Review & Installation Video

Hey I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and this is my detailed breakdown of the drive shaft shop one piece carbon fiber and aluminum drive shaft available for the 2005 to 2014 Mustang GT, all 11-14 V6s and the 2007-2012 Shelby GT 500. For all intents and purposes either the carbon fiber or aluminum one piece drive shaft would be a massive upgrade over the factory two-piece drive shaft in just about every way with the only exception of course being cost. Now before I lay down all the benefits of switching to a one-piece drive shaft, go ahead and click on that link below to subscribe to our YouTube channel if you haven't done so already. That way you can see more detailed product overviews like these drive shafts here in addition to other great Mustang bids that are certainly worth the watch. So the drive shaft shop has been around for over 30 years designing and producing quality drive shafts that have been used on everything from record breaking drag cars to some of our very own project cars like Project MMD and Project Coyote. Currently on the site, we are offering both the carbon fiber version and the lightweight aluminum version which again will be a huge improvement over that stocker not only in weight savings but also strength, drivability and performance. First up, let's start with the most obvious benefit of going with a one-piece drive shaft, weight savings. Now I do have the factory 2014 Coyote drive shaft here with me. So let's throw that on the scale and see what we're looking at. All right so the factory two-piece drive shaft is weighing in at roughly 37-1/2 pounds. Take this off. Now let's see what we're looking at with the aluminum drive shaft. So with the one-piece drive shaft, the aluminum version, we're weighing in at 18-1/2 pounds roughly. So we'll take this off and throw the carbon fiber version on and see what the difference is. And the carbon fiber version is just over 17 pounds right now. So there you go. Just by going with a one-piece lightweight aluminum or carbon fiber drive shaft you're roughly going to shave almost 20 pounds off your Mustang's rotational mass. By shedding that much weight off the drivetrain, you're going to notice a couple of different things, quicker revs and improved throttle response and you should even see slightly faster 60 foot and quarter mile times. Another benefit is that you should notice slightly less vibrations that can sometimes be associated with two-piece drive shafts. Another massive benefit is that the one piece drive shafts are just inherently stronger than the factory two-piece drive shaft. For one, you are eliminating the weak spot in the factory two-piece drive shaft and you're also going to be using stronger materials all around from the shaft itself to the CV and U joints much superior compared to the factory counterpart. First up, let's start with the lightweight aluminum version. Now if you want you can click on the link below to head back to our site if you're not there already to learn a little bit more about this guy. Now first up, the lightweight version is going to be a little less expensive compared to the carbon fiber version but will still offer all of the same performance benefits I just talked about a little earlier. The shaft itself has been made from a light weight 6061 T6 aluminum while the CV joint and U joints themselves have been made from extremely strong 300M alloy steel. This is the same steel used in aircraft landing gear and other applications where strength is an absolute must. The carbon fiber version on the other hand is slightly more expensive compared to the aluminum version but you do get a little bit more for your money. In fact, just click the link below if you want to learn more about this guy. Carbon fiber construction does weigh slightly less compared to the aluminum version as we just saw with our scale and when it does come to rotational mass, every little bit helps. Another plus with the carbon fiber version is that even though both options have been rated at 900 horsepower at the rear wheels that carbon fiber construction is going to have a higher degree of torsion and a higher tensile strength. So that basically means the carbon fiber material can handle much more abuse before breaking when compared to the aluminum version. Now even though the carbon fiber is technically stronger in that regard, it does have better elasticity allowing it to twist ever so slightly on those hard launches reducing some of the shock on your drivetrain, your gears and your axles. Because it does have the ability to dampen some of these noises, everyday driving should be a little quieter and free of noise vibration and harshness when compared to that aluminum unit. Getting either option installed on to your Mustang is actually pretty straightforward if you've never done one before but I will say it makes life a lot easier if you have a lift on hand in addition to another set of hands. On the other hand, if you want to do things the old-fashioned way and get on your back underneath some jack stands, well it can be done that way too but just be sure to leave yourself two hours to get the job done and make sure you have a good quality fork wrench on hand just to make sure everything is according to spec. Either way if you do have any questions about the install or about the drive shafts themselves, feel free to give us a call or shoot us an e-mail. Even though upgrading the factory two-piece drive shaft in your ride can be a little pricey, the savings in weight and general improvements overall are worth every single penny especially if your car sees a lot of track time. So be sure to check out the drive shaft shop options for your ride available right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

Light Weight. Lighter and stronger than the factory 2-piece driveshaft (19 lbs versus the stock 39 lbs), The Driveshaft Shop's One Piece Mustang Driveshaft greatly reduces rotating mass to improve your Pony's 1/4 mile track times.

Superior Quality. Constructed from 3.5" diameter 6061-T6 aluminum tubing this driveshaft features a 1350 front u-joint with flange to mount directly to the transmission and a 28 spline 108mm 6-bolt rear CV joint made from an all new 300M material.

Extra Clearance. This light weight one piece aluminum driveshaft features a 3.5" diameter design giving extra clearance needed to avoid interference that can happen on lowered Mustangs equipped with a 4" shaft.

High Speed Balanced. Balanced on one of the most sophisticated balancing machines in the industry, at up to 9500RPM (revolutions per minute) this one piece driveshaft is rated for use up to 900 horsepower.

Application. This One Piece Aluminum Driveshaft from The Driveshaft Shop is designed specifically for use on 2011 to 2014 GT and BOSS Mustangs, equipped with either a 6-speed Manual or Automatic transmission.

Shipping Note. This product can not be shipped to an APO/FPO, Guam or US Virgin Island addresses.

Will this drive shaft affect any of the stock parts on the mustang or a automatic mustang

  • Thank you for your question about the Driveshaft Shop Aluminum One Piece Driveshaft (11-14 GT, BOSS). While this driveshaft is manufactured for use with high power performance Mustangs, you can use it without worry of it creating any issues with factory parts.

Is anyone running this on an automatic and have noticed difference in throttle response or the lag? Thanks

Syed

  • I have had personal experience with the The Driveshaft Shop Aluminum One Piece Driveshaft. I notice my factory driveshaft almost had a slight hesitation in it that through the automatic 6r80 transmission is noticeable in when first pressing on the gas from a stand still. After installing the The Driveshaft Shop Aluminum One Piece Driveshaft I noticed that noise and hesitation had reduced to almost nothing. This is definitely not a huge performance increasing mod, but will definitely strengthen your drive train to handle more power.

The Driveshaft Shop website states that due to the CV joint, the pinion angle doesn't need to be adjusted with this product. For those of you that installed this on a lowered car (mine is -1.5") did you have to make an adjustment?

I have a 2014 Roush stage 3 phase 2 mustang The car was purchased from the dealership with everything done to it. Does Roush use the same 2 piece driveshaft as a regular 5.0 ? or do they upgrade it at the factory ? and what speed is this driveshaft rated for ?

urbo

  • Unfortunately we do not have the spec sheets on the 2014 Roush stage 3 phase 2 so we would not have the information on if it came with a 1 piece or stock 2 piece driveshaft. Check under your vehicle to make sure you do infact have either the 1 piece or 2 piece. However this driveshaft is rated for upwards of 900HP and 3450ft/lb of torque.

    DSS one piece

    I got this put on at the same time as a new clutch. I am still in the break in period for the clutch so I have only got the car up to 4500 rpm. Even only from 2-4500 rpm, and off the clutch, there was a noticeable difference in how quickly the engine revs. I can't wait to really get on it since at every gear the car just feels more responsive.

    Just installed - super impressed!

    Product arrived in perfect condition. Came with excellent instructions, although not really needed. (Plenty of videos online too). Quality appears to be excellent and it fit like a glove. I had no difficulty installing this by myself with the car only on jack stands in my garage. In fact, removing the old one was more difficult than installing the new. That being said, I did encounter one near miss when installing it. The rear adaptor flange is a very snug fit. Take your time, tap it in gently with a rubber mallet, ensuring the bolt holes are lined up, and be sure to tighten the bolts in a correct pattern. The supplied bolts are an usual size (7 mm allen head). They will turn with a 1/4" allen head, but you run the real risk of stripping them when the going gets tight. And it did on mine. Thankfully, I used stop-work on myself and realized it was a metric size allen head before I fubar'ed it. These are probably not fasteners you want to use compressed air. Still overall fit is 5 stars. I give it 4 stars for bang for buck - mostly because I consider anything near $1000 to just be expensive. I haven't rated the performance gain yet because the car is still on stands in my garage for a simultaneous suspension kit upgrade. I cant wait to drive it - once I check the pinion angle, of course!

    Slight performance increase; peace of mind

    Driven with this aluminum shaft for about 40000 miles. No problem with it. Performance gain is slight but noticeable. For a price of over 700 dollars, this is worth it for the peace of mind it gives regarding the 2 pieces shaft breaking. If not for the peace of mind, I would not pay 700 for the slight performance gain. If you are looking for performance gain only, then getting the final drive gears would make more sense.

    This shaft has gone hand in hand with the new braided clutch line and barton shifter and bracket. The car revs faster, accelerates faster and the ride is smoother all around. but be warned this install is kind of a pain in the rear, but it is doable in the driveway.

    Got To Get It!

    I have been building up my 2014 Mustang GT 5.0 in preparation for the Roush Phase II blower. I recently purchased a Drive Shaft Shop drive shaft. The fit was perfect and gives that little bit of extra clearance that can be vital! The gain was very good as it helps existing horse power get to the wheels where it counts. The drive shaft installs in a rather easy manner that takes 2-3 hours depending on mechanical ability. It has NO irritating vibration and is made with the highest quality standards. If you are looking to utilize your existing horse power to its fullest potential the DSS aluminum drive shaft is a must! I would highly recommend this product as a great add on that gives the most bang for the buck!

    Don't Hesitate

    I have 2013 GT daily driver that I'm cautious to make mods to. This is the drive shaft Ford should of installed in the first place. After the install, it was as if I had been driving with the Emergeny break partially on before and I finally released it. Don't hesitate, the fit is perfect and the quality is top notch. I completed the install in an afternoon, by myself on jack stands, it's doable.

    Excellent Drive Shaft

    With a recent tune on my 2014 GT Mustang over 400 RWHP, it was recommended I replace the stock two piece drive shaft with a one piece. I can feel the transfer of power immediately. The shop who installed it said they had to take out part of the exhaust to install it since it was one piece.....but an easy job! U can feel a big difference in the ride already! Worth the investment!

    I was blown away by the difference this made over stock. Shifting was surprisingly much smoother, revved up quicker and easier, and the nasty clunk that I had from stock seems to be gone. Just over 100 miles since I put it on so hopefully it stays that way!

    Shaving weight to spin up rpms

    The product instructions could of been a bit clearer, let me help you out. Use the short bolts to bolt the adapter to the rear end flange then the long bolts to bolt the DS to the flamingo adapter. Get fit, a little pricey but after basic bolts on you have to turn to dropping rotating mass. Would be again, would recommend to a friend.
