If you can deal with a slight vibration at idle only I highly recommend getting all of the mounts... but at least the lower torque mount.

Also glad to hear that i'm not the only one with poly mounts that gets a crazy vibration when you turn the A/C on.
Replacing all of what bushings costs $120?





I installed my stock dogbone with poly inserts yesterday. Car feels much tighter now shifting. I also have a sts and bullet shifter mounts.

replacement of bushings in your stock dog bone is less than $30. You can do it at home if you have a vice. There are two 13mm bolts that hold the dogbone in. Soak them down with PB blaster and break them loose. Unfortunately, mine were stripped. A shop charged $50 to do it for me with the stripped bolt...probably worth it.

Replacement of 'all bushings' in suspension....$200 for bushings and close to $400-$500+ in labor. Everything has to be disassembled and you will need a 12ton press...a good 12 ton press.

Will massive speed bushing replacements for the 07 work for the 08 model too? I figure they're both duratec so it should work but it doesn't include the 08. Any thoughts or knowledge?
