The powerflex bushings will be stiffer than the stock ones too. You did overall stiffen the car quite a bit...
Install work is good, all new mounts. I'm not getting any rattles.. .just harsh

Maybe everything contributed a little huh.

I'll check the struts next time i have a chance... I'd hope they aren't leaking yet!

The rears seem harsher than the fronts, I don't have much weight in the car and the tires are set a few pounds less than factory recommended psi at the rear

Maybe I just need to go back to stock... I like the handling but 3 hours in the car each day is tough if you're counting cracks.
