Maximum Motorsports Torque Arm Bushing issue? SOLVED
I recently noticed a strong thump/thunk in the seat of my pants when I shift gears, even under moderate accels. Happens for all gears and when I goose the throttle in gear. I don't really feel a thump on downshifts (engine braking torque). I put the car in the air and checked all the rear suspension bolt torques, and any other red flags. Then had someone run through the gears while I watched underneath. Best I can tell, the torque arm front bushing has slop, and is causing it to slap upward when new gear gets torque. I can move the arm near the front bushing and feel a light clunk with moderate force by hand.
Anyone else have this issue? Are replacement bushings available (didn't see them on MM website)? Other solutions?
edit: I just realized that is the one bolt I have not checked torque on, maybe the bushing bolt needs to be retorqued?
