Thanks Sbaert, I tried the pp once, but it was confusing and seemed to me to be no longer a thing? Ill look into it again.

Looks like I've sourced the diff bushing tool, just need subframe one now. It's great to have such good friends!

Does anyone know if in fact the Chrysler crossfire uses either 124 or 129 subframe?

Neither, the Crossfire shares DNA with the R170 SLK.

Ok, so crossfire uses 2 of same mounts as 124. ( Prob r170 too)Two that are similar.
Fingers crossed, I picked up the Miller 9110. The large stirrup piece fits both front and rear subframe flages (around the mounts). It looks like the smaller circle blocks fit both front (small mount) and rear (bigger one). So it will pull out old ones no prob. Installing...dunno. but if it saves hacksawing, air drilling or tennis elbow it's worth it.
I'll keep ya posted on success or failure. Much cheaper than $500 MB set or $300 clone.
