    I don't see why you couldn't press out the old CS diff bushing. The stock one too. IF, you're using one of the press tools. I got my stock one out just find with CS's diff removal tool and didn't need the tool to put CS's in since it was very close to the size to go in.

    FWIW, when I did mine with and without the block, the block made more of difference in drivetrain clunk/movement.

    It appears that you already purchased from RevShift. so, test them back to back and report, um, back

    This is true if you are talking about the CS trans mount. Incorrect if you are referring to our trans insert. Aside from some people with worn aftermarket shifter parts, we have heard nothing but great reviews for our trans insert.
    What is true? raising the trans a bit too high and/or transmits a lot of noise?

    Have you tested back to back against your products?

    It's the creative steel bushings that raise the trans to high, not the REV shift trans insert. I've been running the insert for over a year, no noise.

    That's why I asked RevShift of their response to CS products.

    Quote replies on this forum should copy both parties responses, not just the last response -- makes it harder to follow.

    We have not used the cs trans mount, there is no need for us to do so. It has been reported that the cs trans mount is taller than the oem mount and that it causes unwanted vibration. They use very stiff, low quality urethane (which we have confirmed).

    Our trans insert keeps the oem mount at the stock height and prevents sagging and unwanted movement. We use high quality polyurethane. It is 80A hardness which is stiffer than the stock rubber but not too stiff. It is intended to significantly enhance the performance of the oem mount and prevent premature failure.
