I noticed couple drops of dark black oil near the passenger side rear wheel i removed the wheel to inspect the shock but no oil on the shock then I noticed oil was coming from rear cratle bushing or subframe bushing whatever it’s called i have never heard of these being filled with oil ??? Anyone had this happen before?

I dont believe those bushings are fluid filled, but I could be wrong. The differential is cooled by the ATF cooler up front so there are lines for that. Did the fluid have that yucky gear oil smell?
After doing some research seems that they are in fact oil filled I have inspected everything around it an oil seems to be on the bushing only I don’t see any aftermarket bushings that can be purchased for the v3 after doing some reading looks like people are using bushings for ZL1 what would be a best replacement oem,solid or poly.. I don’t want vibration or noise any input would help thank you
