    Interest in Delrin Cradle Bushings ?

    I did some talking to the guy doing some fab work on my car about the Rear Cradle bushing inserts like SW used to sell.
    He can get the delrin material and have them machined up if there is still a market for them.
    Cost-wise it would make sense to do like 10 sets at a time and if my math was correct, between the materials and labor they would be around $275 (give or take) shipped per set...


    What do you guys think? Still people out there that need them?
    Group Buy or something...

    Seems a bit pricey at $275 a set, but having said that EVERYBODY should have these.

    I'm sure if there are enough guys he'd do them for $250, which is what I think most of us paid back in the day...

    I'm interested but curious on install how-to. I've searched but nothing has really popped up.

    Also I have a gen IV diff w/ the CS mount/block now so will this be worth the extra dollars currently?

    I noticed a difference right away. Tightened it up nicely. As far as the install, they basically lowered the rear cradle, slipped these in and bolted it back up.

    Do they go on both sides of the stock rubber bushing? Or just the underside?

    Go here: http://www.cadillacfaq.com/faq/answers/bushinginstall/index.html

    C
    lick on "Suspension/steering," then click on "Rear cradle bushing installation." You'll need a cheater on your breaker bar to loosen those cradle bolts and then again to tighten them back up, otherwise these instructions are the best ones I've found.

    Good luck!

    Then this sounds like another step I need to take in getting my car to feel more planted and not so wishy-washy.

    How would you prefer the funds? Pm me if that's easier.
