    That shifter looks the same as the ebay ones, except the cup is black instead of blue/red. I haven't gotten much life out of them, but I hope your experience is different.

      Nice updates! How do you like the Garagistic brake lines?

        The brake lines are great. My only complaint is I couldn't get the ones above the rear subframe. Aside from that, they were easy to install. Sent from my Moto Z3 Play using Tapatalk

            I finally got motivated enough to do the diff swap after giving Ruby a good long wash and wax. Also, the 4.27LSD juuust started making a quiet sound, so that really motivated me to swap and not break the 4.27. I gotta say, I'm not really a fan of the diff stud kit after installing the 4.1LSD. instead of just raising it up and bolting it to the driveshaft, and then doing the bolts from the top of the subframe, now you get EIGHT bolts you have to work with. I ended up angling the rear of the driveshaft as much as I could, got the diff *just barely* on the driveshaft bolts, and then raising the diff and studs into position. It took about 6 hours worth of work because I'm retarded and didn't want to restart any time I got stuck after making a hair of progress. DON'T BE AFRAID TO RESTART BECAUSE YOU WERE DOING IT WRONG ANYWAYS! But yeah, test drive to the dog park was a success, and Ruby even makes less noise when driving now!

              how are those new treehouse bushings? I have mine installed, but I haven't had a chance to drive on it. Did you notice a difference?

                I haven't done the control arms and bushings yet. I'm gonna wait until the engine is pulled during the swap to do those since it will be much easier to access things then. That said, I can't wait to see the difference! Sent from my Moto Z3 Play using Tapatalk

                  After a few days of driving it around town and getting up to highway speeds, I can say there's definitely a reason the M42s came with the higher ratio lol. It's not bad, but definitely feels a bit more chilled out when going from a start. On a couple positive notes, my RPMs at 75mph went from 4k to 3800, and I don't have to shift to second almost immediately after starting from a stop. I feel more mellow with this new diff lol. That 4.27 was just a bad influence on my driving habits.

                    I got my inspection done today, and realized it's about damn time I change the air filter. Since it always takes me a long time to do anything, I ran a stopwatch and it took a whopping minute 15 second. Could have been sub minute if I didn't forget about one of the clips. Hard day wrenching over here! Sent from my Moto Z3 Play using Tapatalk
