Clearance Issues? My 2011 v6 has a 2.5" catback exhaust and I was also planning going with the eibach pro system plus to lower the car (1" in the front and 1.5" in the rear). Seeing that the stock driveshaft is 3.5" and this one is 4", will there be any clearance issues?

  • I have the Eibach Pro springs and a 2.5-inch cat-back, and this drive shaft clears everything just fine. Of course, I'm not off-roading either.

Do these one piece aluminum driveshaft require balancing? In another vehicle I owned, I had to have a driveshaft replaced and experienced a bad vibration before it was balanced.

  • The Aluminum One Piece Driveshaft (11-14 V6) is already balanced. You will not need to have to add any additional weights, this a bolt in installation that will only take a few hours. Hope that helps!

Question Resolved

Hi, I am considering buying the first of many mods for my Mustang and that would include this driveshaft along with the swapping of the stock gears for the 4.10 gears, I really just want to know if the driveshaft and the gears will be fine alone or do I need anything else to go along with them?

Jb

  • That sounds great! No additional part or components would be required, however, we would recommend a rear end installation kit, with the appropriate oil and friction modifier.

    I swapped drive shafts in about 1 1/2 hours using the instructions posted here. No problems at all and it was a perfect fit. I've experienced the same positive results that others have written here and well worth the cost. I can't understand why Ford doesn't at least offer this as an option.

    Driveshaft

    Wanted to get rid of the worst engineered drive shaft Ford has made for it's muscle cars. With a limiter placed on the car to prevent the driveshaft from tearing apart and damaging the vehicle. I now get to feel the power and enjoy the track without having to worry about it splitting . It also gets rid of the vibration I used to encounter around the 2700 rpm range when downshifting.

    The imortant things are what it doesn't do...

    For all it's terrific attributes (especially at the price), the current V6 Mustang is not without its engineering compromises. There were two that were of greatest concern to me, and this driveshaft addresses both. The first is vibration. For some reason the V6 MT Mustang can get a funky driveline vibration while decelerating in any gear at about 2500rpm, and I noticed it in mine from the day I got the car. A quick perusal of the forums indicated that this is a relatively common quirk that doesn't seem to have an easy fix. Since aluminum is much better at dampening vibrations than steel, I was hoping that the new shaft would help settle it down. And indeed it did. It didn't eliminate it entirely, but it is far less intrusive - and unless I have my hand on the shifter I don't feel it at all now. The difference is very noticeable. The second is, of course, the reputed weakness of the stock driveshaft at high rotational speeds. Rumor has it that this is the main reason for the factory speed limiter, and whether or not it's true many of us have heard stories (and seen the video) of shaft failure at 130mph and up. I don't know if this is really a design issue or merely a story that took on a life of its own after one failure. But I DO know that the worst place to put the slip-joint in an unsupported shaft is in the middle (where it is on the factory one). And this aluminum shaft puts it on the end (the rear in this case) where it should be. So I have no trouble believing that this shaft is the better design. I, for one, don't believe all these stories about the shaft being worth so-much hp, or that it makes a noticeable improvement in acceleration. The relatively small weight savings and small diameter of the shaft means that we're just not dealing with that much rotational inertia. But that's beside the point. The shaft gave me a smoother driveline and some peace of mind if I ever change that speed limiter. That's what I bought it for, and that's exactly what I got out of it.

    Awesome

    This Shaft is great! Really straight forward to install and makes the car feel so much more refined. The quality is top notch and give you a good piece of mind about not blowing up. The drive train is much smoother, the car revs up faster and at highway speeds it takes less throttle input to keep the car moving (better mpgs) Buy this diveshaft!

    Great product - DIY WARNING

    I had no clue how much rolling resistance was created by the (poorly engineered in my opinion) stock drive shaft. After having the new drive shaft installed I noticed right away when backing out of my garage... I had to actually hit the brake to keep from rolling out too quickly! When with the stock shaft I had to generally touch the gas just a little to really get rolling out. WARNING: The DIY instructions say to jack up the rear of the car by using the differential. The owners manual says: DO NOT lift the rear of the car using the differential! (it is no longer a one piece cast iron pumpkin/axle tubes... the axle tubes are just steel inserts into the cast iron pumpkin now)

    Good for Performance, not so much for Fit

    Since this is a 4" Dia shaft (The stock being 3.5"), you have a stronger yet a lighter shaft. This helps in acceleration, reducing gear shift clunk, improved mileage and better feel. However, I have plenty of clearance issues with parts that were also meant for a V6 (Safety loop, suspension drop etc). So yes, if you are just wanting to change your car's shaft, this is a good product. But if you are adding any new components that would affect the under body of your car, you should do a lot of research. And for that reason, I give it only 4 stars

    smooth ride

    fairly easy to install even without a lift. looks great even if you will almost never see it. improves responce and ride quality. bought it mainly for safety. just be carefull if you are a daily driver/racer. installed the bmr tunnel brace with safety loop as well. ended haveing to take off the loop after a couple of weeks because if you hit a big enough bump, the shaft will hit the top of the loop.

    GREAT PRODUCT

    I installed this driveshaft only a couple months after i had my car. after hearing about the problems, i wasn't going to take any chances lol. That being said, gives the driver a great piece of mind. The driveshaft is only about 10lbs lighter than the stock one but still makes a difference. The installation was simple, just tough to get the factory bolts off. undo all 8 bolts(4 a side) and pop on the new one, simple as that. The car is also able to drive and coast at a higher gear with lower rpms so its great for mpg. throttle response was a little peppier and overall better quality driving.

    Less weight = smoother response. The car accelerates much smoother and faster now. You can even keep it in top gear at much lower rpm than before to get better fuel economy. Seems to even shift better. Great product, great for peace of mind.

    Like a Different Car

    I just replaced my stock driveshaft with this one as well as adding 3.73 gears and rebuilding the differential. All I can say is wow! The car is quieter, smoother, more responsive and actually up in town my gas mileage improved .3 mpg even with the aggressive gear change from the stock 2.73. I have not updated my tune yet so my comparison is on the same car before and after. I will change the tune tomorrow all the changes we have made but this is a must have upgrade and also makes your ride safer and now you can get the 113 mph governor removed as well.

    One piece driveshat (Aluminum)

    Installed by my Ford Dealer in under an hour. I could've done it myself, but I have reward points at this dealer and I ended up opaying just $36 for the install. Right away I can feel a difference. The driveshaft is quieter and smoother, and the less weight is always a plus. Yes, I'd recommend this as one of the first mods new Mustyang owners should do.

    the PERFECT driveshaft

    i installed the new drive-shaft that comes for the manual and the automatic, it fit perfect and held up over 140 mph with my 3.73 gears. Before the install my auto would bang through 1st to 2nd gear, this drive-shaft also fixed that somehow. The install took me 30 minutes by myself with only jack stands and ramps.

    Aluminum Driveshaft

    I bought the driveshaft because like everyone else, I watched the videos on Youtube and didn't want to blow up. Also, a significantly lighter driveshaft made of aluminum is sure to perform better than the stock one. Once I got the driveshaft in the mail ( one day as always) I took it to a buddies house where we put my 2012 v6 on a lift and got started. The whole installation process took about an hour, however I was lucky to have the use of a lift. I could see the installation taking longer without one. After removing the old driveshaft, which wasn't a huge deal, we put some loctite on the bolts and put the new driveshaft on. Installation wasn't too complicated, only involving applying and releasing the emergency break so you can turn the driveshaft. Immediately you will notice some differences in the way the car drives. When you're cruising around town it feels more balanced and slightly more refined, to quote the guy from the other review. When you get on it, especially after shifts, you will notice more torque and slightly better acceleration. Overall a very good product and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a better ride and doesn't want to blow up in the triple digits!

    It refines the drivetrain. Smooths out vibration on decelaration on manual transmission. 19 pounds less weight, over stock 2 piece factory driveshaft (junk). Saftey, peace of mind. My mechanic installed in 20 minutes on a lift. I have a performace package car, 19 inch wheels, Pirelli P Zero 's. I just orderd my Bama tuner, goodbye speed limiter.

    Fits perfect

    Few things to say. First. Installation isn't a problem at all. If you have the right tools and maybe a second hand you're good to go within 20 minutes. Perfect fit and no problem at all. The only downside is that there isn't any information about how much torque should be used on the screws to tighten them. After a little research I found like 15 different opinions on how much to use. After installing the driveshaft you will recognize immediately that the car runs smoother and response is more direct than it was before. There only was one thing. Beginning at a certain speed (55 - 70 mph) there was a strange sound. After checking again the screws and using 75 lbs to tighten them the sound now is gone and I'm very happy with that purchase and love driving faster then 115 mph.

    Not a big difference

    Yeah, I can tell it's lighter than the stock one, but no mpg gains, not really a difference shifting other than maybe it's a little smoother shifting. But, hey, atleast if I ever have the urge to go over 115 I won't freak out worrying about the stock d.s. blowing! ;D
