Default Whiteline Subframe Bushing Kit And Steering Rack Bushing Install

Eh, it's more of a driveline type of thing, but it's neither specific to NA or FI. Firstly, I've put up a page on the diff bushing kit install, and revamped the steering rack bushing install page due to people going crazy trying to get the damn things installed . Those are located here:

Now the question . The rear diff bushings are loud. Very loud. Exceedingly loud- like a deaf geriatric. Much louder than I expected. I took a few liberties with the install, but I've never noticed this much noise from a single mod before- not the engine nor tranny mounts, nor the subframe locking bolts. I don't mind the racket, because I love the result- no matter how hard I try, I can't get the rear end to "thunk" anymore. Just curious if other folks noticed a great deal of noise with these installed, or is it just a culmination of my attempts to make the car unstreetable with hardened bushings . Any input is welcome/appreciated!
