    Re: REVSHIFT Rear Cradle Busings

    These must be a brand new item they manufacture. I swear they weren't on their website two days ago when I was looking at the new Differential bushing. I contacted them yesterday by email and they said they are putting together a "how to" photo and description tutorial for the Diff mount, I also wonder it they will make the Diff block like CS does?

    No one has, they just came out with them and put them on the site a few hours ago.

    Re: REVSHIFT Rear Cradle Busings

    Is it common for the stock rear diff bushings to fail or get worn out?
    I'm only wondering because if they don't wear out or fail then adding that extra stiffness to the rear will only move the energy to the front bushing which by design is very weak and subject to significant loads causing it to fail even sooner (even with an upgraded poly bushing).

    I could be wrong as I'm not sure how much deflection is allowed from the rear of the diff. All I know is with the CS front diff bushing, pinion brace and block in place I'm still "clunking" under certain conditions meaning stuff is still moving around back there.

    My goal is to get some video at some point under the car to see what's going.

    These bushings may do the trick though if the stockers are super soft and allowing all that deflection to happen in the first place. Who will be the guinea pig!?!

    No, we will not. It is not necessary with our diff bushing.

    The two rear diff bushings don't wear out nearly as often as the front diff bushing. We are working on the rear bushings, though. We are addressing every bushing on the car.

    So these work for all v1 model years ( including 06 and 07)? I thought the cradles were different for pre and post 06 and therefore require different bushings. Also, for a V with 650 to 700whp would you recommend the red or blue? I'd love to get all of my bushings replaced (except motor mounts) over the thanksgiving holidays so I need to purchase today.

    They fit all V1 years. We have a 2004 in the shop and we measured a 2006 cradle. They are all the same. As far as we can tell, the only difference is different oem bushings in the 06-07 cradle. I think they say the cradle is different because the oem bushings are not available alone, you have to purchase the whole cradle if you want new oem bushings.

    The 80A bushings are a happy medium between the oem bushings and the 95A's. I recommend 80A for a daily driver because they still have some give to them. The 95A bushings are hard. I recommend them for more of a race application. The 95A's don't dampen as much and will let you feel the road. If you don't mind ride harshness then 95A's are a good choice. For cradle bushings, either the 80A or 95A are going to be immensely better than the oem rubber bushings.

    Good stuff, Revshift is giving Creative Steel a run! I'm running their motor mounts and tranny mount insert and love them, wish I would have seen the diff bushing before I cursed and sweated trying to get my creative steel one in! Def gonna pick up a set of these cradle bushings, the price is right, just curious to see how difficult to install and remove the OEM bushings are.

    Thanks for the response to the earlier questions. Any ETA for trailing arm bushings? I was looking at another manufacturer for the but would prefer to stick with Rev Shift if possible. I wouldn't mind being a beta tester . I've got to get things firmed up ASAP. I still have wheelhop with the Hendrix axels (which BTW they don't claim to fix) and don't want to shatter the differential with upcoming mods (TVS 2300, heads, cam, headers - just waiting on cam and heads at this point). The bushings will definitely get a good "test" with this platform and 275/35 on the rears.

    Our trailing arm bushings will be released within a few days. Sit tight!

    Do you offer any discounts on full car bushing buys?

    Of course, Package deals, I just purchased the Diff bushing today, I already have the MM's with the silicone heat sleeves, and the transmount. now you have the cradle bushings and soon the Trailing arm bushing too, I should have waited and got a package deal, Ive paid shipping four times already. I know: wah wah wah.Well still worth every penny so far. Keep up the great work RS.

    Re: REVSHIFT Rear Cradle Busings

    Just installed the trans mount yesterday...what a difference! More vibes, less Caddy feel...but shifts are smooth, less noise, and I don't have to put the V in a headlock to get it to go into Reverse! Definitely interested in a package deal for MM, Diff and Cradle bushings! Looking forward to it!
