Yep. I started a thread last year called" Ripped a Sub Frame bush...a POLY one!!! "


Some members brought to light the reason why...Ill fitting (all of them)Powerflex Yellow sub frame bushings.
It's an interesting thread with several good close up photos.

I tore a yellow Poweflex Subframe bushing with 435rwhp. It may have even happened while I was NA at only 300rwhp.
The bushing did NOT last very long.
