Powerflex Bushings Replacement for 997.1 C2S

Recommended Posts

I have recently purchased and installed a set of front and rear "POWERFLEX" bushings kit for my 997.1 C2S and here is my comments. Regardless a few 996 type bushings were sent to me by mistake which my mechanic was able to solve with a bit of modification work done, the outcome seems okay so far with the ride feels quite a bit firmer than standard (of course lost a bit of comfort but can live with it). The major issue that attracted me was their kind of life time guarantee as the standard bushings on some areas doesn't seem to last very long.

Anyway, I have noticed at the same time that from there every time when I drive slow on bumppy roads, the front end do have a slight rubbing noise which sound like rubber rubbing with rubber. May I ask if anyone who installed this onto their cars has similar issues?

      If you notice your car is squeaking a lot at front, not smooth over bumps, has noises coming out of front, chances are your shock mount bushings are damaged and need replacement.
      If you need to do this, I hope you can use this tutorial to get it all fixed.  Hope it helps.  Feel free to give feedback afterwards.  Thank you.
       
      Pics labeled *-DRV are for driver side shock...otherwise everything else is same on both sides.

      I was planning to replace the plugs.  I went to remove the mufflers.  They were very corroded - especially the two I do not have to remove.  I used penetrating oil (acetone + AFT).  They are much prettier, but they are still corroded.
       
      Here is a 1 min video of the bolts so you can see what I am facing:
       
      Questions:
      If I get started on removing them and it does not go well, what next?  Surely I don't have to replace the catalytic converters?  Are the bolts somehow replaceable?
      Do they look too far gone?

      Well, I have an engine that needs to be worked on. However it is on the floor and I need it to be on the engine stand. How do I go about strapping this thing down so I can move it ??

      I am almost there with the Brake job on my project. One problem though. How do I connect the hard brake line to the caliper? I have connected the soft brake hose line from the hard line coming from the master cylinder area. However the hard brake line (small curved piece with red cap) doesn't seem to line up to the connector on the caliper. Do I bend it and make it fit  or is there an actual part to order. Here are some pics. I tried to find good steel lines but have been having a hard time finding some blue ones.
