Are these like the Whiteline ones and just fit over the OEM bushes?

Yes, they are also inserts that fill the gaps of the OEM bushings.

Wow! I wish I bought and installed these earlier. So much more traction off-the-line, especially in wet weather. Throttle-induced oversteer is also now more predictable/easier to catch. A must-have mod in my opinion.
That really is a heck of a lot to attribute to a couple of stiffer diff casing mounts.

I'm surprised also, but it is what it is I didn't have any high expectations prior to install, but the difference was evident since driving it after install.

Where I live, it rains A LOT, so I know how easy it is to break traction in the wet after daily driving this car for 8 years/150,000km. The amount of traction the car has now simply was not there prior to these bushing inserts.

I can also confirm. I had the Whiteline version and could immediately tell the difference once I took them off. There is an appreciable delay between throttle application and the torque deployment to the wheels. I miss them. NVH increase was minimal as well

Car is in full winter mode. I really tortured the rear tires last winter. They were brand new at the start of the season and they have about 6-7/32 left

Did a little bit of undercoating with fluid film black.

Had a friend help me sort out the wiring for the lighting of the new gauge cluster face. And by "help me" I mean he did the whole thing lol. I am completely useless when it comes to electrics. But now I can see what the needles are pointing to at night!

Drove it up to the mountains to go hiking. Gave up halfway up the mountain and got sub sandwiches instead.

I need to order new brakes, probably gonna go for Winmax W3s and some centric blank rotors. Gonna change oil tomorrow as well most likely.

I spent some time in GA... I faintly remember a "mountain" called, "stone mountain" - are there bigger mountains?

Stone Mountain is not really a mountain but a quartz monadnock near Atlanta. Basically a stand alone quartz outcropping, just happens to be very big (and now controversial because of the carving of Confederate leaders on its face)

The Southern end of the Appalachian Mountains is in extreme North Georgia, and the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail. It's also a short drive from Atlanta to the mountains of NC (including Dragon's Tail)
