Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey guys, Stephanie with here with an overview of the Driveshaft Shop's Aluminum One Piece Driveshaft, for 2005 to 2014 GT Mustangs that have a T56 trans upgrade. In this video, we're gonna talk about a few topics when it comes to this driveshaft. We're gonna talk about the materials and construction of the driveshaft, the benefits of upgrading and of course the install. I'll talk more about this later, but the install here is going to be a two out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter. The '05 to '14 Mustangs came from the factory with a two-piece driveshaft which is inherently gonna have some weaknesses. This aluminum one-piece driveshaft from the Driveshaft Shop is gonna be a good option for anyone that's upgraded their trans to a T56 and that's looking to get rid of those weaknesses that the stock driveshaft has. So, the Driveshaft Shop does offer an aluminum one-piece driveshaft for those of you out there that still have the stock trans, and unless you have or you're getting a T56 trans, that's the driveshaft that you're gonna wanna check out. This driveshaft is only for the T56 trans applications. So, one-piece driveshaft is a huge upgrade over the factory two-piece driveshaft for a few reasons. An aluminum one-piece driveshaft will be stronger, it's gonna shut some extra pounds from your Mustang and improve drivability. This is gonna be stronger because you're eliminating an inherently weak spot in the factory driveshaft due to the two-piece design. And you're also gonna be using stronger materials all the way around. Keep in mind that the shaft is made from a certified 6061 aluminum that's rated the 900 horsepower. And when it comes to weight savings, let me remind you that these are pounds that will be shaved directly off of your Mustang vocational maths. When you take that much weight off of your drive train, you're gonna immediately notice a few things. Faster rising throttle response and even some faster quarter mile turns. You'll also notice that the one-piece driveshaft will eliminate the vibrations that are commonly found with the factory two-piece driveshaft, so that's where you're gonna notice improvements in drivability. So, overall you're looking at improvements such as faster revs, better throttle response and less vibrations as you're continuing driving. One thing that's different about this driveshaft is the CB location. The CB is located in the rear on this driveshaft which means that you won't need to change the pinion angle on lower cars. The CB is also modified. It's 108 millimeter and it has a different boot and grease combination. It's a high speed CB and this paired with the upgraded front new joint on the trans end, helps to make this a good upgrade over the factory unit. When it comes to price, you can expect to spend between $400 and $500 for this driveshaft, which really is the only one of its kind on the sight. This driveshaft is less expensive than the options for the factory trans, and it still offers the same benefits for those of you that are upgrading your trans. As far as the install goes for this, I said earlier that this is gonna be a two out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter. You're gonna expect to spend about two hours getting the install completed. I will say that you should have some knowledge or someone to help you that's done this before. I wouldn't really recommend this as a job for the first time wrencher. You're gonna need a handful of tools to get the job done including a torque wrench, and as usual a lift would be your best bet, but the job can be done on jack stands as well. You can plan on dropping your exhaust from the mid pipe back, and that's gonna give you your access to drop the driveshaft. There's a factory driveshaft safety loop that you need to get out of the way, and then you just have your bolts of both the front and rear of the driveshaft to break free after you mark the driveshaft. Once the stock one is out, you can install the pinion-plated after on the rear of the differential pinion plan. You get the new drive shaft into car, with the pinion air plunge first. Of course, a second set of hands can help you remove and install the driveshaft since this can be a little hard to do on your own. Wrapping things up here with the DSS one piece driveshaft, this is an aluminum one-piece drive shaft that's gonna be stronger and lighter than the factory driveshaft. And it's for S197's for the T56 trans. As always, I suggest you check it out more online for yourself right here at

Unleash Performance. You know your 2005-2014 GT Mustang can do more. This one-piece 3.5" driveshaft from The Driveshaft Shop helps release that potential. Rated at up to 900 horsepower and 3450 ft/lbs of torque, you can install this unit and feel the difference immediately!

Lose the Vibration. It's a well-known complaint in the Mustang world: harmonic vibrations. You hear it and you feel it, too. Determined to solve this dreaded problem, the pros at The Driveshaft Shop tried many options before finally hitting on this revolutionary solution. The engineers used their collective experience, as well as some top-notch equipment, to create this major torque-transmitting, vibration-free, super strong, and stable driveshaft.

The Key Is the Balancing. Each driveshaft that The Driveshaft Shop produces is dynamically balanced in house at over 9000 RPMs on one of the most technologically sophisticated balancing machines available anywhere in the industry. This means the driveshaft can be counted on for matchless consistency and reliability.

CV Location. Because the CV is located in the rear, you won't need to change the pinion angle on lowered cars. The CV is a custom modified, high-speed 108mm with a special boot and grease combination to ensure lasting performance. This, along with the 3.5" 6061-T6 aluminum and 1350 front u-joint that mounts right up to the transmission, means a supreme driveshaft for your Mustang.

Application. This 3.5" Driveshaft Shop Aluminum One Piece Driveshaft is specifically designed for use on 2005-2014 GT Mustangs that are upgrading to a T-56 manual 6-speed transmission. Does not fit stock applications.

Should I go with this application or the Driveshaft Shop one piece model no. 14104 for my '14 GT?


  • If your Mustang as a T56 manual 6-speed transmission this will work for you. However if you have the stock transmission, you will need item #14104.

  • You can give your VIN number to your local Ford Dealership to clarify exactly what transmission you have so that you get the correct driveshaft.
