    Just changed out the rear subframe on my sons 2001 Forester.

    Seems the bushings are fubar...

    anyone who works for Subaru can you help me out with what I need??

    I am planning on picking up a set of lock bolts, but Im trying to figure out what I need for the other 4 bolts as far as bushings and how it all mounts exactly...

    Seemed that they tightened down but the bushings are loose in there and when we drove it the car would randomly feel like the rear was sliding side to side... so I assume those bushings/bolts arent right etc...

    any diagrams or part numbers would be awesome.. spent a while searching and everytime I think I have found a poly kit etc its for later cars... smf...


    thanks for any help..

    Oh, Hi! I don't work at Subaru anymore, but I do still have a few tricks.

    www.Partsouq.com and parts.subaru.com both have VIN-specific complete parts diagrams. The diagrams are sorted and labeled differently, so I use them both, frequently simultaneously.

    I doubt that you'll find a "kit" of any sort. You'll probably have to make a parts list and order them up. I've been shopping at the Toyota sister of www.subarupartsdeal.com a lot lately, and been very happy. The discount doesn't offset shipping on small orders, but if you get over $50-80 or so, it adds up.


    Also, FYI, he doesn't post on here anymore, but Fuji works in parts at Morrie's Minnetonka.

    When i did the rear bushings on my outback sport I used parts.subaru.com to gather parts numbers and found most of them either individually or as groups on ebay (OEM Subaru branded).
