Re: 3M window weld for diff bushings?

I just did a temp fix on this yesterday. I injected polyurethane into the voids without removing the diff. Like I said, temp fix but, no thud this morning when shifting out of park. I'm gonna order the bushings and replace them asap, but for now it's better and it confirms that they were bad.

thanks for posting your mod, I was thinking of doing the same technique.

No prob. Your post the other day actually made me think of it. My "thud" has been getting worse. I figured this would be a stop-gap measure to hold me over until I can replace them. Also it confirms that they are indeed bad.

It was a bit of a pain to get to but I rigged up a little contraption with some clear rubber hose and a tip like you would use to fill a balloon. Slipped that over the nozzle of the poly and ty-wrapped it. Then I just stuck it in there and started pumping.

I know I'll be cursing myself when I get under there to change them and have to clean the mess, but sounds alot better now.

So what exactly did you put in the bushing?

Re: 3M window weld for diff bushings?

Im thinking about doing this to mine. I dont think they are bad yet but it might extend their useful life.

Re: 3M window weld for diff bushings?

How are these replacement bushings holding up? I have heard of some also failing prematurely. I'm trying to decide if it's worth the trouble.
