Default Shortened Dogbones

I was thinking about pick up some shortened dogbones and I was wondering if they would reduce engine flex?

They are mainly for lowered cars. It just pulls the rear tail shaft of the trans up a bit to put the axles closer to the angle they were stock.

If you want less engine flex, try some poly inserts for your dogbones.

Alright, that makes sense. Could you point me in the right direction for new poly mounts? :P

Look in 3800 under suspension. I've seen them and heard from others that they are a large improvement over stock.
