In order to mount this kit, you will need to do the following:
The two large brackets is mounted on top of the old bearing cover (2121-2303086)
The 6 studs must be at least size: M8x35 mm (Not included)
By separating the front reducer housing from the engine (they are normally attached to each other) you reduce engine vibration (and noise) from being transmitted.
A similar kit is used in the LADA Niva Diesel (VAZ 21215).
The kit will give your front reducer housing 4 fix-points, hence a more rigid attachment to the body of the car. The old original front reducer housing only has 2 fix-points (on the engine).
The kit is made with elastic sleeves (rubber) in all 4 fix-points. The old design does not use any elastic sleeves, and is just bolted straight to the engine.
This is a required kit, if you want to build our own engine solution.
Only the LADA engines are able to attach to the front reducer housing. This is why you would need an independent (independent from the engine, that is) front reducer housing mounting (or else, the front reducer housing would fall down).
It was originally created for the LADA Niva Diesel (VAZ 21215). The front reducer housing (Front Differential) is not able to be attached to the Diesel engine because of a different design in the engine housing, and Diesel engines are also known to vibrate with a higher amplitude compared to Gasoline. The kit solved both problems, and were re-introduced in the development of the very popular Chevy Niva.
Our experience so far is, that this kit reduces the high frequency noise (compared to the noise from the propeller axles, which is of a lower frequency).
The noise reduction is most evident in idle, and driving at a fixed speed. Travelling long distances in the LADA Niva, were not making us as tired/exhausted as before.
