    I think the kit will replace the 3 stock diff bushings then add a 4th one somewhere on the passenger side sub-frame that connects via an arm to a custom diff plate. Think of the arm as a really short toe arm.

    I'll be sure to give my feedback on this. I'll be dropping the car off the 25th or 26th.

    nope.i applied for an application patent today,as soon as i receive confirmation of patent pending i'll put it all up to quench all the inquiries into the extra pieces...+1 on the DEATH TO WHEELHOP bit,this has taken months and multiple incarnations,a lot of money and even more time.I'm 110% sure this will handle anything anyone can throw at it. I'm pushing along the process as fast as possible(without sacrificing quality control).Thanks for all the interest!

    @uniter just to clarify, you have this installed on a fully stock rear suspension (ie, links, subframe bushings)?

    Dropped the car off today and got the chance to see the pieces that will go on her. Pictures don't do it any justice, the pieces are beautiful! I have total confidence that Rick has engineered this product to the fullest. It also helps that he gives a lifetime warranty on his product! I'm not much for doing reviews on $#@!, but I will give my thoughts on the driving experience afterwards.

    After seeing @uniter car in action I have no doubt it will work flawlessly.

    Update...all the cnc bits fit tight as a glove,its all the perfect press fit i had hoped for. Calling the cnc shop and greenlighting production for that part of it...on to the next little hurdle of waterjetting brackets,i'm making them by hand currently,it's a little more time consuming than I'd like,but that's life.some of the early shippers will probably get the hand made ones,lovingly "caressed" by yours truly until the ball gets rolling. Stay tuned,wont be long!

    it takes probably an hour longer than doing a standard diff bushing upgrade, all my bushings are designed to be drawn into their perspective areas save for one for a "press fit" each kit will have detailed instructions with pictures/diagrams to make install for the do it yourselfer a little easier.if one isn't comfortable with removal of the diff and the oem bushings(some special tools are required),seeking the assistance of a well equipped shop is recommended...for those of you interested in the arms/bracket/bushings that already have solid mounts, it shouldnt take more than a half hour to an hour to install that bit,you should be able to squeak it in without removal of the diff.i have not tested this with the delrin bushings in opposition to mine,theoretically,it "should" work either way,although the press fit ones are a sure thing, and my bushings are an interlocking two-piece design for the rear upper subframe to add additional support. during testing,urethane bushings provided less than favorable results in addition to the arm/bracket/bushing part of the kit.it is very important to ensure that there is no possible movement of the differential unit to achieve total success in fixing the problem.
    thanks
