Can you tell us where to get the enduro cover for that price?
I really want one

fastedddy Just saying the bolts are a pain with the gforce mount as well
Iwant to know where to get the enduro cover

BigBoysToy I had bad wheel hop, bought bags and this new diff bracket.
Was gunna put both in at same time, however the bags were too small (invoice and packing slip had correct part number). Never opened shipping box until ready to use (dumb of me). Was disappointed, but still installed new diff bracket, trans and motor mounts. Took it for a ride, NO WHEEL HOP! I am not saying that this cures wheel hop guaranteed. I am just sharing "I have no wheel hop now". Based on this the bags will be returned, "my wheel hop is gone so I am not gunna use them seeing as how I achieved my goal.

LFSADRG Installed the Harrop and the inner bolts that attach the bracket to the body are a pain to get in and tighten. If I place my current traditional Harrop cover for sale and get the stock mounting Harrop cover and the GForce mount, anyone interested?

Rich-Tripower My Harrop came with grade 10.8 hardware. I would assume that to actually shear off the bolts on a Harrop you'd either have to have loose bolts, been driving through horrible wheel hop repeatedly or have installed something incorrect or some combination of the above. I'd think the bracket would break long before the bolts would shear when it is properly installed.

Langdonious Rex The cover itself is a lovely piece and I'm sure you could source stronger hardware for it but after spending that kind of coin (I got mine for like $425 brand new ~ 2009) it was not very confidence inspiring from the beginning. The GForce mount is quite stout and ready to party and the OEM diff cover is plenty sufficient at serving its purpose.

Cost wise, if you were going to use that cover AND the GForce mount, you might as well go with the full blown Harrop cover which provides a wider support base at a lower cost.

$684 vs. $650.

I used red Loctite on the 4 body mount bolts.

Just installed this and really enjoy a tight rear end.

lynmup Hind sight is 20/20. Had I only known, I'd have saved the extra money I spent on the Harrop cover and went with this.

Well, at least it looks good under there with the new axles and toe rods!

All the feedback we have gotten is from aggressive street driving, and feedback was great. Firmer stiffer feel in the rear which is exactly what it's supposed to do.

We have black ones going to powdercoat today, if you want one I'd call and get it on order 316-260-8433.

Were selling these mounts as fast we can make them. Were on the 2nd batch of 20 now..

Thanks

It's laser cut from 3/16" and 3/8" thick steel so I'm sure it can take it.
The oem mount was not nearly as thick of steel

This. I jacked up one of my previous GTO's by the OEM mount and ended up deforming the steel mount. Have been using the lip of the differential ever since.

Yours is a good looking piece though, and the price point is nice too.

Yep I remember those threads
