- car feels much more planted
Its been about 4 days since I installed my JHM Driveshaft carrier bearing insert. I put it through some stress tests with launches and everyday cruising conditions before writing this review, just to be sure.
Anyways, immediately after install the car feels much more planted, The rear end feels more "connected" if that makes sense. Before installing, my carrier was definitely failing because I had the shuddering under the rear seat occasionally under WOT. The shuddering is now completely gone, I tried to replicate it in many ways after the install and I can confirm that its completely gone. During the install, It was hard to get the rope to fit flush in the carrier, because my failing carrier was sagging so I had to physically lift the driveshaft a bit to get the rope to fit flush. Now I'm able to drive with confidence that my driveshaft won't break so thats good.
As for NVH, I have not noticed any. Some people told me to see if i get any around 60mph cruising. I have not. I'm not sure what it is that causes this phenomenon where some people get increased NVH with these carrier upgrades and some people don't. I'm fortunate that I did not gain any noticeable NVH. I will give it more time and see how these hold up, but as of now so far so good. I don't notice anything at all.
I do have a bone to pick with audi about the oem non-servicable and weak design. Especially after losing a whole driveshaft on my previous C7. The thinness is almost laughable and definitely doesn't seem like it'll last the life of the car yet they decide to make it a one-piece type of deal that you can't replace without changing the whole driveshaft. These aftermarket options are a godsend for people who drive their car hard.
Overall i'm very satisfied with the JHM kit I installed it with basic tools and the car on jack stands. Install wasn't too bad after I realized why the rope wasn't going in all the way (sagging oem carrier) and the fact that its reversible is nice. Though I don't plan on taking it off.
For the price its hard to beat as well. It does seem like this design will hold up long term just fine. Only time will tell though. But for now I have to give props to JHM. Fixed my issue without losing any comfort. (Posted on 9/29/2022)
- Great quality and easy install.
- I've been wanting to get a center bearing carrier from another brand but was hesitant on buying it since you have to cut up your old bearing support. Saw this get released and knew I had to get it. Quality is amazing. Install was very easy and straightforward. I removed the stock exhaust on my B6 A4 since I was installing a new exhaust. I wouldn't do it without removing the exhaust or else you will just be fighting it trying to maneuver around it. Lower the driveshaft and have it supported by a jack or jack stand and you can install this with ease. (Posted on 8/8/2022)
