    AM aluminum driveshaft

    July 18, 2011

    I have AM's driveshaft on my Roush TVS blown 2011 GT. It ran 9.89 in Maryland on 3-25-11 weighing 3805 lbs with the stock longblock, tranny and converter. I bought another cheaper d/s only to return it because it vibrated. This car makes 670 rwhp and 611 rwtq and has run a best of 1.419 sixty foot on dot's weighing 3805 lbs! I have no concerns about d/s failure and it is vibration free. Is a very high quality piece. I have since bought another of AM's alum driveshafts for my 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca and there is no vibration at fuel shut off of 155 mph. It improved acceleration nicely and is a great improvement to the Ford two piece monster.

    Noticeable difference

    May 12, 2013

    My car is a 2012 GT Manual with headers, Boss intake, Cold Air on a Bama tune. All of this is riding on Ford Racing Suspension with the K springs which is a 1.5 inch drop with TSW 19 inch wheels. I mention the drop because it will matter as you read on. Removal of the stock 2 piece drive shaft took about 10 minutes with 4 jack stands (rear axle supported by 2 allowing for a pretty level drive line) and air tools. Get the vehicle as high as possible as you will need to torque all of the fasteners and you need room for the torque wrench. The instructions describe the requirement to move the emergency brake cable bracket and to flatten any shielding in the transmition tunnel if the car is lowered from 1-2 inches. None of this is required for a 2012. There is plenty of clearance with the cars suspension at full travel. You really couldn't move the brake cable bracket easily even if you wanted to. You will need to remove pinion flange and replace it with the new one (this requires an impact gun or one heck of a breaker bar). Install took about 2 hours total. Several install write ups are available on line but I will tell you that a torque wrench capable of 140 lb./ft. and a 27mm socket. The resulting drive shaft angle (with the 1.5inch drop) was within tolerance and there is no vibration (tested up to 135mph). The reduction in rotational mass is most noticeable accelerating from low RPM. The car feels lighter and revs faster. From 1500-3000 RPM the car is snappier with less throttle needed. It was well worth the price and is a quality piece!

    Aluminum one piece drive shaft.

    April 03, 2013

    Well great news guys !!! This is definitely a upgrade. Once you have removed your old 2 piece drive shaft one will notice a big difference in weight. I would not believe i was installing this shaft without having to use my car on a lift. Heads up on installing, relive the rear exhaust to allow a more comfortable access to the bolts you will need to remove. This installation is definitely not for beginners. Not all the bolts removed will have thread lock applied so it will take extra effort in removing the stock bolts. The new bolts provided will be applied with thread lock but remember to re apply threat lock to the bolts bolting back up to the tail housing. This took me a total of 4 hours to install all by myself. Once you have finished enjoy :) the drive shaft will be supplied with instructions as to how many foot pounds of torque should be applied to re-installation. Best of luck. People. Why upgrade you say well let's see. To prevent twisting a shaft as I managed to do so drag racing. A Noticeable increase in mpg as well.

    Much better than stock

    September 22, 2012

    I purchased this drive shaft after much research about the benefits of reducing rotational mass. Very high quality and about 20lbs lighter. Had a race shop install it and check it on the dyno for vibration. No increased noise or vibration. After this drive shaft, forged rims and light weight exhaust; the car feels quicker. Very happy

    Installed within 2 hours

    April 29, 2012

    I noticed no vibrations like some people have with other shafts, we did have to install the pinion flange and set the preload. Overall it was a fairly easy job with a experienced mechanic, I would not advise installing this without a lift, have a professional install it, because if you screw up the pinion flange, its your fault. on the road, I can definitely tell the car accelerates faster feels like it has lower gears, off the line very noticeable very responsive.

    So smooth....

    April 19, 2014

    Never mind the increased acceleration, never mind the piece of mind from durability provided by this shaft, never mind the allure of lower ET's...do it for "the smooth". It's difficult to describe in words how much better the drivetrain "feels" after installing this drive shaft. (manual tranny) It's much more snappy, tight, responsive, and smooooooth. The slack, slop, and clunk is GONE. No vibrations. Extremely happy with this driveshaft.

    A must have especially for 2012 mustang!

    July 22, 2013

    Guys if the question is, is it worth spending the money on the product the answer is YES! Huge difference in throttle response and is a super easy install. I have the eibach sport line springs and the drop is 1.3" In front and 2.0" in the rear and it works great no additional mods needed even putting suspension under load, pinion angle is still within specs. make sure you count the amount of threads on nut before removing pinion flange bolt or just torque to 140' pounds. Again works great no vibration or hum, oh' and be sure to seat the pinion flange nut with a ratchet not an impact gun (impact gun is only to aid in removal of nut).

    you will notice a difference

    June 14, 2013

    First thing you will find in your shipment is one small sheet of instructions that don't tell you much of anything , that you torque the new bolts to 76 ft/lbs I installed this with stock susp do not remove the paper covering the new driveshaft!!!. you need the following tools 10mm socket, 12 mm 12 pt socket. 13mm socket with a swivel 27mm (1" 1/16" ) socket and a torque wrench capable of 140 ft/lbs and 2 2x4 's about a foot long and tall jack stands (6 ton) and a small hammer (brass is nice) it's easier with two people also. first jack the car up and get it ask high up as you can run the stands to full up!! take out the original drive shaft ends loosen first rear is a 10mm front a 12mm 12pt then a 13 mm with a swivel to take loose the carrier bearing do the drivers side bolt first!! then slide the old unit out the back. set the e-brake and remove the pinion flange plate with the 27mm or 1" 1/16" socket , then tap the flange off. Grease the seal surface and and tap the new flange on the pinion and replace the pinion nut and torque to 140 ft /lbs. next is the hard part getting the new shaft in. don't take the paper cover off of it you will need to shove the 2x4's between the exhaust and the floor pan to gain room or drop the exhaust down the shaft goes in from the rear with the bellows at the rear ( i did this by myself extra hands is s huge help) it rubs everywhere as its going in ( had to use my feet to push it thru pulling on the swaybar) once it's in the tunnel put your bolts in using loctite and a 12mm 12pt socket and torque them to 76 ft/lbs then remove the paper cover it took me 1.5 hrs to install in the driveway by myself. I noticed just backing the car up a difference and it's so smooth and less pedal on the gas too.
