Just saw your post about being a 6-speed...........OK, you need this as one of the things to protect your suspension, rear, and axles, from the dreaded "wheel hop", but only if you are going to drive the car as it was meant to be.Mine is a 6 speed. I just figured now might be a good time to change them and be done with it.
Did you happen to watch how Petty's shop removed the bushings? How does Arrington do it? OK if you don't want to give up any "trade secrets". Can you tell the interested members what Arrington charges for bushings and installation? Thanks.I had Petty's Garage change mine out and there is NO wheel hop! My car feels more solid. if you can afford it I would do it! We can also do it at Arrington and save you some dough.

No problem. Both shops do great work and you can't go wrong with either one. Petty is a little more expensive but you are also kinda paying for a name to work on your car and who knows you could run into the King himself and get him to sign your car. At Arrington there is all the technology and the latest upgrades from Dodge but both shop do excellent work. Arrington and Petty are in a partnership as far as Arrington doing all the tunes supercharger and fuel upgrades for Petty's cars. As far as the cradle bushings go you will be happy that you did it when you can launch your car the way you want to and the way a Challenger should!Thanks very much Venom Bee for your Information. This topic is one which is often discussed on this forum. It is extremely helpful to the members here, that the cradle bushing issue is at the heart of the resolution for the elimination of "wheel hop". The Petty Organization was the first to guide me (back in '09) to this reality. In the case of my '09, more was necessary, but a great start. As production years moved forward, Dodge made changes which helped, but apparently did not cure it totally. Your (Arrington association) along with The Petty Organization's recommendations should allow the forum members to make informed, accurate suspension decisions in relation to this situation. Thanks for the expertise.
