Quick report after using the tailshaft for a few 100ks now do this now if you have not already it makes the car 10000% better then driving with the shudder.

It didn't hit at all when we went out the weekend it was installed I was under there checking on every opportunity it looks to have about an inch of clearance from the cross member.

Is this the kit off Ebay mate? It's been in my watch list for a while now, wanting to press the buy now button! Also, have you noticed any differences in sound?
