    So anyone wanna do a meet and help me do a center support bearing replacement? Mine is gettin pretty bad and it sounds like the driveline is smacking on the bottom of my car... I finally have a little bit of cash and it needs to be done... I dont have a garage to use due to the ix being down and I dont have air tools to make it a 20 minute job... I couldn't get it off when I did my guibo so I don't know what the deal is... I don't have the part yet but I will be ordering it tomorrow and also checkin with Kuni BMW. So who's up for it? I would love to check out the Horsepower freaks shop if that guy is down, but any help would be cool...
    I have a brand new Febi one I'll sell cheap. PM me if interested.

Separating the driveshaft and preloading the csb are the easiest part. Hardest is removing the four diff flange bolts, and pulling the bearing off. And those arent even hard.
      How long have you been at Kuni?

        Yeah, but searching for them is harder than just asking since it said you were browsing this thread.

        As to why, I was just brainstorming. I was considering going the M42 route because the power gain is about the same as a M20B23, but it weighs less and gets better MPG. The result, I'm still going to put in a M20B23.

              I use discount all the time. Just be sure they quote you for the whole unit. A lot of times they just price the bearing itself.

              Been at Kuni for a couple months. Just a couple days a week, in order to take advantage of said benefits. :) Buy parts at Kuni and get your beaters washed for free, lol. Been acquiring a lot of parts myself lately. lol
