Problem with the rear subframe

498 Views 9 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Em86
I got new rear subframe bushings to my 500SEL. The problem is the movement of the subframe during the process and therefore I cant get the main bolt to the threads.

The car is on the jack´s and there are limited space under the car. Do i have to just force the subframe back or is there something else I should do?

Thanks for the tips!

It may very well be that the jacks are not keeping the body aligned properly therefore you can't get it to line up. Have you tried repositioning the jacks or stands, also how level is the ground you have them on.
