thinking either there is a way to modify the cradle bushings to accept BMR bushings or Specter bushings. Also would anyone recommend filling the bushings with polyurethane? Im open to suggestions and ideas.

    I have the fabricator that is doing the GP with me now for the 04/05 bushings, working on a fix for the 06/07's. Fingers crossed that he can come up with a solution similar to the 04/05's

    GM changed the mounts by filling in the gaps left by the early design. However, there is still room for improvement...

    i saw on the 5th gen camaro forums somebody filled in the extra space with a tube of self leveling two part seam sealer from 3M i think i might go this route along with getting trailing arm bushings and making my own toe rods. Im not trying to go crazy spending alot of money on a fix just trying to tighten things up a bit so its more fun to drive on the street.
