    After a discussion on the drop links thread
    https://zroadster.org/threads/rear-drop-links.5560/

    I dropped into my local stealer this morning and got prices of a back plate with bush installed

    Bush - - - - £81.8
    Gasket - - £2.88
    Plus vat
    Looks like the best way to go.
    Definitely the simplest
    One question

    My diff isn't the quietest not loud just an ratting whine, as I will be taking the back plate off, I will fill up with diff oil.
    What oil should I put in to help the whine or is there an additives I can use?
