    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?

    Im considering an upgrade of my 2014 GT, the only question is: What's the difference between 3,5'' and 4''? Can I install both of these?

    JakubD

    • You could install either a 3.5" or 4" model year compatible driveshaft on your 2014 GT, the difference being the diameter of the driveshaft itself. You would not be able to use both diameters at the same time, just one or the other depending on your preference. All things such as material and sidewall thickness being the same, the 3.5" may be lighter than a 4" driveshaft, while the 4" driveshaft may be stronger.

    I have a 2013 Mustang GT with an annoying vibration from 60-80mph(much more noticeable around 70-80mph). My question is, will this driveshaft help get rid of that vibration? (already balanced the wheels to no effect) I read a lot about these cars having drivetrain vibration which Ford apparently dismisses, and never really found a particular solution. Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you!

    RobertL

    • The Driveshaft Shop Aluminum One Piece Driveshaft may eliminate the vibration you're experiencing. However, there is no way for us to guarantee that the driveshaft is the root cause of your vibration. We recommend taking the car to a shop to diagnose the issue.

      Find something else.

      I installed this driveshaft in my 2012 gt auto and the noises it immediately made were terrible. Sounded like a 40 year old truck with toasted u-joints. I returned it to DSS where they rebuilt the cv and replaced the spline plug. I reinstalled it and it seemed fine for about 2000 miles where it started making noise again. I’m currently back running my stock driveshaft. A simple google search would have stopped me from buying this, but all I see on here is glowing reviews. Beware.

      Noise

      Today makes 1 yr that I purchased my drive shaft. Until a few days ago it was perfect. I started hearing an irritating noise when I left off the gas mainly between 3rd and 4th gear. I rarely drive my car being that I work 3 months at a time so its not many miles on the shaft. When I purchased the shaft I had the ford dealership to install it. Yesterday I left it at the Ford dealer to check it. They called me today and told me that everything is fine and the noise seems to be coming from or inside the shaft, but everything is safe. When I get time i'm going to let someone else drive it so I can see if I can hear it from the outside. If so I will remove it. As far as this new noise it's better than the stock shaft. If anyone else have this noise please respond or if there's a solution.

      Slop Greatly Reduced

      After swapping out the stock shifter (three tries till I got the one I liked), the one remaining annoyance I had was the driveline slop. This driveshaft made a huge difference. I used to ride the clutch a bit to keep slop in check. Did it myself at my shop, but really do recommend a helper. Anyone will do, otherwise there is a bunch of: put on hand brake, slide under car, loosen bolt, slide out from under car, let off brake, slide under car, turn driveshaft, slide out from under car, put on hand brake, slide under car, loosen bolt. Also, had to loosen midpipe bracket to get old shaft out.

      Throttle Reponse.

      Jacked up rear of car, put in jackstands and went too work. Did'nt have too remove exhaust at all. Went in smoothly. Could feel the difference right from the get go. As soon as I left the house I could feel it.. Less throttle to take off. Smoother but a little noise. Not bad though. I also have the JMS throttle reponse, which if you have a stick shift and you let off between shifts, when you hit the gas again there is no waiting. Set at 100. I can break Mickey-Thomson's street drag-radial's loose now with ease. It's Off The Hook. Power too spare.

      Driveshaft Nirvana

      A lot of these reviews mention a dramatic difference after installing the DSS shaft (night and day, etc.). I think most of that must come from enthusiasm over something new. The differences in feel, of which there are many, are subtle. But don't worry, subtle is good. I never realized just how much drivetrain slop there was in my car. With the new shaft, everything related to changes in the state of the drivetrain feels smoother. Clutch uptake is instantaneous, downshifts feel like buttuh, throttle changes are quicker; it just feels... right. Also, as noted in other reviews, a good number of pops and groans on clutch engagement have been eliminated. Very nice. An unexpected effect has been in the feel of the rear suspension. I thought I was imagining things at first, but it definitely feels less harsh going over bumps. I assume this has something to do with not only the decrease in the weight of the driveshaft (which is a sort of pseudo-suspension component in a solid axle car), along with the driveshaft's pivot point being moved farther away from the axle. It occurred to me that part of the reason Ford went with the 2-piece design must have been to remove some unsprung weight from the rear suspension. And while I doubt the DSS piece weighs much (if any) less than the back half of the OEM unit, the increased length gives the axle a bit more leverage when changing direction, effectively further reducing unsprung weight. As far as a noticeable effect on hard acceleration... I can't really tell. These 5.0 cars are so fast to begin with, it's impossible to "feel" a difference at full throttle. It does feel a bit lighter on its feet, however, and more direct, i.e. throttle inputs more directly translate into drivetrain response. The install was pretty dang easy. I managed it mostly by myself in about two hours with the car on jack stands, and I didn't need to remove the exhaust. I did have someone help me take the old shaft out the back and feed the new one in, but I'm sure I could've done that on my own, too, though with a bit more struggle and a few choice cuss words thrown in for good measure. I've owned my Mustang for more than five years and after installing the new DS I wish I would've done it years ago.

      Great Fit

      This driveshaft was a replacement for a Dyna Spicer STEEDA driveshaft that failed on me after many many runs. I was not mad at all that it failed due to the stress it was put through. I needed a higher rated driveshaft and went with DSS. The shaft is no different feel than the STEEDA one I had but it does have an adapter plate and a CV joint at the tail. Fit great, easy installation. Did not even have to remove the exhaust.

      A must have upgrade!!!

      I bought this for my 2013 GT that I'm putting a supercharger on and wanted a stronger driveshaft. Rated for up to 800 hp this is a straight shaft versus the stock split shaft . And if you have lowering Springs like I do they purposely made this 3 1/2 inches in diameter instead of four so it will fit. The overall response driving is night and day would definitely recommend even if you're not upgrading to massive horsepower.
