A mechanic that I trust told me 380 for the job, will have him do the diff fluid at the same time. Might even have him flush the brake fluid with the stuff I have.

Project import in Orange CA! they've done tons of diff bushing swaps for vq chassis. Don't believe what they tell you about aftermarket poly bushings melt that's BS! the only one that melts are the oem bushings cuz they are fluid filled gel that fails all the time.

Props for truly amazing under the car video. Only time will tell if the epoxy will hold up, but damn fine out-of-the-box thinking, Frank. For comparison, it took my mechanic nearly half a day hacking at the main OEM mount to remove and replace. It's a messy, frustrating job.

You should go ahead and replace the two side bushings since you have them. I suspect those little guys actually introduce the more noticeable change, because while the main mount holds the lion's share of weight, it's the side mounts that take on the most compression abuse.

"Zed one"... Canadians, LOL

Thanks Rochester.
I will have a closer look at the side bushings in the spring.

When I was writing the script I thought about saying is the other way (Zee one) but had to stay true to my roots, so "Zed one" it is

Did you clean the diff cover? Mine is still dirty which makes me think my mechanic didn't. After spending $580, I wish I had done it myself.
