I was hearing a strange sound from my 2015 R/T, come to find out that the center carrier bearing on the driveshaft was the noise. To make matters worst, I am told that you have replace the driveshaft, which costs around 1200.00 dollars !
Is this a common thing to happen, my dealer says no, that any that they have replaced had 100,000 plus miles.
The bad part is my car is out of the powertrain warranty ( 5 yrs in Dec 20 ), but only has under 45000 miles.
This is my wife's car, and it is NOT been abused, very disappointing.

How many of you guys have a problem like this ? I bought the car new, and to be honest, it has been less than dependable, lots of issues ! I am a Mopar guy, I also have a 2019 challenger Scat Pack, but am starting to rethink my next purchase.

While it is not epidemic, quite a few 2015 Challenger R/Ts have had this issue and as low as 5,000 miles I think.

Not unusual. But there's no way I'd pay $1200 for a driveshaft when all that's wrong is the bearing.

Look for a local driveshaft repair shop and have them replace the bearing and balance the driveshaft for a few hundred bucks.

That sucks man. They changed it in 2015 to a system you cannot change the CSB. I looked on Rockauto, they are not offered like the earlier years.

OE for 750.00+ HERE.

If you go with DSS call them and ask about the 4" diameter if it will interfere with your mufflers, and if you will need the adapter to angle the pinion. And know its an 8 to 10 week wait.

I'm going with their 3" two piece. I'm going on 5 weeks 4 days now.

I installed a DSS one piece aluminum last year on my 17 Daytona. Fit and balance are perfect. The shifts in sport mode are a lot harder.

I hear that...I have a 2015 challenger RT shaker and has 30000 miles on it . The other day notice a strang noice coming from under the car jacked it up and grabbed ahold of the drive shaft and could move it up and down. Meaning the carrier bearing was bad. What a bad design. Called the dealership and they said my warranty ran out in January go figure and a new shaft was $932.00. Wow! Can just the carrier bearing be replaced on that model?
