14 months and 4 days since I posted and it was installed before that Ron.
Time sure flys for you old guys!
Actually absolutely no drawbacks to this mod that I have observed.
I've got three sets in the claret, but the one I wrote about makes the most differance!
My poly anti-sway bar bushings squeak on my back road, (I need to grease them)
YOU know that road, the REAL bumpy, winding, one,,,,, the one with the cliff on the 90, 300' above the Potomac!

Re: Fifteen minute, $15.00 rear suspension mod.

So I just finished this mod and it was very easy to do. It also made a noticeable difference in ride quality.

And less thumps from the rear suspension while accelerating.

Re: Fifteen minute, $15.00 rear suspension mod.

Now I just need to replace the sway bar bushings in the front because it's making a clunking sound over bumps.

You should replace those with poly ones.

Re: Fifteen minute, $15.00 rear suspension mod.

I've installed these and it works well. But I believe we need to add them above the cross member too because the weight is mostly resting on the top part.

I have had three sets on my Claret since I did my first set, to stiffen up the subframe to car mounts.
I could only feel the differance the first set makes.

Talking Re: Fifteen minute, $15.00 rear suspension mod.

I decided not to take pics since there are already some on here. But it's all true it's inexpensiveeasy to install ( 15 min ) and does make a good change in ride quality.

bump agreed need part # for shucks or napa here in Orygun.

Oops ran a search found that the part # is the same at either advance or autozone and we have the latter her. This should answer your question Johnybeas, it's #31000.
