Took it for a spin and NVH-wise I can't even tell anything is different than stock, but high rpm shifts are precise as before. This is how it's supposed to feel.

Sweet! I'll have to trim mine once I get the time to Jack the car up again.

To be honest the vibration is not bad at all. I feel people who complain about it are a bit on the picky side but it's your car and you are entitled to that view point.

I defiantly noticed some vibs but nothing crazy. It's obvious why the void was there in the first place to increase driving comfort and lesson vibrations. When you start modifying the car these are some of the to be expected items to anticipate. Especially if you are putting a hunk of rubber in an area by design is not supposed to have anything there.

I like the vibs, because race car!!

I agree Danny it's not bad at all in my car but if I can cut just the end off and it gets rid of it but still does its job why not lol

Then we definitely did not have the same experience. The sound and feel inside my car was pretty outrageous, to the point I had two people ask, unprompted, what was wrong with it.

Now that I trimmed an unnecessary 3/8" of material off the bushing, it works as designed and the "vibs" are minimal.

Interesting... I wonder how we could have such a drastic difference. Maybe some variations in the construction of the bushing during manufacturing...

I agree there is a noticeable change in NVH, but I haven't been locked out of 3rd on a corner exit since installing it. It plain and simple works!
