Hello, I need some advice. 1988 325IS, last month my drive shaft started making noise, "sounded like bumping the floor behind the front passengers seat". I knew it would go sometime, but this is sooner than I thought!
I probably need to replace the drive shaft center support bearing, drive shaft flex joint, front drive shaft bushing, busing diff carrier support is there anything I am missing?
I had a garage I trust quote me $175-200 labor and I provide the parts. They have done good work for me before and I can trust them. Since this is my daily driver, they usually do the work for me while I watch and wait.
If my old catalytic converters failed to end up back on the car, would I see any power improvement or loss due to lower back pressure? I do not belief it will affect my engine operation as there appears to be no sensors that far back on the exhaust? I would leave the BMW mufflers on it.
All thoughts and feed back would be appreciated!
may i suggest you get under the car first and see for yourself exactly what needs to be replaced.
my way of thinking is: if u can't tell what is wrong when u are under... it's probably easier and cheaper for you to consult a local shop you can trust to show you exactly what is wrong , with priceq quotes before they do the work.
>>>I probably need to replace the drive shaft center support bearing, drive shaft flex joint, front drive shaft bushing, busing diff carrier support is there anything I am missing?<<< that alone is a bill of no less than $800.- more or less, amy may or may not even solve your prob
