Steve,

Vibration is the first noticeable indicator of a torque tube problem although most people can not isolate the vibration to the tube. It is usually blamed on other things like bad motor mounts or tranny mounts. So you end up finding it by process of elimination.

If the vibration is ignored the forward end of the drive shaft can be damaged when the bearings get really bad.

Removal requires dropping the tranny and torsion bar housing so the rear bell housing can clear the spare tire housing.

Special tools are not needed, just some pieces from Home Depo and a hockey puck. It can be done by most DIYers.

Marc,

Do you still have these available? My 944s2 torque tube is getting a bit "noisier" and I have a clutch replacement coming up, so....

Hi Marc. Any chance you still supply these? I'm looking for a set. Thanks!!

I'm having trouble getting any more of the C4 clearance steel bearings so for now I'm only offering the ceramic bearings.

Please do not buy any kit with the C3 bearing or buy a bearing replacement that is C3 clearance as they will fail far sooner than you would like.

Here is a picture of the front and rear of the new bearing with collar installed.
