    wont hurt unless you snap a bolt off, if you clean it up you can see where its seeping from exactly. car off the fluid is way over the pans gasket.

    sometimes the pan bolt holes dimple, then the pans not pulled as tight. could try one of them metal plates some older tannys had to spread the bolts load out on the pan.

    The dorman brand does not look correct given the rear subframe bushing I just removed.

    These are the GM parts number for the rear sub-frame bushings. I guess you can re-use retainer and bolt, which saves me about $30.00.

    10249731 Insulator, Upper....$38.93
    10248771 Insulator, Lower.....$18.75
    11611679 Insulator, Retainer...$10.80
    10410940 Insulator, Bolt.........$5.94

    I degreased it and wiped it down. I always try and keep it grease and oil free.
