Racingline MQB Propshaft Bearing Alignment Kit for Audi S3 & RS3 (8V), S3 (8Y), Volkswagen Arteon 2.0T 4Motion, Golf GTI & R (MK7 & MK8).
This precision-engineered, Prop shaft Bearing Alignment Kit from Racingline Performance centralises the factory centre support bearing carrier by cutting out the enlarged factory hole tolerances. Meaning your prop shaft is held in perfect true orientation at all times.
The oversize holes on the factory brackets are designed to allow several degrees of 'twist' on the centre bearing carrier, causing damaging stresses on both the prop and centre bearing. That may be great for lazy repair shops to shuffle the adjustment around, and no doubt helps the factory with quick production-line assembly, but will lead to accelerated wear from misalignment.
Every hard launch & shift provokes movement in the drivetrain - over time this risks shifting the factory prop mount out of alignment. This simple alignment kit reduces the bolt hole size down from M14 to M8, allowing no further twist from the brackets and ensuring that your prop cannot move from this position.
Fit this Alignment Kit once, then drive it safe in the knowledge that your prop shaft will remain in the correct alignment forever more.
