    Diesel dogbone

    Got one of these fitted today,powerflex red. What a difference for such a small part and cheap to boot.
    Basically eliminates lift when changing gears and less vibration when in too high a gear.
    Well recommended.

    I had the forge fitted for a while but didnt like the vibrations in the cabin. Where can you get the diesel one from?

    My original were shot to bits, more like black marshmallows.
    A little bit more vibration in the cabin, but I was used to the marshmallows.
