So far all this suspension has been worth EVERY penny! Plus after shopping around for days and days it was by far the best bang for the buck in suspension (and not just by a little bit). I have also had to use BMR's customer service on an issue with my 1.4" springs and it was great, second to none.
Always glad to hear we are doing our job!

Just took her out for a test drive the BMR bushing install and the video shows that there is still some movement under hard acceleration and shifting. I will need to do before and after videos to show the difference. There is an improvement, I'm guessing that you need to spend the $700 if you want it completely gone. The bushing looks like jello when it does move, probably should have been a little harder. I will post the video after editing it.

Rear BMR cradle bushings edited video.

Some of the movement is eliminated, not 100%!

There's also a video of the differential and you can look at my older suspension videos to see the difference.

Spend $700 bucks on what?

The Pfhadt bushings are $690 and are solid aluminum and shouldn't move a bit. The BMR bushings felt really soft to me and they do give a little, not as much as the stock rubber bushings in the cradle. I guess they are worth the price I paid for them.

Are those the inserts or the full bushing (not sure if BMR sells a full bushing)?

I watched your video of the stock bushing, and like you said it does show a great improvement, but not all movement is gone.

I have felt the rear-end steer with my stock bushings, so this is next on my list of mods. Still on the fence if I should do the full bushing or the inserts.

Those are the BMR full PRO cradle bushings and the full differential bushing kit.

Wow, thanks. I'm guessing the inserts would show even more movement. Hmmmm.....

The BMR Pro full bushings do better than the Street inserts.
