    Looking great. I will report back as soon as it's arrived and installed. We just got hit by a big snow storm though, so it may be a while before I can get on it....

    It can be with either trans. If you haven't experienced good but that doesn't mean you never will.

    Usually I hook pretty well, if it breaks loose, the car just goes sideways or just spins and doesn't go forward very quickly as its spinning.. The wheelhop is caused from the car hooking then slipping correct?

    It can multiple things, your surface, suspension, load, etc.

    The shop has to remove the differential from your car. Then they have to push out the old bushings. They should be able to get the book time from that description.

    True story.

    I DIY as much as i can but that looks like a ~7 hour job and i don't feel like getting into it my self. I have a couple local shops that i have quite a bit of confidence in.
