APR is pleased to present the ultimate Pendulum Mount Upgrade!

APR is pleased to present the ultimate Pendulum Mount Upgrade!



The APR Pendulum mount replaces the factory mount with a new, thick, billet-aluminum two-piece design, featuring a PTFE-lined spherical bearing and ARP bolts. The system stiffens the driveline to improve shift quality and power transition, while addressing the common and costly factory failure point at the transmission mounting location. It is easy to install, addresses all concerns with the factory setup and includes all necessary hardware to bolt on and enjoy!



Quick Facts:

Reduces transmission movement
By removing the factory rubber bushing, the APR system reduces slop in the driveline to improve shifts, and transmission of power to the ground. Expect a sportier feel during acceleration, deceleration and gear changes without an excessive increase in NVH when paired with the factory sub-frame mount.

Reduces transmission failure
The factory rear mounting point was upgraded to the new MQB / MK7 platform style mount as the older design was prone to failure under heavy use. Because of the new designís mounting orientation, the system is far less likely to tear out or break the rear bolts, which typically results in costly repairs or full transmission case replacement.

Spherical bearing
Spherical bearings offer far less unwanted movement over rubber and polyurethane inserts. As such, the APR mount uses a spherical bearing, made possible by upgrading the rear mounting hardware. The bearing is fully-serviceable, features a heat-treated race and precision-ground ball, with a self-sealing and self-lubricating PTFE lining.

Billet aluminum construction
The front and rear pieces replace the factory cast aluminum and stamped steel pieces with precisely machined, billet-aluminum pieces that are both lightweight and strong. Each piece is anodized black to provide corrosion resistance and the APR logo is laser etched on each side.

ARP Bolts
The factory bolts are one-time-use, and must be replaced when installing a new mount. The APR system includes non-one-time-use ARP bolts for their strength, quality and longevity over the factory bolts.

Easy to install
The system is easy to install, doesnít require dropping the sub-frame and is compatible with the factory and factory-like modified sub-frame mounts. Full install directions are included with each system.

Application Guide

All MK5/MK6 Golf/GTI/Jetta and similar platform vehicles.

Yup! You're welcome. We polled the internet before the release as to what they wanted to pay and $250 was the overwhelming response!

I wonder how this would feel with the VWR subframe mount as well. Probably nuts.

The vibration is low with the factory subframe mount and most inserts. If you've changed it to a solid unit, you'll feel it a lot more.

Does this significantly improve the feel of the DSG?

Is it better than an insert in terms of vibes and movements?

But isn't most of the movement in the subframe mount? I always saw the dog bone or dog bone bushing itself as the last bit that needed to be addressed, let alone re-engineered.

What do I know. With those three letters someone will buy it.

Any chance Arin can post the installation manual? Just want to make sure it is something that I, a not so handy guy, can manage.

By the way, I do have the BFI Stage 1 insert. Can I use that together with this?

Thanks.

Yes the majority of the movement comes from the subframe bushing. The bushing in the dogbone is tiny there is little movement there.
