    DA Trailing Arm Bushing!

    I went to get my trailing arm bushing done today & the bushing everybody gives me doesn't fit it goes through th trailing arm! Has anybody else ever have this problem? If I get 1 from the dealer will it fit? I have a 90 GS is there a difference with the bushings?

    you might have a DC bushing. try burning the rubber out of the metal sleeve from your original bushing and pressing your new one into that, then press that into the trailingarm.

      Does anybody have a pic of a DA & a DC trailing arm bushing next to each other?

        Unless it was made specifically for the DA it won't fit. EF,EG,EK,DC are all different from the DA. If they are energy suspension poly bushings you were supposed to leave the outer metal shell of the old bushing and put the bushings inside them. The DA bushings have a bigger outside diamater.

          I know that's what I was trying to explain to the guy at the parts store but he didn't understand plus the 1 that came up in the computer at all the stores were the same size. So I am going to the acura dealer tomorrow. Will this 1 fit perfectly? Bcuz I don't want to leave the car at the shop again.

            The part number for the DA trailing arm bushing is 52385-SK7-N02, get it from the dealer, they'll have it.

                          Yeah that's for the both of them.
                          I don't need them, plus, there still in the bags.

                          Plus, shipping.

                          PM me if you want them.
                          I'll send them to you if you'd like okay?
                          Peace....

                            I forgot one thing,
                            I did not go to the front counter area for the service.
                            I found myself around the machine shop and asked the guy to hook me up, and he did. He was cool and after finishing, I asked him about the price. He said that, the going rate was around $38 - $50. That is what the shop usually charged it's customers. It only took about 15 minutes to remove and replace, if you are thinking about it? Just ask around your area and find out what they charge, or maybe even a High School can help you out? I went and had my DA Trailing Arm Bushings removed and replaced, my total charge was $20 for both, so each side would be $10. .

                              You took the arm off the car and have them pressed out at a machine shop or is there a tool that the machine shop used to press it out while the arm is on the car? Just wondering... thanks

                                I had to take mine off and have them pressed in, I have the trailing arm bushing tool for civics and DC tegs. Don't think it works on ours.... of course. Used it on my 6th gen civic and an 4th gen hatch so far.

                                  The machine shop I was at had a full size machine press. It was about 8' tall, 4' wide, and 5' long. It was a industrial full size press, I can ask them to take a picture of it - if you want me to?

                                  I removed the complete arm, brake stuff, cable lines, I left the drums on also.
                                  Plus, I did leave the wheels off there was no need in carrying extra weight I thought.

                                    LOL it's all good... no need to take pics of the press.. thanks for the offer though I just thought the machine shop had a tool that they can take off the bushings while the arm was on the car.

                                    I just hate having to deal with all the rusty seized bolts on the suspension. Guess I'll tackle the bushings this weekend.. it's waaay overdue.

                                      Bringing this back from the dead. So I ordered the dorman trailing arm bushings with the same exact part number and it fell right through the arm. The dorman was supposed to be the oem replacement....Am I supposed to leave the outer ring on or does the oem part fit right in?

                                        I replaced mine with aftermarket bushings. They were made by Spicer. At first they fell right through but then i burned out the rubber and left the factory outer ring and they fit perfect! But while pressing them in you can have them slightly crooked which will cause them to go bad again. I'v checked Alldata and they've had a factory recall on this problem. I went ahead and changed mine to energy suspension afterwards and i would suggest it to anyone. They worked great and needed no pressing!!

                                          So I have been reading all the archives and like 20 threads and it seems that 50% of the people are oem or bust and 50% are ES or bust haha. My car is lowered but is still going to be a daily, what do you guys think I should go with? The ES bushings are cheap but I do work at Honda and could get the oem for an ok price (still way more then the ES..)

                                            That was a part number for Civics and 94-01 Integras.

                                            If you guys would have actually bought brand new OEM bushings you wouldn't have to deal with parts that don't fit. I know for a fact a Honda bushing with the right part number wouldn't have done that....And also I would definitely not suggest polyurethane bushings in the trailing arms to anybody. They don't allow the proper lateral (side-to-side) movement that the suspension was designed to have.

                                            It's been pretty well established NOT to go with poly bushings in the trailing arms, they can go everywhere else, just not the TAs. Look above for reasoning

                                              The own number I got from this thread was the same one I ordered. Not sure if that was an old stock or what. It was dorman which is an oem replacement.

                                                LOL. Dorman is an OE equivalent which is NOT an OEM part. There's definitely a difference, as you just unfortunately found out. If it were the right part number, then it should fit right? That's the EXACT reason why I buy parts from Honda instead of cheaper store brand replacements. Matty and Leo had no problems installing the Honda part, with the right number...http://forums.g2ic.com/showthread.ph...lacement/page2
