I am poised to re-unite the subframe, including engine and gearbox etc, with the body and find I have two of the top hat shaped rubber bushes that are used at the front and the middle connection points that are different to the other six. (The bushes at the rearward positions are of plain cylindrical shape which I presume is the norm)

 The larger diameter part is thicker(approx 30mm cf 18mm) and the smaller diameter part is slightly thinner(20mm cf 22mm) on the odd pair.They have a spacing collar inside to make up the difference in overall height when they are bolted up.

 Judging from the bolt lengths it looks as if the odd ones fit on top of the body above the turrets in the engine bay.Can anybody confirm this please?
 
 It seems a bit strange however as the extra thickness will not affect the installed height of the engine etc relative to the body if that is where they are supposed to go. If they were used in the lower middle position ie between the turret and the body they would raise the body slightly relative to the engine etc, as would also be the case if they were used in the "upper front" position.

 I hope this is not too confusing and that someone can shed some light on the matter.
