The ZL1 lower control arms are compatible with both FE3 and FE4/5 suspensions. The only thing you need to change after that are the sways and endlinks (both sways so they remain matched)

It's a steady whine and gets louder the faster you go. After driving to Utah and back, I've gotten used to it. The big issue is that you can't really undo that mod without replacing the entire diff.

From the looks of your picture it's too late for my comment: avoid the diff bushings unless you like the noise. It's the one "upgrade" I regret when on the highway.

I would hate to give bad advice because I've never had to fix it before. I default to some more qualified than me.

Note: they are only a cheaper option if you buy used/take-offs. New OEM springs are actually more expensive than BMR lowering springs (~$280 for all 4 corners).

I did a few other mods at the same time (trailing arms, solid subframe bushings, & springs) so I couldn't really say for sure. Ride is stiffer, but still smooth.

I know it's not an apples to apples comparison (Pfadt sport sways, 3-way rear, non-adjustible front), but I have my rears set to stiffest. I prefer having oversteer.
