I had this similar experinece last year I had checked  around at dealers
seems they only sell the whole shaft..but wait
don't spend that much money. I contacted the people at BLAUFERGNUGEN and
were able to get me the center
shaft bearing (i believe it was around $60 bucks) the price for the whole
shaft over $800....By the way they were the only
peolpe "WORLD wide " that supply this bearing to the best of my knowledge.

As for the the suspension well don't want to say too much as it mite get me
in trouble as in the past on the list.
but anyway I did this already as well I bought some strut front/shock rear
for the V8 at RD enterprises
www.shox.com  they gave a very nice price for a real nice shock. They other
option is the S727 option.
Oh hear we go again I can hear the others already,  it's the sport version
suspension for type 44 chassis...
but believe IBACH had a spring similar to the S727 option...may the others
will know more about this...
