The Problem

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.

The Solution

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.

The Bushings

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

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.
