    I took my rear subframe out for rust cleaning ,powder coating and bushing replacement. I took the old ones out using torch was an easy job. So couple days ago I received my new torque solution bushings. As I review the installation ,it says,that I need to keep the original center pin with original cups. I saved cups but I lost all my center pins,that goes inside the bushing. Any ideas of where I could get a new pins???

    Bingo. However it may require machining to get the both the OD and ID to the correct size.

    I'm dropping my rear subframe in the next week or so, I'll be sure to get measurements for you.

    ...and before you ask, no I won't sell you the sleeves.

    ...you are talking about the subframe bushing sleeves that are physically in the rubber that's pressed into the bushings in the subframe correct? If so, 2".
