    The pinion mount bushing requires a bit more work than the seal.
    The seal is actually pretty easy, even easier with the exhaust off.
    The bushing requires removal of the right axle.
    We have a new tool that makes changing the bushing easier, but you can't get it in the hole with the axle in place. It still takes some real work to change the bushing.

    GM is out of motor mounts. I heard they were changing suppliers on a lot of parts and as a result there are no parts in any of the distribution facilities. I wanted to replace one yesterday but there is no stock to be had.
    Hopefully UUC will come out with some soon.

    Chris has gone through several of them so maybe you could blame him?!
    Just kiddin'

    I need to visit my dealer soon. I was gonna ask him to change the pinion bushing, but if its a big deal, that gives me more incentive to come see you guys. Dont want something to get moved around in the diff, then end up with a whine.
    As for the seal? Not touching it until it starts leaking.

    Is this a dead end now? I was hoping to get the revised bushing as mine is shot but have been waiting for the improved version instead of the GM replacement.

    Someone PM Luke maybe, see if he can rattle UUC's cage a bit and get some status info.
    If I think of it I'll ask him, I have been out sick for a couple days and still not doing well... plus I am 4 days behind on all my personal stuff due to this friggin flu!

    Re: UUC Differential Bushing / Trans Mount / Motor Mount Thread

    I am as pissed off as you guys about the time this is taking, maybe more because I am the one passing along there incorrect release dates and looking foolish. the latest update I was given was that I would have the first set to install on a test vehicle to make sure they are right by the end of Feb, well guess what they are not here yet!!! I just got off the phone with one of the guys at UUC who is going to pass my "disapointment" along to the guy in charge of this project when he talks to him later (not in the office today). I am positive these will be as high quality as everything else they sell when they finally are available but I agree with all of you this is taking a long damn time.

    Re: UUC Differential Bushing / Trans Mount / Motor Mount Thread

    I am told I should have prototype engine and trans mounts here by April 9 or 12th. they are going on a local "destroyer of engine mounts" car as soon as I get them. once we determine they are right 3-4 weeks to have a hundred of them on my shelf. So hopefully end of April beginning of May. I think UUC now appreciates my level of displeasure with how long this has been going on so im optimistic this info is correct this time!!! I should have pricing in the next day or 2

    Needless to say, they will be well tested
