BMW E46 M3 Driveshafts

BMW E46 M3 Driveshafts Got a vibration through the driveline on your BMW? Did you know that the u-joints are not replaceable on a factory driveshaft? Our remanufactured driveshafts allow for future replacement of u-joints and are rebuilt to a higher specification than the factory driveshaft. We start with OEM u-joints and then machine yokes onto the driveshaft to allow for future u-joint replacement. All bushings, universal joints, center bearings are replaced with new hardware (flex discs are not included but available separately). The whole unit is then dynamically balanced on a precision Axiline Balancer.

Chromoly CV driveshaft - E46 M3

This is a 1-piece Chromoly conversion for the BMW E46 (6-Speed Manual Transmission ONLY, will not fit SMG).

The shaft is 3" x .083" DOM tube with billet aluminum plates to convert the small bolt pattern on the factory transmission to use larger 1310 U-Joint and a 108mm CV to mount to the differential, which will eliminate any possible pinion angle issues. This shaft weighs 25 pounds and since there is no hanger bearing, it will make the car seem more athletic and give it a smoother power transfer.
Unlike other aftermarket shafts for BMW's this shaft features a slider system that will let the shaft move in and out during racing and chassis flex. This shaft is now being balanced on a new 9500RPM balancer to ensure a perfectly balanced shaft. Comes complete with precision machined front and rear conversion plates and all necessary hardware for installation.
The Driveshaft Shop has been manufacturing heavy duty replacement driveshafts for street and track vehicles around the world for the last thirty years. Every single shaft is dynamically balanced at over 9000 RPMs to ensure unbeatable reliability. With materials such as Carbon Fiber, Aluminum, and Chromoly The Driveshaft Shop has a solution for you no matter what the application.

This part fits the following BMWs:
2001 - 2006 E46 M3
