First I would like to thank the guys over at iND for great customer service and quality work. Andrew and Jesel were great. Andrew worked with me over many emails and calls getting everything ready. So over Easter weekend I had iND install TMS solid sub frame bushings, Delrin diff bushings, KW sleeve kit (I wanted to keep my EDC), Dinan camber plates, Dinan rear shock mounts, H&R sway bars and a slew of other cosmetic upgrades as well. So there is definitely more cabin noise associated with the Delrin diff bushings but it is not to bad. I drove back from iND (4 hr drive) with the radio off to compare the noise level. There is diff wine as speed and rpms increase but it tappers off around 80mph. It is my DD and I have actually grown to like it. It is not to intrusive. The car feels much more planted and the rear end feels much better. The car is more flat in the curves due to the stiffer springs. It feels like it should have come from the factory. I will keep everyone updated as I continue to evaluate the upgrade.

Thanks for sharing! That's the exact setup I want to go with. Maybe I missed it, but which brand diff bushing did you go with?

Average is about 8-12 hours for both sets of bushings.

Installs vary but expect to not have your car for two days. Labor rates vary wildly. Stealerships charge about $200 an hour where as some Indy shops charge as low a $70. It is worth the money especially if you plan on keeping your car for a while.
