    You got it. If you can remove the whole cat-back it'll make your life way easier. The lower you can drop it the easier it will be to get at the bushing

    I'll be removing my entire exhaust system to do the header install. So should be able to tackle that Bush at the same time.

    Did you install that rubber block that CS offers at the same time you did the diff bushing?

    Right. Just wanted your opinion if it was worth it or not.

    Creative Steel motor mounts? or UMI? Im leaning towards CS. . Because the umi ones look like they are directly for racing on a track. And this car is my daily driver. What you think?

    The mounts and installation instructions have been discussed a million times and there are excellent instructions on this forum. The CS diff mount has to be pressed in while the UUC diff mount is a slip fit because it doesn't have an outer metal sleeve. You don't have to remove the axles or completely remove the two rear bolts on the diff. Just loosen them enough to allow the pinion to drop down. You'll need a 13/16 ratchet wrench to get at them easily because the park brake lines are in the way. Luke at Lindsay Cadillac sells the UUC diff bushing. I have one of the first ones made and it's still good after three years. I used to make and rent the removal tool but people decided not to return them. There are at least 7 or 8 of them floating around people's garages. If you start a thread asking for one I bet you'll find one.

    Your clunking sounds more like the clunk from the stock dual mass flywheel, also known as parade clunk.

    Is this a legit question?

    ----------

    @PISSNUOFF thanks for the info man, I have read many upon many of the prior posts on bushings and mounts. After I posted my question. Although I was not aware that you could install the uuc one without needing a special tool. That's good to know. As well as the fact that you've been rolling with the uuc for 3 years now without a problem. Thanks for the words of wisdom!

    ----------

    @PISSNUOFF what do you recommend I get to replace the stock dual mass flywheel?
