Anyone installed the Prothane subframe bushing insert kit

Hi Guy's, just looking for info from anyone who has installed the prothane subframe bushing insert kit. I have searched through some threads but haven't found much in regard to this brand. Does anyone know if they fit straight in or do they require modification or other parts need modding to make them fit properly as they do look different than the pedders kit etc. Any help appreciated.

I have the whole prothane kit, every single bushing in the car has been changed. Car feels more stable, but of course you will get more road noise. Great mod.

Dont know how install went cause i didnt do the install, but shouldnt be any different from the other bushing companies.

Only reason I'm checking is that I did see 1 post somewhere that said that the inserts were cheap but needed modifying to make them fit properly & was a pain to install compared to the more expensive insert kits. Just don't want any surprises halfway through install with subframe hangin down as is my daily driver.

We installed them on a 2011 SS a couple weeks ago. They went in just fine and did not require and modification. Prothane makes good bushings at a fraction of the cost of others. I would definitely recommend them. We are still in the process of getting their products loaded on our website, but if you call, PM or email me, we can definitely get you a good price on them. Let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards,

Tyler

Hey Tyler, thanks for that, just what I was hoping to here as I was only visually comparing them off the internet & they look slightly different to other makes in pic's
