Does anyone know how much it costs to replace the diff bushings at the dealership?

Not sure of the price. But uf you can, wait till the UUC bushings come out. Should be much better than stock.

Should be ready in the next few months. Maybe before the new year.
I would pay a dealer to do the work. You need a special tool. Otherwise you need to remove the diff. I think you then bang out the old bushing, or press it out. It would suck to break the casing while your doing this.
I'm not sure, but I think the tool costs about as much as the install.

UUC has got to be the slowest company EVER. These things have been on their way to us for well over a year... Don't hold your breath, but anything is better than the factory bushing, so ya, I hope you CAN hold your breath :bighead:

Ya, you need to remove the diff completely to install the new bushing, so I'd say 7 on the 1-10 difficulty scale.
Here's a writeup on diff install. :2thumbs:

Then you have to be very careful not to break the diff case when removing/installing new bushing.

I've died twice waiting for UUC products to come out. They make great stuff, but just take foreevvvveeerrrr

thanks alot for the link lollygagger. but im not the most mechanically inclined person. however i got some friends who are, maybe they are up to the task.

it looks like i may have to get bushings at the dealership til the uuc ones are out. but the word is it may be awhile :(
