I recently put spl solid subframe bushings in my s14 and stared to drive my car and noticed a noise. The noise only happens when i drive and gets louder as i speed up. Its like a clunking noise. I cant seem to figure out if the noise is related to the new bushings or not. Im lost and would apprecciate any and all the help i can get. Other than the bushings the car has stock suspension.

First step, double check all your subframe bolts.

If those are ok, it might be the solid bushings will transmit more noise from any diff to the cabin, so the diff could have been clunking before, you just hear it more.
What diff do you have?

Did you also do the two diff bushings in the subframe?

If everything around it solid, and there's two rubber bushings on the back of the diff, it's going to clunk. It's not a problem tho, nothing is going to break.

Not sure if this was ever resolved, but i had a 'clunk' after doing subframe bushings as well. For me it was the driveshaft hitting the clips holding the ebrake cables. I just bent them out of the way and no more clunking. Also didnt do the diff bushing, but i really need to -_-
