| | It's like I got a new car! LTs & MMs FTW!!
Well, what was supposed to have taken Friday evening & Saturday to complete ended up taking till 6pm today to finish. After some trouble removing the exhaust combined with trouble installing the new motor mounts, we really didn't get into a good rhythm until this morning.
So over the past couple of days we swapped in a new set of CS motor mounts (thanks Max & Kristie!), installed 1 3/4" Pacesetter LTs with offroad extensions, new plugs & wires, changed the oil, then headed to the back to install a driveshaft cause I thought & was told mine may be bad & causing all the clunking I was getting.
We got back there & much to our amazement discovered that it was not my shaft. Instead, all three bolts holding the diff were loose. It has been nearly a year since I put my CS diff bushing in and it appears they were never tight! I don't know how that could have happened but it did. So, we took the bolts out, dropped the diff down some & then installed the diff block I had left out before cause I thought that was affecting us not getting the diff back in.
After all was said and done, I am now running LTs, into the factory exhaust thru the resonator, then out muffler-deleted tails. It actually sounds great, but I am still gonna do an x-pipe and (loud-ish) mufflers. Gotta get the exhaust cut and the tips put back where I want them but other than that I love it! And after the diff tightening and new mounts, the car feels so much tighter. It actually feels like it should with a literal zero amount of clunking. I can finally drive my V like I've wanted to from the first moment behind the wheel.
