Being "really worth the money" depends on your goals and current mods. Can you give some background on your car?

From what I've read it makes the car easier or "Nicer" to drive and it makes it easier to light up the wheels since you are getting less mass rotating. Another advantage is the deletion of your carrier bearings. Down side is I've read a lot of people get vibrations.

Its worth it in the same way lighter wheels are "worth" it. Measurable power differences will be minimal but the driving feel will be dramatically improved, especially when a 1pc CFDS and light wheels are combined together.

My vote is yes. You will only get vibrations if you have a problem with your cars suspension bushings on the back end. Either the diff carriers or the 4 subframe ones.

For me the difference was definitely noticeable. The car feels more responsive. I didn't pick up any vibrations.

Driveshaft hit the rear sway bar I figure. It didnt fail due to power.
