I'd rather do it myself
Better hurry if you want the Amazon ones. I ordered on 5/27 and there were 70 at the time. They are down to 13 now.
You can't get one from the dealership. Hyundai, BMW, Mercedes, ect only offer a complete driveline, not just the couplers.The picture on this one makes it look like you get a really cool looking clear one.
But here is the link on amazon for the other one, for future reference so you don't have to pay $200 now at the dealer.
Amazon.com: SGF GAH04-005 - OEM German Made Flex Coupler - Bolt Circle 105mm/Bolt Hole 12mm/Bolt Hole Length 35mm: Automotive
Here ya go!You can't get one from the dealership. Hyundai, BMW, Mercedes, ect only offer a complete driveline, not just the couplers.
Do these not have some sort of steel or kevlar based cord inside? If you look at the link I posted with the clear ish one, you can see more than just rubber or urethane in there.After having custom cast my own enigne mounts, then experiementing with different Urethanes on my AT insulators I will do this when the time comes
Industrial Urethane castime compunds,..2 part.
All you need to do is remove the old oem. Make a casting mold of the part. Then you can go to town and experiment on the Durometer of the new casting depending on your driving needs.
The new part will last forever, unlike the oem rubber stuff.
Both shore A abd shore D are superior in yaw resistance, tensile strength, impact resistance etc. You must decide on hardness versus dampening.
The cost would be 25% of the above oem replacement.
Daily drivers would be a high rated shore A.
A guy like Shorttrack would defintely go shore D, and not realy give a **** about a little vibration transfer.
Even a high rated shore D will have better dampening than a solid aluminum disc. It would fail before the Urethane, also Urethane is superior to aluminium in shock resistance.
If one needed to insert stainless sleeves, or a cross bracing that wouldnt be difficult. It would just take some dissection of the oem after making the casting mold.Do these not have some sort of steel or kevlar based cord inside?

Is this a dealership?..... No?Here ya go!
Part # 49130-3M000
Dealerships are notorious for this. Then ebay has them.LOLIs this a dealership?..... No?
My dealership's parts department, as well as 3 in Seattle, can't order the couplers without ordering the complete assembly.
I ordered these couplers from amazon for $70 USD a piece and replaced them (results were spectacular). Amazon has a note from the seller (SGF / DriveShaftPro) that they can get more: "Usually takes 3-4 weeks for us to receive from Germany though. "Better hurry if you want the Amazon ones. I ordered on 5/27 and there were 70 at the time. They are down to 13 now.
