Sun Gear Bushing

Part No. 96009-01

Front Sun Gear Shell, 1988-1992, Upgraded

Complaint:

  • Loss of lube oil
  • Lower sun gear shell bushings wear prematurely

Cause:

OE and aftermarket bushings are too narrow for application.


Correction:

This wider bushing gives more support and reduces shaft-to-bushing clearance.

  • Width: 0.578"
  • Housing Bore: 1.582"
  • Shaft Dia.: 1.455"
  • Assembled Height: 0.578"
  • Material: Bimetal
  • Bearing Style: Precision

In vehicles with AXOD & E ('88-'92) transmissions it is common for the lower sun gear bushing to wear. The sun gear holds two bushings, an upper and lower bushing. The upgraded Sonnax bushing 96009-01 replaces the lower and upper sun gear bushings.

  • The Sonnax bushing is 50% wider for better support.
  • Bushing has less bushing-to-shaft clearance than other available bushings.
NOTE:

Beginning in 1989 the upper bushing was used only to control oil flow, and is not used to support the sun gear.
