Sorry but your video doesn't come up,error message !
X2. use the warranty first, save the $$ for single piece if it happens again out of warranty. There could be other things wrong aside from the bushing too.... Extended cost of the fix may have cost-wander....Get it fixed under warranty. Then if you do get a one piece DS you can put the stock one back on if you decide to sell the car later on.
I don't believe there is to be any play. Definitely don't drive that car any more than you have to in order to get it to the dealer, diagnosed, and repaired under warranty. You may want to have it towed there. I believe the warranty takes care of that too. Call your dealer ASAP.good info... how much play should be in this center mount??
Sorry I may have been mistaken about there not being any slop at the carrier bearing that but it sure does not seem right to me to be able to move up and down vertically that much. But what the link choate provided does make sense about the drivetrain lash or rotational slop.I wonder if the shop foreman has been trained to say "Oh that is normal" no matter the circumstance? I sure don't remember there being any slop at all at the carrier bearing when I replaced my 2 piece drive shaft.
