have you noticed the diff being a lil noisy after this mod, caused by the vibration traveling through the chassi?!?!

Well, probably– Just considering that's what all upgraded bushings will do (add NVH)... But that's why we get them! I'm getting my set soon.

i am very interested in tightening up the back of my wrx, and with so many options i am wondering what comments those at perrin have about the heated comparison of theirs and others kits. it seems like Tic has full bushings and the whiteline lock down is a solid bolt, unlike the perrin and tic. my end goal with the car is full out track prepped and timed lap car, so what assurances can you offer that your cheaper sls, can stand up compared to full bushings and solid bolts? do you offer any warranty if your lockdown bolts break or the insert breaks? here is one discussion i have been following.

Our rear diff lockdown will add some whine under hard acceleration and low RPM, but it will reduce a lot of movement! The subframe lockdown will only add little NVH since it includes mostly bolts.

The benefits of our diff lockdown is there are no need to press in any bushings! Just remove a nut, insert new bushings, and tighten it back down!

We do have a warranty, but I've never seen any of the bolts break ever. The only way I could see a bolt breaking if you got into an accident.

Well, not sure if the bolt broke, but something broke.

This is going to sound stupid, but here you go. I bought Kartboy Botox Bolts recently, and went to go install them, not realizing that the PO had already installed Perrin Lockout Bolts. Not knowing what those looked like (until now), I decided to remove the bolts that were currently in the subframe. Used an impact to remove the driver side.

Came out easy, realized that I must have pull out a locking subframe bolt and decided to put it back in.

At about 3/4 of thew way in, the bolt starts spinning fast. Something snapped in there. The bolt moved in and out about 1/2" but wont come all the way out.

I'm stuck with a spinning sub frame bolt. Not sure what broke in there, or even what the hole is welded to, or if the bolt snapped in half.

Any ideas on how to get it out? Tried to use a prybar on the bolt head but it wasnt moving.

Thanks for your help all.

Sorry to hear about your bolt. It seems like that you broke the weld on the nut in the subframe. That nut is held on just with two small welds, and could break if it's overtightened, or the bolt going through it are marred up. The only way to fix it would be to get it from the top, which would require drilling a hole in the trunk above the nut.

Well, OK. A few questions then because I'm likely going to want to fix this.

1) How do I make sure I'm drilling right above the bolt?

2) What kind and size bit will I need to make a big enough hole to get a socket in there?

3) Can I just replace the nut with a locknut and washer or should I reweld the nut on there (no access to a welder but I could if I had to).

4) Should I just leave it as is? I think there may be some additional noise that wasnt there since this thing broke, and my plan was tightening up the rear end, not loosening it up!

Thanks for the advice, it's a bummer but not that big of a deal.

PS Love your products!

If you PM me your address, I can send you a picture of about where you're going to want to drill.

You'll want a drill bit the size of the socket, so it'll have to be pretty big.

You could replace it with a washer and a nut, that would be easier then to welding a new nut on there.

You could leave it the way that it is right now, but it would probably be annoying hearing the bolt loose back there.
