What low range ratio are you getting in the dual range box?
The gearbox is 1.44 low.

The urethane bushings I put in are all Whiteline. It is quite noticeably harsher of a ride, even my friends mentioned the same as they've been in my car before and after the bushing install. I replaced all the bushings as I've been chasing this odd "rear end slight wig wag" issue for a couple years now. It's getting better the more stuff I replace, but feels as though the rear end is "lose" from the body. Hard to explain.
