I just found out that my 03 Nissan 350z's front traverse link bushings are completely shredded! I called around to most body shops and they ALL told me that you have to buy the whole thing instead of just the bushings. ($200 instead of $60)
I finally got a correct answer from a website called mynismo.com who said that the problem comes from when the car gets towed from the front without the tow hook installed. The factory warns of this problem, but no recalls were made.
Most people say that you should just use your tow hook when getting towed, but what if I get my car towed without me knowing it! So the towing guys wrap around the first thing solid and out pops your bushings.
Hope this helps solve this mystery!
