here's a pic as promised, albeit blurry. this is one side, but the other side is exactly at the same position.

look at those skinnies! terrible... seems like the bushing is in place by a small notch at the middle of the bushing.

update:

talked to eddie from mynismo and purchased the revised links from a 2006 350z. judging from the pictures and the actual product in my hands, they're both the skinnies. i just realized from the fatty that andycon posted, i doubt they're even for the g or z. i overlooked the fact the lower strut housing actually bolts onto this traverse link... but that picture above does not.

looks like i'll have to fabricate polyurethane discs to sandwich the link from slipping again.

the traverse links i've purchased are for a 2006 350z. i haven't checked the arms religiously on the 07 but i think the design is a tad different. i didn't want the dealer to think i am stealing the wheels off their lot.

If you didn't have the warranty you could have bought the Nismo replacement bushing that's made out of a harder rubber and had a shop press it in for you.

update:
i installed the driver hand side revised traverse link, however the revised seems to be a tad bit shorter than the old ones... i believe these helped prevent the tire feathering. anyway, the depth of the seat that holds the nut right behind the rotor itself has been reduced from 0.7 cm (old) to 0.15 cm (revised), so the nut cannot be tightened with the cotter pin in place. Once installed and wheel in place, i could have sworn the wheel/tire had a positive camber! after driving for a bit, seemed to gone to an offslight negative camber. anyway, need to buy the lower seated nuts and install the SPC rear camber/toe bolts, i'll have the car aligned.

i'll post the pics tomorrow as it is in my friend's digicam.

as for the bushings, i should have just bought the nismo ones and have a shop install it. to make a bushing washer out of urethane rubber or elastomer is harder than i thought! after inspecting the damaged bushing, it's not a solid piece, but a very thin vertical sheet at the center. so afterall, the nismo ones are better pieces to use.

panda007: just to be clear, did you use the Nismo "Front Lower Transverse Link Bushing" (part number 54560-RRZ30) from ?

One of the bushings on my girlfriend's car is bad and I'm looking for some solution other than replacing the whole arm.

Thanks,
Evan

Woah, thread back from the dead!

Yes that is the correct bushing. I just replaced both the inner bushing and the outer (shock absorber) bushings circled in red below on my control arms since mine were bad as well.

It would be a good idea to replace both bushings on the control arm at the same time. I went ahead and ordered the Whiteline Plus bushings since the Nismo ones seem to never be in stock. So far the handling is excellent!

Get the Whiteline bushings form everythingg35.com

I recently replaced my inner lower control arm (transverse link) bushings to Nismo... the OEM are perfectly fine (I only replaced because I was doing compression rod bushing too, so did these for the helluvit).

Anyway - you are close... if you want to save some money from getting new ones, let me know - I'll sell you these oem.
