Hendrix Poly offset bushings with LPW diff cover

Anyone here using these offset bushings on LPW diff covers without problems?
I'm asking before I attempt installing them. I know LPW suggest energy suspension poly bushings.

Thanks

You should be able to use them without issue. The important part is using the offset bushings if you aren't at stock ride height so that you maintain suspension geometry keeping the axle cages lined up with the hubs so they don't bind and break on hard launch.

I'm lowered 1" all around so that was the purpose of these bushing but I was not to sure if they were compatible with the LPW cover but I learned today that they are.

Thanks

Just use a urethane safe grease on the sides of the bushings where they fit into their spots in the rear subframe. Not sure if that's a common thing but the diff would not go home on my first try without some lube. I used napa sil glyde.
