    DEFIV Differential Lock-Down DIY

    Note: Not responsible for any damage to you or your car,
    this worked on my car so will work on yours. Thi kit as been tested over and over countless hours by
    Rick@DEFIV. If it doesnt fit you did something wrong.

    ***This tutorial assumes you know how to get your car secured on jack
    stands, if in doubt do NOT attempt this DIY!

    Suggestions:

    Do NOT use a torch to remove bushings, it is not needed and can deform subframe amd make install of bushing
    appear off...they are with in .001" tolerance. They fit PERFECTLY.

    Notes:

    *I assume you know how to take exhaust, panels ect off.
    **The design off this product is the copyrighted by Rick@DEFIV.
    ***You can use a hole saw to pull out bushings instead of pipe if needed.

    Here is the work of art, this kit really impressed me with how close everything fit....I can't imagine the testing
    involved to get this to spec. Rick Has some of the best customer service in this bussiness period!

    I appreciate that man!! Honestly not as long as ypou think, gettingn the differential out, easily 1 hour, attaching hardaware to housing amd getting bushings out 1 hour & putting all other bushings in and installing differential maybe 1 1/2 hours. I would say depending how smoothly it went 2 1/2 - 4 hours.

    That's awesome. My access to a lift for DIY time is pretty much limited to 4 hours on saturday mornings. This defintely looks like something i'll be doing soon.

    Your DIY's are so awesome I can't rep you enough for them.
    But, they are not spread out enough, so I get the must spread rep warning.
    Will make up for that later...
