    Differential bushing?

    Hey I was wondering what kind of differential bushing you guys use? I am from US and we do not have very many firm polyurethane diff bushings here, actually just one that I know of and it is not that great.

    The Nismo ones are sold out here and they are pretty pricey on RHDJapan.com. I am not looking for solid bushings as I will be driving my car in the street as well.

    Post up the brand, your opinion on the product based on your experience with it, longevity of the product, website to purchase the product, etc..

    thanks guys

    Differential bushing?

    From the us try energy suspension dude, have some of their bushes and they are top notch.
    Quite a few guys use them.
    Go for the black ones as they are self lubricating
    This is the page for our cars iirc http://www.energysuspensionparts.com...san+240SX+1998

    And the diff bushes are here http://www.energysuspensionparts.com...?prod=7%2E1118

    With the aftermarket poly bushes like energy, and probably all others, you have to retain a few parts of the old bush, like some of the metal parts. Don't do what I did with my subframe and remove the lot before looking at exactly how to fit them. The diff is the same so watch out.

    I haven't fitted my energy suspension bushes yet but i hear they are very good

    In what way are they not good mate?? Just ask as I was gonna go for their full kit as quite a few people use them and have been very happy with them?
    If you have the cash go superpro then as they are top notch, my mechanic uses them on his g35 team falken drift car and properly rates them
