1 Propshaft support donuts on 26th April 2015, 1:55 pm

Ok, so my propshaft donuts are pretty much knackered and to buy them from Nissan they're in the region of £240 each Shocked , I've seen some Febest one's online for around £40 each, has anyone had any experience with Febest parts?, thanks.

Had febest brake parts such as caliper brackets, slide pins/boots & bolts, quality on that was fine.
They do a lot of bushes & gaiters but not had much use of it to draw a real conclusion. At £40 & perhaps less if search around it could be worth a try as at worst it should have similar life span as a light use used one .

Thanks B, I will see if I can find them at a better price and get some, I was just a bit concerned on the quality ass they are chinese made, but I suppose they shouldn't be that bad?

You will be surprised how much of your parts that OEMs use are actually chinese factories & asian factories, thailand for example does a lot of rubber parts & interior mouldings. actual bracket & rubber ring is easy & cheap in duplication, quality of bearing is the key! stuff from reputable production is pretty good for the cost, main big bearing makers from Japan US & Europe all have plants in China. I see Febest warranty is a year, would of been nice see 2yr but 1yr & actually putting a brand to the parts is potentially promising .
It bit of a gamble but if they do one that indeed spec'd to the R nissan one for £40 it worth a try.
You could also try ICP & see if they can source the nissan OEM more direct & thus cheaper perhaps ! .
Nissan price is just super ridiculous :-O
If the febest one works out add details in the useful links section as could be handy ... good luck .

Heres the Febest at super bargain price inc P&P (24.99)

Worth a try at that price, I cross check the R part number & it matches.
Huge amount of sellers worldwide so easily found around the £35<>£45 range.

OK guys, I ordered some genuine Nissan one's from Rhd Japan, part number is 37521-6p025, they are listed for an S15/ Skyline but they do fit the Gti-r propshaft, the only difference is that the nut that comes with them is a larger thread, but I just reused my old ones, dimensionally they are identical, and I got them for £150for the pair plus a bit of import tax, so all in all not bad for genuine parts I thought.
