Bushwhacked! Keys to Avoiding Preventable Bushing Problems
Caution: Use of an arbor press is required for correct installation. Do not use a hydraulic press or a bushing driver/hammer combination to install, as doing so may distort the bushing and cause fitment issues.
OE bushings in Chrysler 845RE and listed ZF 8-speed units have a tendency to wear out prematurely due to sub-optimal material composition. This wear can lead to bushing failure, harsh shifts, burnt clutches and gear ratio or solenoid codes. Sonnax improved bushing kit 35030-01K restores worry-free operation.
