Maybe 1-1/2 to 2. Just for the 4 cradle bushings.. Thats my opinion.

All is finished and the ride is really nice! I love it. It's a little stiffer on bumps but overall it's an awesome solid feel. An exceptional upgrade.

Thank you Auto Adrenaline for the quick install!

dmax, what mad you go with the inserts and not the full bushing, if it is price I understand but if there was some other factor I'd like to know. It is one of the things I have been contemplating for the cradle. The other thing is understanding of the full bushings raise the rear of the car like the inserts apparently do, I have read the inserts raise the rear about a half cm or so.

The street kit comes with them. My guess is comfort and less vibration. As far as the rear insert... This is the first time I heard of the bushings raising the rear. But now I am interested to find out.

Niether the BMR cradle bushings or inserts will raise the car any higher that it was with the stock cradle bushings. You can use either without any worries of the ride height changing.
