The only thing is the instructions sucked! It was missing a lot off torque specs and it said nothing about a different yoke which was included. You have to use a puller to get it of also. And you have to pull the spindles you can't just swing them out of the way. No modifications needed to fit the diff
Were the differential bushings SS quality or upgraded? I guess buying upgraded bushings would be no problem.

I need to contact DSS about a 1 piece driveshaft. Anybody checked into a one piece driveshaft?

No doubt they have a one piece driveshaft in them.

Diff bushings are much stiffer than the ss ones. I get some gear noise at low speeds. I would not touch them

Thanks for the info! I know where I can save a few bucks on an install. Toe links, quality cradle bushings, and new rear upper control arm bushings with the ZL1 setup and I'm good to go.....for now.

Then I gotta save for a one piece driveshaft and an aftermarket ZR1 upgraded clutch. By then, I have my cold air intake and ported TB. That should get me near 435 RWHP.

I'm guessing the yoke is for the transmission ?

Thanks..... Ohh and the bushings are very hard. Almost as hard as the bmr bushing. The difference is so small I don't think it's worth the change.

What did you use to pull the yoke off? & did you just drive it using the nut? Sorry gotta ask

I used a 2 jaw balancer puller and it came off with ease. Then I used a socket and drove it on. Then the nut gets torqued to 77ft/lbs

The whole job was 3 and a half hours start to finish. But I have a lift. Definitely have someone help you with the center section that thing is heavy(144lbs)
