PART NUMBER: 61-1926
Fits bushings in OE bracket with part number NA5F 39730 and fits manual versions only.
Requires removal of the differential to install.
Had these sitting around for a long time. I was a bit timid considering what "might" be required to install them.. Install instructions below, you can probably handle it.
Installed them in about an hour give or take.
-Tight Space to Work In
-Noticable Performance Improvement
-Worth the Money for the Benefits
Benefits mostly revolve around the differential's more direct feel putting power down. Does significantly help wheel hop depending on situation. Transmission should also move around a bit less and shift better. Havent really noticed but the gearbox may feel a bit smoother.
Had a situation where I reved the car up a good bit and got off the clutch quickly(twice back to back different pavement/smooth and poor quality). It was dry, sunny, and 75. Normally a "careless" poorly executed launch ends in wheel hop and a bad time..
Well, not this time!! It just spun the tires in a controlled manor and felt much tighter!!
Albeit, on a rainy day just the day before it hopped really bad back to back to back.. Was very discouraging for my first impression's of the new bushings.. It must just have to do with my specific setup(wheels,tires,springs,etc...). It used to rip off nice slides and spins in the rain but not yesterday.. But in the dry and at the first auto x event this weekend the car felt great!!
In summary I would recommend them. Definitely do work as described.
-17mm socket w/ratchet and extension's
-Torque wrench ($20 @ Harbor Freight)
-Jack and jack stands
-Jack up and secure car enough to work under it.
-Lightly support diff or the trans brace bolts slightly forward(use wood or plastic between vice surface and vehicle).
- There is an aluminum bracket above the diff. One bush each side. After diff is supported, remove the bolts through the bushings. 17mm socket
-After bush bolt's are removed lower diff to rest on subframe.
-If you reach up over the back of the subframe you will feel 4 nuts fastened to studs above the diff. Remove these nuts. 17mm wrench
-After removing these nuts you should be able to lift the bracket off the diff. You dont need to remove it from the car. But you can if you want, I did not.
Clean bush voids before installing inserts(I used compressed air).
-Put in your insert's, check included packaging to know which Bush's are A or B. I believe A Bush's went on the outside.
-Torque spec is 45lb ft for nuts and diff bolts.
-Put it back together and enjoy.
Getting the differential out is kind of annoying, but I had mine out to swap from the GT open diff to the club limited-slip diff. Since it was already out, I slipped in these inserts and they make the shifting and rear end feel noticeably more firm. My car is built to be a track car, but I went with the street inserts for a semi-firm feel.
My car is essentially stock suspension wise currently but I was told these Inserts would help shifter feel and the slight wiggle you feel from rear diff at times
I honestly have to say the street derometer but Inserts make the car feel soooooooooooooooooooooooooo much better going through gears feels way more solid and the car seems feel even more planted when the lsd is doing it's thing for only like $70 this is definitely a mod you will enjoy no matter if your 100% stock or not
