I haven't. It was meant as passive aggressive comment on my behalf, because of another thread. ;-)

Good to hear. I was thinking that if your car gets the SF torn with all that you have, the rest of us are doomed.

Lol yep. I'm gonna do all poly while I'm in there. I have most everything but the subframe bushings. Gonna run 80a for the diff, 95a for Rtabs, 95a or alum for subframe.

I use aluminum subframe bushings, with 95 a differential bushings. That's perfect, but that's in my E36. The E 46 differential doesn't like the harder differential bushings if it's not 100% healthy. You'll get a little more m klunk the harder you go with differential bushings. My new E 46 is getting aluminum subframe with 95A differential… But I'm also going to make the jump to a mechanical LSD. I also used to run 75D subframe bushings with 75D differential bushings also… It was very harsh so I replaced the differential ears with OEM and that really eased everything up to a good street feel, but I did still have some m klunk
