    Subframe bushings DIY?

    anyone think changing out the subframe bushings on a 2000 M Roadster can be done at a DIY? Please take into consideration that I can barely change my own oil

    Yup again. If I have the funds available, I might be willing to do it on mine at the same DIY.

    Arrow Subframe bushings R&R

    Lads,

    Suggest you register early for the March 14th DIY at Convenience Car Care, and ask Tony McMullan, our Special Tools Man, to reserve the first two uses of that Special Tool at that event. Since spring is right around the corner, there may be others who also might want to rent the tool.

    Just make sure that the new bushings are not all metal! We had magnificent problems with those before.

    Paul, you should have no trouble, especially with Tony McMullan and/or Jonathan guiding you. You'll actually be smiling with pleasure after it's done!

    Slainte,
