If you were on the fence about these; BUY THEM!

I just got them on and the difference between them and the OEM 12 year old bushings is like night and day.

I you have a short shift kit you will get this perfectly; remember when you first installed it and it felt SO much more crisp, SO much smoother, etc? That is how the car feels after getting these on, and in addition to the short shifter the car is MUCH tighter.

Cant wait for my JHM shift bushings and 034 tranny mounts to get here, I think the car will feel MUCH better with everything on.

Can you comment on the install? How easy was it to remove the old bushings?

taking the mount out wasnt too hard at all. taking the bushings out is another story; there are a few ways to DIY but i couldnt get them out. i took them in and had them pressed out in 20 minutes.

the stern bushings are cake to put back in.

he took the parts off the car, and brought them to a local shop with a hydraulic or pneumatic press, which they used to press out the bushings.

the factory bushings are pressed in, and they need to be pressed in as they are all one piece
