posted link so you could read more about the mounts. It is only recomended if you go poly that you only do the dogbone for daily street use or else you would have exessive vibration which is not something you want from a daily driver (thats just an opinion from the fswerks site)

i need to do some things. i have some suspension/steering noises to figure out.
and i also have broken in the poly engine mounts, so its not as bad as they are when they are fresh.

i think i need to replace my sway bushings (front and back)
