Rear subframe refurb-bush choice

Hi folks, As there’s a bit of corrosion on my rear subframe and control arms etc I am removing all parts for blasting and powder coating.
Has anyone here removed their original bushes and refitted?
If not is it better to stay with new oem or take the opportunity to upgrade to performance items?
Thanks in advance

AFAIK there is no option to buy replacement bushes for the subframes.

I’ve enquired, and as as dude states there’s no std replacement at the minute. They said there may be a nismo option but never heard anymore so I would’nt bank on those being available.

Only other option is get a company like vibra technics to replicate originals, with that option you would get a choice of material hardness.

I do have a spare subframe with excellent bushes if anyone is interested in replicating them.

One thing I did notice on a early subframe bush was the aluminium part of the bush was elongated, don’t know what caused that or if it was there from the factory.

We have a new sponsor who sell's uprated subframes if there any interest there?

Lovely subframes which I suspect there more targeted at track cars as they look to be solid mounted.
