Default Diff bushings(not the pinion mounting ones)

Has anyone tried these bushings from figs? They are not the ones that most people replace. I am wondering what these do to the drive ability of the car and if they will increase harshness from being poly if I was to pair them with the poly pinion mount bushings that everyone replaces.

I can't seem to find a review on them anywhere. If anyone knows anything about these at all please let us all know. Thank you in advance.

I had these installed when I put the LSD carrier in.
I used them in conjunction with these:

I have not had many miles on them yet, nor have i had it at the local track, but i can tell that they stiffen the movement of the diff under hard acceleration and deceleration.
It feels more tight but not the least bit harsh, if you were going solid.

All in all I would recommend them.

Thanks for the response and review Jake.

I went ahead and ordered the pinion mounting ones in the link you posted. Im pairing them with the ones I posted in my original post just like you have done. I will report back once everything is installed to shed more light on what they do for the GS.
