B8 A4/A5/S4/S5/RS5 With 0B5/0B6/0BK DSG/Auto Driveshaft Center Support Bearing Carrier Upgrade
$249.99 – $279.99
Holds the driveshaft where it should be. Isolation dampers minimize vibrations.
Supplier: JXB Performance
The stock center support bearing carrier holds the driveshaft in place with rubber so thin about 20 lbs of force moves it from center to the end of its travel. While that’s great for making sure no NVH makes it to the cabin, the stock bushing is extremely prone to failure, especially in harsher climates and on higher-powered cars. When the bushing lets go, it leads to excessive vibrations and clunking which can damage the transmission and rear diff. To make matters worse, the stock carrier is molded onto the non-serviceable center support bearing, leading to costly driveshaft replacement.
This upgraded unit keeps the driveshaft firmly in place at all times, and its polyurethane construction ensures it will never wear out. The thick bushings ensure the driveshaft cannot move from center, maintaining driveshaft alignment at all times.
Two options are available for the bushings, both of which are many times over better than the stock bushings.
The street bushings absorb most of the NVH from the drivetrain. Expect some light NVH at some speeds in the form of a soft hum. With a modified exhaust or windows down you’ll probably never hear it.
The track bushings are for those who want no-compromise drivetrain performance. These will create a substantial amount of cabin noise. Not sure which is for you? Try them both, they’re interchangeable!
Installation doesn’t require the removal of the driveshaft. The 2-part design clamps around the nearly unserviceable OEM bearing. The old carrier must be removed, so a cutting tool is required.

034MOTORSPORT FRONT STRUT BRACE, B8 AUDI A4/S4, ALLROAD, BILLET ALUMINUM
034Motorsport is proud to offer our Billet Aluminum Front Strut Brace for the B8 Audi A4/S4 & Allroad! These Audi models do not come with a strut brace from the factory, allowing for lateral deflection of the strut towers and chassis flex under hard cornering. While the B8 chassis comes from the factory with a support bar located behind the fire wall, this component is not significantly structural to the chassis and allows strut tower deflection. This deflection can be observed as imprecise steering input and a vague, disconnected feeling from the front end due to undesired suspension geometry changes.
The 034Motorsport Strut Brace incorporates an extremely rigid billet aluminum center section that attaches to both strut towers and to the firewall in two locations, improving the vehicle’s steering feel and handling performance. This robust chassis reinforcement is machined from 6061-T6 billet aluminum, and engineered to be a comprehensive upgrade by limiting lateral strut tower deflection and maintaining proper suspension geometry under heavy cornering. The end result is a significantly more rigid front end that provides precise, consistent feedback through the steering wheel and ensures that you enjoy a more connected driving experience.
This strut brace was thoroughly tested by 034Motorsport on in-house B8 and B8.5 Audi S4 Development Vehicles before release.
