Solid Aluminum Diff Bushing

Does anyone make/ fab solid rear diff mounts to eliminate wheel hop with our IRS?

theres solid bushings for cobras, but you would have to solidify the rear mount on your own. Neither will prevent wheel hop though.

They may not prevent, but as long as they cut down on it I'd be happy! The less strain on my halfies the better!

Solid mounting the diff will not cure wheel hop. Delrin bushings do.

Do people get wheel hop problems with a the OEM bushings when they are in good shape? I know neither my 94 T'Bird, 95 Cougar, or 97 LSC has never had wheel hop problems. With or without poly bushings.

Traction yes, but no wheel hop.

Where can you get Delrin bushings at? Does anyone even make a delrin bushing kit?

Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber and dumber every year?

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5.
I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

Oh, I just did a quick search, I should have look closer. Sorry.

It's more of a problem for manual cars, which i believe he is switching to
