So how long did it take to get the rear end pulled out like that. Want to do a full on suspension in mine might take me a while to get all the parts together though and only wanna do it once.

Takes about 20-30 minutes to get it down if you have a lift, a bit longer on the floor.

It can be done pretty quick on the floor. Getting the old subframe bushes out can be a bit of work though.

Looks worse than it is, its no harder than removing and replacing a live axle. Little bit easier IMHO.

Id say max 1hr 30 min to get it out including jacking and tool gathering. Took me longer on exhaust than anything. Once out looking at 1hr 30 for bushing removal depending on tools available. 10-15 min to put bushings in and another 1hr 30 to get it all back together and on the ground ready. So3-4 hrs total. Easy to be patient on and there is really nothing that is a booger other getting bushings out!

Very nice. That should help get that power to the pavement a little more efficiently.

We have these:



This is an important bushing to upgrade as it is responsible for keeping the spindle vertical under load. When we first got our test car a few years back we set up 2 GoPro cams under the car to see what the suspension was doing. Under hard acceleration, the spindle counter-rotates excessively due to bushing deflection in the upper control arm. It does the same thing during braking. We made this one of our first products after seeing this and the BK017 shown below does a great job of minimizing this deflection.
