Then I moved to the rear of the vehicle to install the Whiteline Rear Diff Positive Power Kit Inserts. Whiteline is apparently no longer doing yellow bushings ( ). Here is a picture of the stock bushing which these slide into:
All the bolts back there were super rusty and tough to thread so I sand blasted them. Before:
Made threading those things on a lot easier. He is the other place the inserts go. Getting the bolts loosed up to take this off was a real PITA to say the least.
All done with the inserts
Then I installed the Perrin Subframe Lockdown Kit. This one was pretty straight forward and didn't take much time. Just some stubborn bolts and shifting to get everything to bolt back up.
All done with the Perrin parts:
Unfortuntely, I probably won't really be able to feel much of a difference for the subframe lockdown kit because I have my snow tires on (super squishy and soft) and I can't really push the handling limits at all. The driveline definitely felt a lot better. No more clunking when I let off the throttle after hard acceleration and it just generally feels much more responsive to accelerating. There is some more noise from the transmission and I can feel some more vibration in my feet. It doesn't really bother me; I actually like it. Makes it feel more race car like Next up is more for the suspension. I am going to be getting new springs and struts; mine are definitely on the way out. Going to go with Swift springs, Koni inserts, and Whiteline Com C strut mounts.
