    Bushing in the rear end

    Has anyone replaced the bushing in the rear end, when you shift from reverse to drive the clunk in the rear end seems to be comming from a missing bushing, was wondering how big of a job this is.

    What makes you think that the noise might be coming from a missing bushing? Which bushing are you talking about?

    Doesn't HIPAA prevent us from knowing about his health care problems?

    I just had new tires put on at sears and asked them to look into it, while it was on the lift they showed me, there is a long bolt on the passenger side where this bushing should be. Klunk only happens from reverse to drive and doesnt happen all the time.

    Many times, the manufact does not sell just the bushing; they want to sell the arm + bushing.

    Good luck.

    If you're not comfortable or knowledgable enough to fix it yourself your next best bet is the dealer or a qualified independent repair shop. You can find the parts you need at www.gmpartsdirect.com.

    Re: Bushing in the rear end

    These are worthless responses I recieved when I asked:

    What makes you think that the noise might be coming from a missing bushing? Which bushing are you talking about?
    Doesn't HIPAA prevent us from knowing about his health care problems?
    The dealer will take care of it for you.

    However I had these bushings replaced in both of my STS's it ran me under $300.00 for parts and labor for each, the dealer wanted over $800.00, so if you have stupid money to spend go to the dealer. It isnt a hard job but the rear end does need to be lowered to have it installed.
    Since then no noise

    Did you manage to get the part # or see if its on the invoice? I gave them what i thought was the correct number and it was a bolt, he said the bushing isn't replaceable have to do the whole diff carrier which I don't believe at all.

    My dealer replaced that bearing for me under the powertrain warranty - I'm past the bumper-to-bumper coverage. I don't remember if he was doing a "goodwill" repair or if this should be covered but check with your dealers.
