Source for new rubber rear crossmember and mustache bar bushings

Postby J.T.L. » 25 Jun 2016 10:15

I'm restoring a stock, street car.

I'm looking for a source for new, rubber, rear crossmember-to-body and mustache bar-to-body bushings. They are NLA from Nissan. I can only find urethane for sale. I'm not interested in welding anything, slotting or penultimate-ing on this car; the original Nissan design is quite enjoyable for me, I just need to bring it back to new. I'm not re-using any other 44 year old rubber on the car, so I don't want to start with major suspension components.

Thanks for any suggestions,
J.T.

Good luck. I haven't seen these parts for sale in forever. Might want to try a Canadian dealer as they can order from Japan. While you're at it, contact some of our Norwegian and Portugese members, as they also may have leads that the US simply doesn't know about.

If you don't end up finding any, you could drill through the poly parts to gain some compliance.

Whiteline makes poly bushing for the rear crossmember and mustache bar that puts it in correct position to original. Only issue with these parts is if your willing to use them or not and they won't rattle your teeth at all if going stock street car.

Good Luck!!

Mustache bar has two sizes of bushing over the years of 510s, I believe Whiteline offers one, but not the other.

Would also wonder how much NVH you'd add with poly crossmember bushings versus the Savage Washer mod some of us run, which compresses the stock rubber into immobility.

I have a set of new, never opened poly bushings for the cross member if you are interested.

Good point! but really what difference are you really going to notice when both setups are solid? The two different mustache bushings for different year 510s can be an issue but I believe the ones Whiteline sells are for the later years. I have a set in my `69 that are a perfect fit.

From Whiteline or the ones from Top-End Performance?
