Wow, why you selling? I sold my '07 about a month ago and bought an A6.

the rings go on the end of the axle. when the axle is pulled out, you slide the spacer on. the OD of the spacer is the same OD as the end of the axle so all you need to do is line it up and temp. hold it in place till you slide the axle back in and tighten the axle nut.

it doesnt get rid of them 100% but it does drastically cut them down by nearly 80-85% imo. again this vibration is all subjective to the person which is why i was going to have people test them out prior to have them produced.

Man i've been looking all over and trying to follow these threads! FINALLY i've found this one!.

I have a turbocharged S2000's and lowered. axle spacers are very common for our s2000's. They are called half shaft spacers or full. The half shaft spacers are the most popular as we can just unbolt the axles from the diff portion, slide them out just enough and put the spacers on, rebolt and done.

I very much believe these are a great solution.

Do you have these premade i can purchase?

You can blame that on the 4GS.
