    Got it from Wayne at AVSport (these are the same guys who sponsored the winning SCCA ProRally Champion last year (WRX). Good crew- very knowledgable.

    Thanks!

    The more I'm looking at all these parts.....I'm probably going to have to just do all the rear bushings right now.....and save the fronts for a little later......costs of the swap are getting a little high and money is getting a little low.

    Helps- but not "cures". When shifting hard I don't think anything cures the clunk, that's my experience. There are two more bushings in fornt of the diff, that can be replaced (a little more work though) that might even ease it more????

    good deal- I'm surprised more folks don't try this- the oe bushings/mounts on the whole tend to be very sloppy (for a sports car anyway)

    they're terrible. with your fingers you can push the middle of the bushings past the body of the mount. it's a great mod, i couldn't be happier.
