Thoroughly impressed with the change.
-Noticeable improvement in axle articulation
-Driveline judder is gone (when disengaging the clutch under load)
-More smootherer

Yes. Hybrid is the way to go.

Rest rubber, good, curious how 'hybrid' trailing arms would do on your 240. I'm happy with them but came from worn out aftermarket rubber. So no fair comparison.
