Thread: Neatrix spring plate bushings glue?

  1. #1

    Has anybody used the softer neatrix springplate bushings?

    Just recieved my new neatrix bushings from Weltmiester and included was a tube of super glue. Instructions say nothing about using it. So, has any one super glued their bushings to the spring plate? Does it work? Is it preferred?
    Thanks Wolfgang

    I'm dying out here fellas, isn't anybody using the softer neatrix springplate bushings? I replaced my originals a year before with the plastic bushings, greased the crap out of them, but now I'm getting alot of creaking going on back there, although, only in cold weather. I figure if you glue the new neatrix bushings to the spring plate then you would have the factory design. But to use super glue? How about polyurethane adhesive? Has anybody done this? Has anybody used neatrix bushings? Thanks Wolfgang

    Wolf, I've been hoping for an answer as well, since I'm contemplating a bushings change. Have you tried asking the question on the pelican parts 911 BB? Somebody there may know...

    I replaced the rear torsion bushings in Tracey's 75 US Carrera with the soft neatrix bushings.
    I did not glue them to the spring plate, in fact I dont recall there being any glue in the kit? it was late 2001.
    The ' 75 rear suspension is completely noise free, unlike the hard plastic bushes in my '72, or the same noisy hard bushes in my '77.

    For anything other than a dedicated event car, track or AutoX, I would not hesitate to use the soft bushings again.

    The Neatrix are supposed to be glued to the spring plate only, not the cover plate or torsion tube.
