Whiteline transmission bushing and Perrin shifter bushing review.

I installed these on Nov 25th, so I've had a little bit of time to get a feel for the changes to the car since install.

Install: Very easy for both pieces because I was using a lift. The transmission mount would have been ok using stands but the shifter bushing required some force to remove and replace and being on your back might make it a struggle.

Transmission bushing review: This piece is fantastic. The feel of the car changes immediately after it is installed. Gone is any slop in the transmission especially from same gear power on/of/on situations that used to jerk/bounce the driveline assembly. Because of the position of the mount, and what it's attached to I do notice a tiny bit of vibration when the car is under power. The best way to explain this is that you feel more connected to the motor/trans so when you are revving you can slightly feel it in your seat. It really adds a tiny bit of rawness to the car that it didn't have before. At higher RPM this feeling is increased a bit more and those who haven't driven with poly mounts before might be a bit unnerved as the vibration increases from 5500-7000 RPM. I love it, others might find it too raw.

Shifter bushing review: Can't feel any change. There might be a small change, and maybe if I just installed it w/o the transmission bushing it would be noticeable, but until the car has 75K on it and the OEM bushing is worn, I don't see any point in changing this out.
