Weight 5 kg

The factory rubber driveshaft bushing that constrains the driveshaft center carrier bearing is prone to excess deflection and wear, especially on modified or aggressively-driven vehicles. With our ECS Tuning in-house engineered Polyurethane and Billet Aluminum Driveshaft Center Support Bearing Brace you can expect less driveshaft deflection which we felt had a note-able improvement in throttle response and longevity over the factory rubber bearing support.



  • In-house designed and engineered using FARO ARM laser scanning technology and SolidWorks 3D CAD modeling for precision fitment
  • Carrier Bearing Bushing:
    • 40A durometer polyurethane bearing support clamps on over existing center support bearing
    • ​Fully replaces worn-out rubber that allows for excessive driveshaft movement
  • Carrier Housing:
    • 6061-T6 billet aluminum support brace properly constrains the polyurethane bearing support to the driveshaft bearing
    • Type II black anodized for corrosion protection
  • Includes new carrier mounting hardware and thread locking compound needed for installation
  • ​Retains factory mounting location and exhaust clearance



  • Polyurethane bearing support – 2 halves
  • Billet aluminum carrier housing assembly
  • 0.5ml Medium strength threadlocker
  • Carrier housing assembly hardware
  • New TTY hardware to install the carrier housing to chassis



  • Our ECS Driveshaft Center Support Bearing Brace was designed, engineered, tested and quality inspected by our Research and Development team in our Wadsworth, Ohio facility. We strive for the highest level of precision and quality through leading-edge product development technology including FARO laser scanning for reverse engineering and quality inspection, SolidWorks 3D CAD modeling, rapid prototyping utilizing our in-house 3D printer, and rigorous long term product testing.
