So after 2 hours of frustration trying to install the cobb bushings I gave up and will hopefully finish it tomorrow.
For starters, removing the cross member and heat shield were not bad... but I guess when I ordered my front bushing off Amazon... they sent me the damn 6 speed bushing.. I even went back to look at part numbers and I am supposed to have the 5mt front bushing... but NO it says 6 speed and has the metal rod that goes through.. so after fighting the play there (5 mt must be a larger diameter because the 6 speed bushings had a bunch of slop without the metal rod and the metal rod does not fit over the bolt... wow what a PITA to have everything disassembled and find out you have the wrong part.
So then I put the OEM one back in... whatever.Went on the the rearbushing... what a horrible design. Cobb really DID NOT get this one right. The poly bushing is not the correct size otherwise both bolts would start thread but they dont!
I started the passenger side one first then try and try and try to make the other side thread on... NO luck... just a bunch of cursing and throwing my flashlight because now I cant see jack underneath the car.
I will cool down in about an hour and 5 beers later... what a PITA... you would think that Cobb could have designed a better size bushing or at least not have the metal rods installed that go around the bolts that make it harder to line the bolt up...
