Should I use POLY or DELRIN for my diff bushing?
We have this diff bushing available in 80a (soft poly), 95a (hard poly) and fulll on delrin. The stock front diff bushings are meant for comfort. It's meant to be quiet, so BMW allows for little bit of movement for the sake of comfort. However this design can fail under normal street use (and age) let alone any kind of performance driving. So we have the perfect solution. 80a soft poly is for that OEM + feel. That means you want a subtle upgrade for your street car without to much of a compromise in comfort, these are a happy medium. 80a are designed for the street enthusiast. 95a is great for dual purpose aggressive street and track applications. Delrin bushings are generally best for race application only.
