Pretty sure its the other way round.. Less complaints,(but RSD pushes PST so there may well be more of em) and DSS certainly looks to be the better, and not so short. The DSS, at least mine looks like they take pride in producing it.

Another +1 for the DSS CF DS. I've had mine since 2014. At this point, nothing but good things to say about it.

Welp, I appreciate that then. Looks like I'm going to get the DSS. That's why I initially was going to get the PST was because it was on RSD site.

The only other thing I've read is that the CF driveshafts are slightly shorter so trans fluid leaks out? How true does this hold? I'd hate to have to keep addressing that...

Thanks again,
-Nigel

Should not not leak oil. There is a post on this site saying they lost a tiny bit while doing the install. Ya know, there are probably 100s of posts on this site alone! You can read em all and decide. Search CFDS, PST and DSS . . . .

I've had a DSS CF driveshaft on my 2011 STI since 2013. It has been working perfectly. No oil leaks once installed.
