99 v70xc rear subframe

Post by Oitsujosh » Fri May 15, 2020 7:51 am

Good morning, so my car a couple weeks ago decided to start spewing gas from the top of the tank somewhere. So I decided to drop the whole rear end. Honestly not as bad as I expected. Here are some pics of the progress. The front two bolts snapped as expected. Now seeing the the condition of everything, I'm thinking my plan it to do the lines to get her running. Then see about getting another sub frame to rebuild to install later. I'll post updates as I go. 😁

Don't see any of the pictures unfortunately, but it may help to look for my 00 'R' rear sub-frame re-build. Be warned that several of the sub-frame bushes are NLA for AWD models. I did try to get several poly bush manufacturers to consider making some and offered a sub-frame and old bushes to help, but none wanted to do it.

Also many of the rubber hoses and fuel lines are also MLA as well as things like the fuel filter mounts and fittings. If you get really stuck I may have some good used, rebuilt or new parts, but they are not easily accessible currently as they are in storage until I can get my new garage built.
