Hi guys, got a nasty creek on the SPI, think ive narrowed it down to the towerbolt subframe mount. On dry steering or any steering to be fair, i get a creek from high up passenger footwell.
IF i stick my finger through the grometered hole onto the rack i feel no movement or vibration, u bolts tight as rack isnt moving, lower subframe to toeboard tight, knuckle joint greasy, quite a bit of rubber protruding from between bulkhead and subframe suspension mount, if you put your finger on the towerbolt / rubber spacer / suspension mount can feel the creek.
So going to look at changing the towerbolt subframe mount.
So.... million dollar question. 1275 SPI Cooper, what subframe mounts do i go for, rubber, alloy or poly. Car is rarely driven.
Also, am i right in saying they can be changed with everything in ( engine brake servo etc) by just taking the toeboard mounts off and releasing the tower bolts and jacking the car up via the floor pan with a good plank across it, hopefully there should be enough slack to let the subframe drop just to awkwardly get the new mounts in .
