Audi 4M Platform Propshaft Centre Support Bearing Carrier Upgrade

Upgraded Propshaft Centre Support Bearing Carrier for Audi Q7 / SQ7 / Q8 / SQ8 / RSQ8 4M Platform

The stock centre support bearing carrier is designed to reduce NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) to the cabin by loosely holding the center bearing with flimsy rubber spokes. During launches and shifts, the propshaft is allowed to travel off-center, decreasing throttle response and causing oscillations through the drivetrain. As they age, the carrier rubber sags and dry rots, ruining the propshaft alignment.

This upgraded unit keeps the propshaft firmly in place at all times, and its polyurethane construction ensures it will never wear out. The high quality thick bushings ensure the propshaft cannot move from center, maintaining alignment at all times.

  • Holds the propshaft where it should be
  • Isolation dampers minimize vibrations
  • Bush Options:

    Two options are available for the carrier bushings, both of which are much higher quality over the stock bushings. Close attention has been paid to the NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) levels associated with this upgrade. After extensive design iterations, custom isolator bushings have been developed that separate the carrier from the body of the vehicle and mounting hardware. These carriers substantially reduce NVH levels.

    Street Bushes: These absorb most of the NVH from the drivetrain. Some light NVH is possible at some speeds in the form of a soft hum. With a modified exhaust or the windows down you're more than likely to never hear it.

    Track Bushes: Delivers no compromise drivetrain performance. These may create a substantial amount of cabin noise.

    Both Bushes: Not sure which is for you? Try them both, they’re interchangeable


    Installation Methods:

    Installation does not require disassembly of the propshaft. The 2-part design clamps around the OEM bearing. The old carrier must be removed, so a cutting tool is required.
