I bought some trailing arm bushes awhile back for my EJ9. Apparently its the same part number for EK9's. I'll check for you now.Tread revival.
I'm trying to find genuine oem rear trailing arm bushes for a '98 ek9.
I'm very confused with the correct part number as im aware it's 52385-SR3-000.
However on tegiwa it's stating 52385-ST3-G0,
Hendy is 52385-ST3-G01 and other companies are giving me a bunch of different numbers.
Can anyone advise me on where to buy from and that i will receive the correct parts.
Thanks in advance
I got mine from a dealership. Since the guy working there was a car enthusiast, he offered 15% off.Thanks for you're reply im aware of the correct part number but every online company including tegiwa jp4mance hendy are all stating a different number. My concern is they will send me the wrong parts. I have no idea where to correctly buy from.
Thanks mate will look into cox and do more research.I bought my OEM DC2 ones from Cox motorparts (OEM Honda), for a DC2 Type-R. I know the fitment is the same 88-00, but your right there are different part number as the rubber form differs from car to car. The aerodeck for example is a fair bit more solid. I wanted mine to be the same part as the car left the factory with.
This is a good thread, Note part nos.
SPOONEDeg9FERIO said:Trailing arm bushes and why they failing pre-maturely on our lowered vehicles.. next time you get these fitted ask them to centre it for a lowered vehicle :thumbup:
Above: the mounting points of the bush is centered with the arm (stock height )
Above: facing downward to accomodate the vehicle being lowered.
so if you dont do this you could have a constant pre-load twist.
just something to remember idea
They are a fair bit stiffer than oem, I wouldn't say they where very bad for the handling tbh.I just got a set of hard race rtas. Are they much stiffer than oem. And if so are they really that badly rated
I'd be interested what you think of this tbh. Obviously you'll love the automatic toe in under braking that the oem bush gives, so I'm wondering how the car would behave under harsh braking.
