Save Your Axles - Lower your 60'

Hendrix Engineering Offset Differential Bushing



If you take a glance around the rear differential, its hard not to notice the positioning of the axles. Upon inspection, you will clearly see they run up toward the outer wheel hub at an angle. As the car is lowered, the angle gets even worse. When the car squats during acceleration, this too will increase the angle, moving the axles into an even worse position. This reduces the overall strength, durability, and longevity of the axles. It also takes power away from the rear wheels. The first thing we do with all our record cars is move the differential up to help counteract the angle. These bushings are designed to do just that.

Whether you're coming out of a corner or launching at the dragstrip, these bushings are a must. They are cost effective and easy to install. You cant go wrong with our new Offset Differential Bushings.

- All but eliminates wheel hop.
- Greatly increases the holding power of any axles; stock or aftermarket.
- Puts more power to the ground which will in turn lower your 60 ft time
- Increases the longevity of your CV joints

Got your PM, thanks. So what are these made out of? Almost looks by the picture like they are machined based on the grooves. What about NVH? Any installation instructions available? I would probably have my buddy's shop do it for me, and I don't want him guessing as to their orientation.

They are made out of delrin.NVH is subjective,the 2004-2006 Gto diff bolted solid to the x member without issues.I would put a square of hushmatt under the rear seat if I was concerned .As far as instructions you take the old out and stick the new in,of coarse with the hole allowing the greatest upward change to the diff.I'll be glad to walk your buddy through it

Here's the prototypes installed, to clarify any questions on installation. The first pic shows how to align the dots in a vertical orientation to align them. The other two pics show my SS diff installed with the bushings, and my ZL1 diff installed with the bushings. You can then see how much it is tucked up into the cradle. Where the bushings sit in the front of the differential with the SS diff, there are a couple bulges in the cradle that have to be "massaged" out of the way, other than that it will bolt straight in. With the ZL1 diff, there is a little more work involved, but worth it for sure.

They definitely help with wheelhop, and keeping the axles at a better angle. Definitely would recommend contacting H-E and getting a set to anyone who is concerned about axle life and maximizing traction! You can see that they work with the ZL1 diff, I have the DS and axles from H-E as well, it all works really good together.

What's the best way to "massage" those bulges? Beat it mercilessly with a hammer?
