Update on post-install of massive Polly dog bone bushings.
First off the shifting now feels so much better! I love it.
Second, I no longer hear a bad vibration/ slipping/ grinding noise through first and second gear which I though was the axle and bearing. I even bought them ready to replace. Now I'm wondering if its even needed.
And lastly, the only negative about my new dog bone bushings is the vibration in reverse and in first at low rpm's. a lot more vibration than I would like but the payoff in the other ways is worth it.
