In Reply to: Just curious about bushings.. posted by Kendall- on January 28, 2000 at 18:47:20:

: How many hours of labor did it take to replace, and how expensive is it at a reputable mechanic?? mine probably needs replacing soon...

: : Okay, I had the bushings replace and they were in pretty bad shape. Before having them replaced, I used to hear this clunking noise while going over rail road tracks. I thought this might have been all related to the t-arm bushings. Now that they have been replaced, the ride quality is awesome - feels like new.. no vibrations and it's a lot smoother on the road. However, I still hear the clunking going over the same railroad tracks AFTER I had the t-arm bushings replaced. Any Ideas?

: : Also, I'm planning on replacing the brake pads. My mechanic says I about 1.5 millimeters above specs on the rotors. Would this be enough clearance to just replace the pads until the next brake job (when I plan to replace the rotors)? Is replacing the pads an easy job? What parts/tools do I need to do the job?

: : P.S. I'm still fighting with this darn warm air problem.

: : Neepu '95 540i
: : 91K miles and tight again
: : Next up... Brakes
