Offset diff bushings

So I'm doing rear suspension mods to get ready for the new power from my turbo kit. So far I've peiced together
Prothane cradle bushings, and BMR poly diff bushings , BMR toe rods non adjustable with poly bushings, I'll prob get the same for the trailing arms. My question is do I need the offset diff bushings? My car is lowered with BMR 1.4 inch lowering springs. It's a street car and i will run drag radials for the track. Thanks.

I’d say yes if you’re running that kinda power it’ll help with drive line angles on you axle shafts.
Your axle shafts will be the weak point unless you get some bullet proof ones from DSS, Strange, or 1320 Engineerring.

Yes takes a little stress away from your drive train when launching

I did for my ZL1 conversion, since my car is lowered on coilovers. It helped with the halfshaft or axle angles.

They transfer driveline noise (clunks etc.) I've had them for a couple of years now. Had to install them as my axle kept popping out while road racing. These solved that issue for me.

I think it's a fair trade off.

They are made with two different materials, Polyurethane or Delrin. The Delrin bushings are harder and transmit more noise and vibration.
