differential Lockdown came in!

Lockdown differential came in!

This is literally a work of art....pics will never do this kit justice! This kit is made by "Rick@DEFIV" and it is worth every penny as far as quality goes. I also got powerflex subframe bushings going in at the same as well as the wavetrac...pretty sure (1) of those is replaced with the differential lock down kit though.

Differential Lock-Down





Powerflex subframe bushings:

IIRC all bushings are used. Your four subframe bushings will mate the subframe to the chassis and the 3 solid bushings mount the diff to the subframe. The extra bushing with the tie rod will go one of the unused subframe lightening/stiffening thru-holes.

Very nice looking kit. I went for Turner Motorsport aluminium diff bushes and AKG 70D subframe bushes instead of the Powerflex kit.

Out of interest, how are you finding the BC coilovers and are you using their springs or Swifts?

I thought one of the subframe bushings was replaced with one of the bushings from the kit, I see what you are saying now.
