Default Whiteline Diff-Lock Bushings

This is a simple little mod that stiffens the rear diff so that it won't wobble around. It also completely eliminates the 'thump' you would sometimes get when shifting or going over bumps so its definately a mod that improves drivability.

A few negatives is the increased cabin noise because you can hear the rear diff actually working if you pass 3500RPM. Its not intrusive but you will definately hear some of it even with a full header-back exhaust like me (and my gf says my car is louder than a bus). If you're a person that can't tolerate cabin noise then live with the 'thump' and forget this mod because the rear diff is located just under the back seat. I think sound proofing it will help which I'm gonna try doing in a few weeks.

Otherwise I think this is a great bang-for-the-buck mod.
Bushings $40CAN
Labour less than 30mins.

Highly recommended if you already stiffened up your front end with STI engine & tranny mounts, you should definately do something about the rear and install these bushings to keep the diff from jiggling.
