Testing quiet bushes
Hi guys bought a 96 GTV for buttons a while back, it has a monster service history that details bushes being done a long time ago but I'm worried about them going again and taking out the rear subframe.
The car doesn't knock or bump but when I had the rear wheels off for a refurb today I lifted the disc/hub by hand and got a bit of a squeek which sounded like it came from the shock.
Got me thinking, how can I test the bushes? The front drop link bushes/ wishbone bushes look a bit perished and cracked but aren't knocking/squeeking and the car handles 100%
What should i look for on the rear? Would rather replace the set of bushes with powerflex than the whole rear subframe but at the same time I on't want to spent a fortune on a very cheap car which I won't be keeping for very long
