after work at the dealership where i sell cars, i put my car on the lift, to replace the trunnion spacers with the 5 mm poly spacers i made.got a fashlight and took a look at the rear bushings, wow, they are shot, good news i guess, they should not be hard to remove...i have my new "devcon " flexane 94 poly kit. my plan is to ( i have done this before on my last alfa spider) burn out the old bushings, remove the centre sleave, ( rear track arms)lay the rear track arms on a table, where the bushings once stood, use clay to seal the bottom of the arms( bushing holes) centre the pivot sleave, the mix the devcon 94 ,pour, and wait 7 days to cure.also doing the same to the front lower a-arm bushings ,get the mighty:D propane torch , burn the rest of the rubber that is left in those bushings, clay mold agian, centre the sleave , pour the poly, yes i know the poly is 90 durometer hardnes, only a little harder the the rubber bushings, but the fesopnd quiker to de-form, and snap back to org. setting quicker.then centre sleaves well be well anti-sezed to prevent rust, so they can rotate on ther axes better,cost of all the poly bushing? you may ask.....all the bushings.... the kit cost me $30.99. one kit can do all the track arm/ front lower a-arm,trunnion to diff. bushings.

How can you make sure that the sleeves are centered before you pour the mixture? And where do you get kits like that?
