Thumbs up well I finally got the whiteline diff lock kit bolts installed...

it took an 1hr and a half of nonstop action with a slight buzz from a beer.

I followed the instructions and loosened up the 4 diff carrier bolts as in the directions but looking back I shouldve first tried to thread the bolts from the start to see if they could slide right in....

It took a long time for me the get everything lined up right by loosening, tightening the bolts from side to side, and then trying to thread the bolts.
After many attempts and after many failures I eventually got the 2 bolts to thread by hand until I couldn't turn it and then used a socket wrench.

since I lent my friend my big torque wrench I had to torque down the two 17mm longass bolts with a plain jane 2 1/2 foot breaker bar w/ extension. no ratchet=no fun.

Man O man it took alot of effort and manpower to finally properly tighten all the bolts.
What made it even harder was that I didn't lift the wagon when doing this mod and I didn't have alot of room to work in. I am very skinny

anyways for 30 bucks the bolts are great. I feel that this is a great mod for those who already have the group N mounts since it really tightens things up.

The effects of the bolts feels like how it felt when I first installed the tranny and engine mounts. If you have the mounts I'm sure you know what I mean when I talk about the in slack and movement in the driveline. Also I was suprised that theres better throttle response.
I haven't pushed the car hard yet so I don't have any impressions on handlings differences yet but so far the improvement in shifting feel is good.

I didn't notice extra nvh, but my suspension is far from stock now....

cn: bolts are great cheap mod. great if you have group tranny/engine mounts. Improved shifting feel, less slack and clunk when shifting.
