Hi all
Car...89 wagon D/R 5 speed ea82 non turbo.
Now for the Q.
I need to replace the gas tank...so have to drop the diff from what
I understand.
I was looking at the bracket that holds the diff to the car...it looks like there is
a rubber bushing in it...is this true?
And if thats what it is...it looks to bad in very bad shape.
SOOOO...is it a rubber bushing? If so...does anyone know where
I can get a new one?? :-\
Thanks for any help with this.

It is a rubber bushing, but it's molded right into the hanger. I haven't personally seen one go bad except in situations where the hanger is bent, and the rubber stayed at a funny angle for a long time.

Only way I could see to replace it is to replace the whole hanger. Likely it's just fine tho. I wouldn't worry about it. You could fill in the holes in the rubber with urethane if you wanted.

Yes...thank you Miles

I see how it is now...kinda like the ones in the mustash bar.
This sure is turning into a messy job...lol
I should have checked that the contaner that I was draining the
gas into didn't leak better...kitty litter...garage floors best friend
