I'm pretty sure my suspension bushes are shot at the rear and at the front of my D40.
You can hear me squeaking and creaking up the driveway.
So I've been online and I have sourced a complete kitset of bushes on Ebay for front and rear.
But there are loads upper and lower trailing arm sets too complete with bushes.
Should I just buy the trailing arms complete with bushes? Or keep the original trailing arms and just replace the bushes at the front?
Any advice would be helpful guys
 
bushes are cheap. trailing arms with bushes expensive for no added benefit.
one thing to watch, if you do any offroading then avoid the hard bushes and get either rubber or the soft silicone ones.
 
I did my R51 Pathfinder recently, big job. Once arms are removed, removing & then reinstalling bush's is time consuming. Also did the final drive (Nissan talk for rear diff) bush's as well which entailed removing the diff.
Side story on diff removal, diff input shaft & output shafts require new bolts on reassembly (torq. to yield I suspect). Output shaft bolts come in a bag of 5, there are 6 per side!!!!!! Yep gotta buy 3 bags.

One more thing, my D40 has started to make a rumbling sound at about 90kmh and it feels like the truck is vibrating, could this be because the bushes are knackered?
