1982-1987 Turbo Regal -
AFTERMARKET LOWER BODY BUSHINGS/CUSHIONS (4) KIT
Based on our experience, for some reason most 1982-1987 Regals, including the Turbo Regal models, did NOT receive the #3, #4 and #7 lower body bushings/cushions! That means, in some cases, you could be missing almost half the total number of the lower body bushings/cushions that secure the body to the frame.
NOTE - GM refers to these as cushions, but most car owners know them as bushings.
The illustration above shows the location of the body mounts, and highlights positions #3, #4 and #7.
In the parts book, it simply shows a flat metal washer instead of the body bushing/cushion. This is something you can easily check for yourself. Simply locate the #3 and #4 positions on both sides of the car and you will be able to feel the metal washer and about a 3/4″ gap between the metal washer and the top frame rail on your Turbo Buick.
Then check for the #7 position, look for the last body bushing near the back bumper. Remember, this is the lower body bushing, between the upper frame rail and the body bolt. Our experience has shown that not all of the 1982-1987 Regals are missing the #7 bushing/cushion.
By installing these 3/4″ thick missing lower body bushings, you are now tightening up your car, which can eliminate squeaks, rattles, and even improve your 60 foot times, since you are eliminating body flex.
If you have installed our front and rear brace kits (Part #6756, #6564, #1586) along with these bushings/cushions, it will greatly improve the suspension and your car should ride like new.
We offer two bushing kits…
PART #7306 - The 4-piece lower body bushings for those cars that need the #3 and #4 bushings for both sides.
PART #7307 - The 6-piece lower body bushings kit is for those also missing #7 bushings.
These bushings are aftermarket parts with the metal washer included, and new correct grade 8 bolts as shown. Each kit comes with easy-to-follow directions and takes less than 30 minutes to install. You don’t even have to jack up the car to install them.
This is one project you shouldn’t put off, because the longer you wait, the tougher it may be to remove the original bushings/cushions without having the bolts break or spin freely due to rust or corrosion.
Each kit comes with easy-to-follow directions and takes less than 30 minutes to install. You don’t even have to jack up the car to install them.
Replacing these bushings/cushions are important upgrades to any 1982-1987 Turbo Regal!
