Thanks. Have replacement bolts so not worried about damaging that side of things. Still wondering about how to replace the bushes on the fixed length arms. Must be possible, in theory.

So the bushings don't exist anywhere that i looked. We were hoping the Bushings from the Lolipops on the other side would fit, but they are too small.

@Spitfire was looking into some Honda bushings that he DID get to fit. I'd get in touch with him, if you want to do new bushings.

I ended up finding a brand new set of arms in the UK, and they were literally the only ones I could find anywhere.

I already wrote about this. I repeat. I made a bushings from: HONDA CR-V; HONDA Civic; HONDA Integra
But since these bushings are not separate, one must look for polyurethane.





Arm numbers where these bushings are used:
52390-SH3-000 ; 52390-SH3-010 ; 52390-SH3-020 ; 52390-SR3-000 ; 52395-SH3-004 ; 52395-SH3-005 ; 52395-SK7-004 ; 52395-SR0-A01 ; 52400-SH3-000 ; 52400-SH3-010 ; 52400-SH3-020 ; 52400-SH3-030 ; 52400-SH3-A00 ; 52400-SJ4-000 ; 52400-SK7-010 ; 52400-SR3-000 ; 52400-SR3-A00 ; 53393-SK7-004 ;

Hi Evgeny 164,

great find, thank you.
Just to be clear, did you obtain original Honda bushes and convert them to poly or did you start with poly Honda bushes? Thanks.

Original Honda bushes - they are not on sale. There are only Chinese. For Japanese cars, only the whole arm (in our case) can be original. Therefore, I immediately used polyurethane.

I have bushings available as well for adjustable arms if needed.

The Honda bushing I found requires less or possibly no machining compared to Evgeny, but is not as robust. Itís for Honda Civic smaller lateral link. It can be pressed into the arm as is, but I think it is slightly larger in diameter and once pressed in will deform the holes in the original Alfa arm. Iím away and donít have all info handy. I recall one part number for an individual bushing that I cross referenced as Febest HARM10.

I bought a Dorman arm for the Honda. It looked like the attached pic. I pressed a bushing out of that, and pressed it partly into the Alfa arm. I need better pressing tools to continue and scrapped the project. Iím not overly excited about this option. Not exact fit and the bushing definitely allows more movement.
