Can do mate no worries... yours are from that date range around 3-4 years ago?

Did you want to have them recast its less that half the price of them new?

Thanks Dan, but I'll be replacing them with Superpro items.
Was just more wondering if you wanted the old ones back to see if you can work out why one failed.

Not 100% but i think i bought them around 3 years ago. They've only done 10000ish kms though.

No problem.

Yes please mate if you PM me your bank details I will transfer you the cost of an express post bag so you are not out of pocket. In the last 3 years ive only had two pairs come back, one was a set that was laying about unused that had discoloured the compound and gone brittle (incorrect mixture ratio) the other set tore out but the rear bush had failed catastrophically as well so it was a bit chicken or the egg. The other 70 or so pairs in that time are all still going so far as I know so will be interesting to see whats happened to your set.

Daniel

you must be talking about a set of mine, but your description does not fit.
my right hand side one has failed again. left is fine, so it must be the heat from the exhaust causing the resin to go brittle and shatter.
nothing to send back except the inner and outer aluminium.

Sorry for butting in, but the right hand bush should have a heat shield covering it, and secured properly against the cradle body so heat cannot reach the bush.

Was this heat shield refitted properly with fasteners after bush replacement?

Who knows. I've never seen one there, but it does make sense. My local dealer has only ever been the ones to work on it.
Do you have any pics or diagram to show one in place? I can check it out.

This is mine, ready for the cradle assy to be reinstalled in the car after fitting Dans bushes. It covers the bush completely.



The top fastener is an original rivet, the other two rivets were drilled out to allow the heat shield to be turned around to gain access to the bush for replacement. Replaced by bolts (can be seen in pic) which either screw into the hole in the sub assembly nicely with washers, or with a nut in the case of the innermost one.

The left hand bush can also be seen in the photo, no heat shield over that one (located immediately behind the fuel tank).

I had the set that were unused for a while and were discoloured and soft/ brittle.

When I put the supercharger on, I knew I would have to replace the diff bushes eventually so I bought a set of Dan's bushes. However, I also wanted to fit a Wavetrac differential and a set of 3.73 diff gears so the bushes lay around for a while so I could fit everything all at once while the cradle was out.

When I checked the bushes before install, I noticed they were discoloured and soft and flaky. I sent Dan an email with photos of the bushes and he promptly sent me a replacement set no questions asked. These are the ones in my car now and I have had no problems with them since.

Please don't take me the wrong a way folks, I have no issue with Dan or his service. He replaced my last set without question. Although I have had the same thing happen again a few years and only about 5000k later, (car is rarely driven).
Having said that though, it looks like my car is missing a heat shield, but I can say I don't recall having ever seen one there since the car was new.

No question heat is definitely an issue.

The set in my old twin turbo were in there from early 2010 until Gaz bought the car earlier this year and just prior to selling him the car I removed them to check them out after all the pain they have been through as well as extemes of heat etc and fit a new pair (as the planed hatched by Gaz was to step into the FG down the track but initially the car was going to traverse the Tasman to serve as a dedicated streeter until such time as it stepped up)... the original ones were still fine I have them sitting at home to show people that are interested.

Because I cannot control what people do (their mechanics removing the heatshield when fitting bushes and/or for exhausts that tend to foul on shields etc) I have several months back made a move to a compound that takes heat better (prompted by the full twin exhaust on PSI MIAMI that runs over the passenger side as well as the driver side which inherently has no shields) its very early days and while they are kicking goals now im not sending large quantities out until we can establish some longer term results.

Jason (GTPilot) your set was prior to the three years ago I was referring to, yours failed in May or June of 2013, as you know time flies.... if you are keen to run a set of this trial compound without the heatshield in place (be it a factory omission or its been removed by someone is not a concern to me) just let me know and I will send you a pair this week.

Regards,

Daniel

Hello Steve.

We do not supply driveshaft parts, thats something best left to the specialists with the tooling to press joints/bearings and balance shafts.

Of the three Diff bushes, I only supply the front two as eBay has made it nonviable for me to buy and sell the rear one (you can buy it the same price I can)

The forum price on the front pair of bushes is $275 including GST and express post included.

If you would like to go ahead simply email me at: bluestreakperformance@outlook.com and we can get the details swapped over for shipping address, invoice and bank details

Kind regards,

Daniel
