    Anyone else running Whiteline Rear Diff Support Lock Bushings on their WRX?

    I ordered these for my 03 WRX and they just arrived a couple days ago. Lately I've been reading some bad reviews on them so I decided not to install them yet. Is anyone else running these on their WRX? Contemplating whether or not I should put them on my car.

    Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you to their level and beat you with experience.

    Really bad vibrations at certain speeds was pretty much it. Just noise complaints on other forums about these bushings. Review might not of been the right word, my bad.

    Are you referring to the rear subframe lockdown bolts or the rear diff stay bushings?

    Bushings, the NVH is bad after installing them I guess.

    You don't say? lol When you upgrade from soft rubber to poly bushings in the driveline that vibration goes somewhere. If you can live with NVH it wont be a problem. People make the mistake of buying a WRX and expecting a nice quiet ride. There is little to no sound deadening in the GD chassis as is, adding poly bushings make it worse. I don't know why you bought them unless you have all the other driveline mounts/bushings and plan on launching a lot.

    I got the wrx knowing it would be noisey, definitely didn't expect it to be quiet lol. Just wanted to know how much worse the vibration would get. I guess just to have them laying around, not in any rush to install them. I plan a head so I like buying things for it a head of time haha.
