Hey all!

I have searched around a bit and am trying to find a service kit for the cardan/propeller shaft to my Audi 80 (b2) quattro 1983.

Blauparts previously sold a kit that contained everything they needed, but stopped selling them due to quality problems.

Their kit contained this:
    Audi Quattro Driveshaft Center Support Bearing
    Audi Driveshaft CV Joints (located on the end of the driveshaft)
    Audi Driveshaft CV Joint Gaskets
    Audi Driveshaft CV Joint Boots
    Audi Driveshaft CV Joint Boot Clamps
    Audi Driveshaft U-Joint
    Audi Driveshaft U-Joint Grease Zerk (depending on model)
    Audi High Performance Moly Grease
    Audi Quattro Driveshaft Bolts
    'We Care' Audi Center Support Bearing Installation Tips
    Audi Driveshaft Center Support Bearing

So long story short, anyone knows where I can get a new set?

Look here for a full propshaft rebuild.

If it does not come up, do a search for propshaft.

What exact parts are you looking for? And for what model audi? You can get center bearings off ebay for around $50+/- or this place https://www.driveshaftparts.com/index.p ... uct_id=422 Most parts places still sell the CV's. And the boots you can get from Scott at advancedautomotion he also sells the CV's https://advancedautomotion.com/shop/pro ... chlti3ecc6 I wouldn't try replacing the the u-joint(if not staked in) without having the shaft balanced after.

Have you used the Center Support Bearing from that company? Because it does not have the same configuration at the stock one?
As far as the boots go, the company in my write up, sells the same boots for about the same price.
If you keep the propshaft clocked right when you pull it apart and put back together, you can replace the u-joint without having it re-balanced.

Thnx man, I need to change the cv they don't go as smooth as I want them to, it feels as if it's a bump inside when you wiggel them.

The u-joint is good so no need to change that, but the center bearing is on the replacement list to

Best to ask machine shop to do a one piece shaft, never have U-joint or carrier bearing issues again.
I had balance issues on my 90q (S2 clone) and it now sports a one piece shaft, smooth as silk.
BTW the new carrier bearings with Chinese parts only last a fraction of time.
