When body mount bushings begin to wear and break, the signs are obvious. The ride will be rougher, there may be grinding or squeaking noises from metal-on-metal contact, and the bushings themselves will look broken and even crumbled. If they’re there at all. Older vehicles that have seen hard use or that have been parked in less than ideal storage may require bushing replacement. Body bushings are relatively easy to remove and replace, though some gymnastics may be required to get to them.
