I have the DSS CF driveshaft and I love it. It's probably my favourite mod I've ever done to a Subaru. There are zero downsides and it makes the car more drive able. Starting from a stop is smoother with less jerking.

I'm about to purchase myself a CF DS as well and was wondering if there's anything else I could/should do since I'm under there. Any bushings? Practical bracing?

I have a WL rear sway, KB endlinks installed.
I have a cusco power steering brace and WL bushings I'm going to install at the same time.

Installed the DSS CF driveshaft and its been about 400 miles, drivetrain is a lot smoother and it feels like the car pulls harder (my car isnt stock, FBO + flex), it was a very noticeable difference that i wasnt expecting. It was worth it for me because i hate the jerking but i would say theres still a good amount of jerking left and i have group n mounts.

I also did drill out my flange, I believe I used a 13/16 drill bit, it was super easy install even with the drilling.

I'm pretty sure you mean a 13/32" drill bit, not 13/16". 13/32" is 10.3mm.

I had PST for 7 years and a LOT of hard street and track use. No problems with fitment, durability or balance. It got damaged due to debris on track and had to replace it. I am running DSS and one race on it at 560whp, no issues whatsoever.

Installed my PST DS about 3 weeks ago, then 2 days later did an Autox. I can't believe how much the car responds now. Amazing mod thats worth the price.
