This is a common trick with the front mounts on the A33 Nissan Maximas as well as a few other front drivers. It cannot hurt...The new rear upper has arrived, pre-loaded with crappy bushings. I'll be looking to press those out and replace them with something much better if possible. I've got emails in to 4wd Hardware and Energy Suspension to see if they can help at all. Bushing dims are 2-5/8" tall, 1-7/8" diameter at the top, and a 1/2 bolt hole.
What do you guys think about filling the voids in this bushing with silicone or butyl rubber? Wouldn't that reduce the flexibility and therefore reduce the amount of wear that kill these things? Opinions? Don't forget...opinions are like boltholes.
