I used a Prothane Total Kit for z31, thou it did not have the rear subframe bushes, and the ARB bushings didint fit at all (there was basicly any size except 25mm in the kit but, and i can cofirm that both the front ant the rear ARB's are 25mm), everything else fit just fine.
Then i bought the subframe bushes seperately from MMR http://www.mmr-direct.com/. I also bought the front control arm bushes from them, because i didint like how the z31 ones fit (you have to remove the outer metal liner (or whatever you call that thing ).

i emailed MMR in the US about their subframe bushes, they said they will fit ours, they ship to the uk all in (exc VAT if customs see it) £45 they also recommended their diff bush be replaced with them coz of age i guess, all in about £60 delivered. (thats the diff bush and the crossmember bushes)

that to me sounds very reasonable.

he got all the other bushes from superflex, and had the subframe ones made up didnt he.

ill paste in the email they sent me

Our subframe bushings are the correct bushings for your car. The price including standard shipping would be $88. 00 USD (45.11GBP). Shipping would take about 10 days and it would take about 5 days for us to get them shipped as we don't have them in stock I would also recommend installing one of our solid differential mounts along with the subframe mounts. The differential mount is $25 and shipping on it would be an additional $3.

I have checked your catalogue and found this part number S12SM2001 could
you tell me if these will fit my car, and what sort or price you can
supply me a set including delivery to the uk in GBP.

Thanks for your time, and hope to hear from you soon.

basicly i think the rear subframe is the same as the z31, the front tie rods are 280zx bushes, and link pin bushes are universal, front are 10mm rear are 8mm holes, and D bushes are universal, 25mm iirc.

checking on fast z31 and s12 dont share subframe bushes, im not really that worried bout all the other bushes, they are avail from superflex, but the subframe bushes dont seem to be available from the uk at all, the guy at the top of this page got MMR subframe bushes, and he hasnt said they dont fit, so i can only assume they do, but mine are gonna be MOT failiure this year, and they rattle like a goodun when the car is unlevel i.e bumped up a kerb etc.

has anyone else got MMR subframe bushes for the s12??

I've got some that aren't fitted, they aren't for sale but I could maybe look at getting them copied? Also got the tophat bush for the diff.

Datdrift brought some in the same order as me and fitted them up without issue AFAIK

that would be a great idea, only worth doing if they can be copied for less than £60 for both, do you know anywhere that can do this??

There's a small engineering company five mins down the road from my work, I'll do some googling but there's loads of places around.

What do you want them made from?
