Why Does My Monza Squeak Squeak Squeak? RR Torque Arm Bushing Replace...
Posted by: UGLYTRUK ()

My 1965 Monza vert has had a nasty squeak since I bot it 5 years-3,000 miles ago. Long story short, the forward bushing slipped out of the shell. This is what things looked like today at my shop. I had two aftermarket bushings, pretty badly cracked considering they were always indoors. Two other NOS GM bushings, I installed one of those. Note the wear on the rocker end bracket.

Did the bushing stop the squeak? If not spray some lube on anything that moves..

I am betting the torque arm went sideways and steel was rubbing steel at the bracket. I have seen this one before. Can make an ugly squeak.

The rubber bushing slid out of the shell, the arm moved inwards up against its bracket, wearing one heck of a 250d groove, actually 2 grooves! Matt has the images...

And the ujoints were at the end of their usefull life, luckily I had a rust-free and painted shaft w 2 new joints. Thank goodness for piles of junk lol...

I started re-assembly, but my probation officers stopped by to check in...

In the top picture it looks like the bushing isn't seated all the way?

Murphy, the bushing shell has stopper nubs, I clamped 'er down to those nubs. I'll finish reassembly today...

Since I had new bushings back out on me a couple years ago, now I spot weld them in. Hate doing things twice!
