LOWER DOGBONE MOUNT INSERT
Enhance the Performance of Your Volkswagen or Audi with Our Dogbone Mount Inserts
Unleash the full potential of your MkV/MkVI Volkswagen or 8J/8P Audi with our high-performance dogbone mount (torque arm bushing) insert upgrades. If you've boosted your vehicle's power beyond factory specifications and are searching for a solution to deliver that newfound power effectively to the ground, look no further. Say goodbye to the annoyance of excessive engine and transmission movement affecting your shift quality and overall performance. The factory dogbone mount, riddled with voids to isolate the driver from road feedback, is a notorious weak link in your drivetrain.
Our meticulously crafted billet aluminum lower dogbone mount insert is engineered to fill those problematic voids in your factory dogbone mount. This ingenious solution reduces transmission and engine movement without sacrificing ride quality or introducing any noticeable noise, vibration, or harshness into the cabin. By eliminating the slop in the factory mount, our insert ensures crisper shifts and a more direct, connected driving experience.
This insert is designed to work seamlessly with the factory rubber mount, meticulously crafted using CAD software, and rigorously tested to minimize slop without compromising cabin comfort. Unlike polyurethane alternatives, this billet aluminum insert guarantees long-lasting performance, with no worries about packing or wear over time.
Rest assured, the 034Motorsport Dogbone Mount Insert has been extensively tested by both our experts and independent Audi/Volkswagen enthusiasts to ensure its effectiveness. Installation is a breeze, taking just minutes, and can be effortlessly reversed if needed.
- Crafted from T6-6061 Billet Aluminum
- In-House CNC Machining for Precision
- Durable Clear Anodized Finish
- Designed to Fill Void in Factory Transmission Mount
- Drastically Reduces Transmission Movement During Shifting & Deceleration
- Improves Shifting Feel, Resulting in Crisper Shifts
- Virtually No Additional NVH Transfer Inside Cabin
- Quick and Simple Installation
034Motorsport Billet Aluminum Lower Dogbone Mount Insert
UPPER DOGBONE MOUNT INSERT
The 034Motorsport Upper Dogbone Mount Insert (patent pending) recommended for any MkV/MkVI Volkswagen Golf/GTI/R/Jetta/GLI and 8P Audi A3 & 8J Audi TT/TTS/TTRS using any dogbone mount and dogbone mount insert, and is strongly recommended when using the OEM dogbone mount and a lower insert. Aggressive driving that causes violent drivetrain movement, such as burn-outs that induce wheel-hop, will cause the upper and lower dogbone mounts to exert a bending moment on the dogbone mount arm, causing it to bend, and in some cases fail. When this failure occurs, the bottom of the engine is unconstrained and the engine will cause damage to other components in the engine bay. The 034Motorsport Upper Dogbone Mount Insert eliminates these bending forces, allowing the dogbone mount to perform as designed during these violent events.
- CNC machined 6061 billet aluminum upper insert
- Clear anodized for a beautiful, corrosion resistant finish
- Water-jet cut aluminum lower insert spacer
- Lower insert spacer ensures upper and lower inserts don't touch and vibrate
- Eliminates bending moment in dogbone arm
- Ensures even compression of upper and lower dogbone mount pucks
- Eliminates wear on lower dogbone mount puck

Enhance Your Drivetrain Responsiveness and Durability
The combination of any dogbone mount with a lower dogbone mount insert significantly improves drivetrain feel and responsiveness. However, these modifications can introduce forces that OEM dogbone mounts aren't designed to handle, potentially causing damage. While aftermarket billet aluminum dogbone mounts offer increased strength, they may still experience bending forces. Adding our Upper Dogbone Mount Insert eliminates these forces and evenly distributes them between the upper and lower dogbone mount pucks, reducing wear on the lower puck.
Our lower dogbone mount insert minimizes compliance, resulting in a more direct response of the drivetrain to acceleration and deceleration. It delivers heightened throttle response without introducing significant NVH.
But during violent drivetrain shocks, like wheel-hop-inducing burnouts, the upper puck moves forward while the lower puck remains restrained, causing rotation within the puck assembly and applying a bending moment to the dogbone mount arm.
That's where our 034Motorsport Billet Upper Dogbone Mount Insert comes in. It fits into the front void of the upper dogbone mount puck, matching the limited forward motion of the lower puck when the lower insert is installed. This combination ensures that forces act on the dogbone arm in the direction it was designed for, preventing bending or stress. Watch our demonstration video to see how the dogbone mount pucks move with just the lower insert, and with both the upper and lower inserts combined.
Upgrade your Volkswagen or Audi's drivetrain durability and responsiveness with the 034Motorsport Dogbone Mount Inserts today!
