Default whiteline Rear Differential Bushings & Rear Differential Lock Bolts

Are these worth it? Im getting more and more into suspension and want to get into auto-x ing. I already have eiback springs on koni struts, strut bars and sway bars. Are these worth it, and do you actually notice a difference?

I installed the subframe lock bolts as one of the first suspension mods to my car.

Before I installed them I had an issue with steering that really bugged me. At different times the steering wheel would be in a different position while driving straight. If I had passengers it might be in a different location. My interpretation of what is happening is that the rear subframe is moving (rotating) causing the rear wheels to point a little left or right randomly depending on load or whatever bumps I had just hit. After moving it did not go back to center but just stayed put. I put the subframe lock bolts in and this problem disappeared entirely.

Turn in Concepts is going to have replacement rear diff bushings out in a few weeks for a fraction of the price of all others. Great buy for sure. check out turninconcepts.com
