Hi all, just wondering if anyone has any tips for replacing the Diff mounting bushes without taking the rear end out of the car. I have heard it can be done. Thanks in advance.

Best of my knowlege, Diff cradle out of the car. Have helped do it on a BA and can't really see how to do it with diff and cradle in the car.

I doubt it by memory the reason it needs to drop is the bolts need to be pulled out and the fuel tank is in the way :!: The annoying thing is the diff would need to come out to get the fuel tank out.

We tried it on some of the control arms but ended up dropping the whole cradle its a hell of easier to work on.

+2 on the cradle out, i did hear of some dodgy antics done cutting holes in the spare wheel well for the center mount. not sure how they done any others.
my advice if you cant drop the cradle yourself Pay the $$$ and get it done properly.
