    Im looking for a polybush for my 328i coupe. The bush is the one that mounts the diff to the sub frame. Ive got a welded diff an polybushed subframe waitin to go on but only have the standard bmw bush for the diff.

    Not so keen on getting it all on the car for the standard bush to take a proper beating. So i suppose im askin should the standard bush cope? And if not where can i get a poly bush special.

    Thanks

    I don't think anyone has really done that yet. There has been occasional cases of the bolt snapping, and it's a real PITA to get out.

    If you want a polybush for it, you'll probably need the measurements and pass it over to a polybush maker, and hopefully they'll have something off the shelf.

    if you aren't worried about harshness solid mount the diff???
    any engineering shop should be able to make up a suitable insert.
    though using a std bush shouldnt really hurt
