    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 stock 2-piece driveshaft, weighing it at only 18 lbs and 7.2 oz, 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 2005 to 2010 GT and Bullitt Mustangs equipped with either a Manual or Automatic transmission.

    • While installing the driveshaft, you can install upper control arms to your vehicle. It would be an upgrade to your suspension but it is not necessary.

      Looks great

      This driveshaft is so much lighter than stock. Looks way better too. Went ahead and put a red driveshaft safety loop on at the same time just for good measures. Drives really smooth and a lil peppier. The stock driveshaft is just a bulky two piece monster. Really happy so far with it.

      DOA and warranty claim problems

      Bought one in late '16, and it fit perfectly. Unfortunately, that was the best of it. The CV joint was defective out of the box, and caused problems from day one. Drove a few hundred miles and couldn't fix it. Unfortunately the manufacturer dragged their feet in processing an RMA, and other issues happened (not their fault) and then was denied any warranty claim DSS then kept the driveshaft due to the obscene repair bill they quoted, and my refusal to pay it when I had tried getting it repaired in time for the warranty. NOT happy, though I appreciate American Muscle's shipment of the original product, and that they're not responsible for making these. Buyer beware.

      One Piece awesomeness

      Finally got the one piece drive shaft installed and broken in, all I can say is wow! Smooth drive ability and great on acceleration. I purchased this mod to compliment my 4.10 gears and short shifter. My 07 GT launches like a beast now. Thanks AM for a great purchase and product.

      YEEOWZA!!!

      I honestly find it a little shocking how much this one item woke my ride up. Definitely pulls much harder than I expected it to and my tires bark through 1st - 3rd gears and oddly enough it seems to have added about 12 mpg which is nice too.... not that mpg is much of a consideration in a mustang GT but it is a nice little bonus as well. Definitely worth it, and very easy to install in about 45 minutes if you take your time.

      Tighter Driveline

      The driveshaft fits great, and I haven't noticed any vibration with it to speak of, but I have not really got it on the highway yet. The drive-line feels a LOT tighter and the normal "clunk" is gone from the two piece. It feels smoother when shifting as well. There is also less noise in the car too (but I had a failing carrier bearing on my original one). I don't notice any performance gains other than the tighter feel (which is nice). Overall I like it, but I only replaced my original driveshaft due to necessity.

      The Driveshaft Shop Aluminum 1 pice Drive Shaft

      We replaced our 2 piece drive shaft that had over 175000 miles on it since we race a lot and saw a lot of drive shaft failures at the end of the season big money races. The 1 piece was the only modification that we did in the beginning of the year and the car picked up a tenth in the 1/4 when compared with the same air.

      No vibrations

      Put this in when I changed my clutch, so far so good. I don't have the irritating vibrations like I had with the stock driveshaft anymore. Not sure of the performance gains, but seems to get the power to the tires pretty good. It only takes maybe an hour to put in once you have the car set up. Straight forward install.

      Good Quality

      I primarily installed this because there is a lot of drive train slop with a two piece shaft, and it slows the reaction time of getting power to the wheels. It should have come this way from the factory. This shaft takes up both vibration issues, and the normal free play associated with a two piece shaft. DSS build quality is great, and the install was simple. Be sure to perform the required measurement at the diff, but I imagine most of the time, there are no issues. While I don't think there is an actual performance gain, I think most people notice that the power is used more efficiently, getting it to the ground quicker. I did this in conjunction with a short shifter, and came away with a different car. I would recommend this upgrade, without question.
