Message So, I had to swap the rear subframe on a Honda Accord Last night and it got me thinking. The frame bolts direct to the chassis. No bushings no nothing. Metal to metal. So I was thinking if an economy car that's ment for comfort is designed like so, then how come the z becomes a rattle can of vibrations if we use solid subframe bushings? Is it strictly due to the more aggressive spring Rd area and hocks?

Also wouldn't subframe spacers be pretty much the same or at least give the same effect, comfort wise, as solids? They're pretty much eliminating any cushion from the bushings and making it a metal to metal affair.

Let me know what's up guys.
