What rear diff bushings to buy

2012 SS M6 future mods put me in the 450rwhp range. Street driven. I dont want vibration or noise just better bushings since im doing gears. im thinking BMR BK001 street bushings $79shipped but Energy Suspension are $50 shipped. will there be a difference? will I need different bolts or just use the old ones?

We use the Energy Suspension units, I hear Energy makes BMR's as a private label deal. They look identical side by side.
You can reuse your old bolts as they are not TTY. I am using all the Energy bushings in my '10 SS and I think their great, no issues, good ride quality, etc. I have almost 70k on them as well.
After replacing all the bushings, diff, subframe, rear suspension, it eliminated my wheel hop.

They stopped making them a year or more ago. Sucks because they were a good set up.

I don't know if Energy Suspension actually makes the bushings for BMR. I would be very skeptical of that statement since BMR offers three different levels of their diff. bushings (street, pro, race), and Energy Suspension only offers one. Personally, I would go with BMR, just because I trust their stuff and I know for a fact that their customer service is top notch if I were ever to have any problem with them.

But if you want to try Energy Suspension....these seem like quite a good deal:

I'd suggest skipping them all together. The heat from the diff will soften up the urethane and eventually cause slop in the bushing if the car is ran hard. If you are set on getting some, I'd probably go with the Pedders HD bushings.

Best regards,

This information is 100% incorrect. Energy Suspension does not in any, way, shape or form manufacturer our differential bushings for us. Energy Suspension does do some of our other bushings for us like our sway bars and what not but our differential bushings are a different story.

I am not saying that the Energy Suspension differential bushings are good or bad I just want to make sure the correct information is out there for people to find. We do use Energy Suspension in for other bushings so I assume their differential bushings are good quality stuff like their other bushings.
