Rearend bushings 97 XR7

I just got my car back from the shop and it looks like I need a set of rear differential bushings for the front of the hog head.

Dose any one know what they are called and what the energy suspension part number might be?

Also they told me they would charge $100.00 to install them Fair? Unfair?

I'd look for 99 cobra IRS diff bushings. If all else fails look at supercoupeperformance.com diff bushings and see how easy they are to do on your own. If you wanna get ripped off 100 bucks sounds about right. Other wise you can do it yourself in a few minutes.

Most likely they are some thing I can do... I just have been out of fix it mode for a couple of months.

If I'm correct I'm looking for "Differential Carrier Bushings"?

I found out Energy Suspension makes Part 4.1126G 89-97 MN12 and 99-04 Cobra Differential Carrier Bushings... 29.99 + Tax at Jegs here in town can have them today.

I also found that Ford still makes them Part number F3SZ-4B431B S.O. can have them in 4 or 5 days. at a cost of 16.95...

What do you guys think, I really like the Energy Suspension products myself however would the Ford ones be just as good?

If you like to drive like a grandma ford rubber is fine. If you like to drive like you enjoy the car then ES poly is fine too. And yes you found the right part.

Since I think I'm going to be keeping this car for a couple of years it's only a couple of more bucks for the good ones.

Thanks all!
