Definitely interested in a package deal for MM, Diff and Cradle bushings! Looking forward to it!
    Are you still running the stock shifter or a short throw?

    Still stock, once my travelling schedule slows, I'm sending my shifter off to Brian for modification.

    How difficult is removing the stock cradle bushings? Can this be done by the average v owner in the garage with hand tools?

    It can be done with "minimal" tools. It is not uncommon for people to burn the rubber out with a torch and then carefully cut a slit in the metal bushing shell (not the cradle!) with a hacksaw. Once the slit is cut you can bend the bushing shell in on itself and it will come right out.

    Like this picture I pulled off google:
    pull_small.jpg

    It may sound scary but a lot of repair shops do it this way if they cant position the part on the press.

    Speaking of which, how do you recommend removing the differential bushing and pressing the new one in?

    Removal can be done with a bushing removal tool (homemade or local auto parts store rental) or the burning/cutting method described above.

    Installation requires your hands, that's all. It's a snug fit but its all done by hand. We will have a pictorial up on our website soon showing the cradle bushing and diff bushing installation steps.

    I just ordered these and the diff bushings. I read that you will offer a black friday discount. I seen this on another forum. Being that I just got these ordered can you help a member out with a price adjust??
