It got rid of the sloppyness in the rear and dips/bouncing causing one side of rear tires to rub. I already had the poly suspension bushings and Eibach/Tokico combo. After the SF bushings, very tight in the handling of the rear... Well worth replacing, if it's your daily driver (mine is a daily... mostly street, some highway).

How are you guys finding the diff noise with these? The diff noise is driving me nuts, even with a tight rebuilt diff. Not sure if I need to put in a brand new ring and pinion to get rid of the noise, or switch back to softer bushings. It's a steady tone as the diff vibrations are amplified by the floorboards.

I have Dynamat throughout mine and was able to tell that the drivetrain noises are alot more noticeable... Especially if there's some sloppiness in the tranny/driveshaft/LSD. My driveshaft/center carrier bearing and tranny were Fed up. Replaced both and a new clutch, now is much smoother/quieter. However, I can tell the U-joints in the replacement driveshaft are weak and probably need replacing as well.

pm sent to 7m2bar and northbaysupra.
I have started making poly top cushions for front subframe kit to be included in front kit if anyone are interested.
I will be visiting U.S.A in mid November so if any one doesnt want to pay shipping costs for kits,i can bring it over as part of my luggage.
This time I will make sure i sent kit asap once I land on U.S soil.

I think he might be either very very busy, or something. I emailed him a week ago since raptor racing is not restocking, and haven't heard back. oh well.

Email sent to every one.
Red bushes----very hard
yellow bushes---hard.
yellow------bit harder than stock.
Orange bushes-----stock stiffness
This should give people an idea of what they want.

Cheers,
Ronnie

Send Ronnie a PM. I just ordered a set, although I don't think he has been on since Oct. 14th.

Hopefully they will arrive sooner than later.

I don't really understand why folks would go for the reds over the yellow for a street car, but I guess that's how it goes.

if it's a racecar, then I would :)

I bought a set of front and rear subframe bushings a while back, and the sleeves in the rear set fit snugly, whereas the sleeves in the front set are rather loose. It would seem that this could cause handling problems. Is this how the set was intended to be, or should I be concerned?
