    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.

    5 Top Rated Questions

    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?

    • Typically if you are on just lowering springs, you would not have to make any adjustments for the The Driveshaft Shop Aluminum One Piece Driveshaft (11-14 GT, BOSS)

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

    • 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.

      Unbelievable results

      Before installing this, I always had a jarring or a bucking when I would slowly let off the clutch. Or just shifting gears. With this installed, there is absolutely no bucking or anything! Now, I bought and installed the driveshaft for racing purposes, but that “fix” alone was worth the penny! Oh, and the throttle response is astounding!

      One piece aluminum driveshaft

      This might take you a while on jack stands, if your car has close to 100k miles the bolts holding the stock driveshaft are gonna be held on with pure hatred. Gonna need lots of rusty bolt spray, a hammer, and a strong impact gun. Gonna need some muscles too.

      Should have been my first upgrade

      Solid build; snug fit; looks great; I can definitely feel the difference in responsiveness. By myself, it took me about a day to finish but had a few breaks. Had a slight issue with fitment into rear end but it was due to some build up that couldn't really be seen. Used some brake cleaner and cloth to clean it and then driveshaft went right in.

      seat of the pants smoothness

      After replacing the 2 piece driveshaft on my 2008 GT500 with the Driveshaft shop carbon fiber driveshaft and noticing the huge difference in driveline smoothness and increased ease in shifting, I decided to replace the 2 piece driveshaft in my 2014 GT convertible. The 2014 convertible has an automatic transmission, so I decided to go with the less expensive driveshaft shop aluminum 1 piece driveshaft. I have noticed the small driveshaft vibration is completely gone and shifting feels quicker and smoother. I am a conservative driver and do not push my vehicles so I cannot speak to performance gains. However, anytime you reduce that much weight from your rotating mass, there are performance advantages. I am very satisfied with the Driveshaft store's aluminum driveshaft. As a sidenote, I had a local automotive service shop install the aluminum driveshaft. The install was done in approximately one hour.

      Very nice product!

      The part looks fantastic! Nice and light. The installation is very easy. I was worried about the critical measurement from the flange to shaft.( 3 3/4 to 3 1/4 ) We got a 4 in measurement with suspension hanging, then 3 7/8 with a jack under the rear. But that was at the bottom the middle and top were in spec. This makes me wonder if the pinion angle is now off.

      This is way better than the heavy stock two piece driveshaft. I've had it installed for 3 days now and everything is smooth with no noises. It took me about 3 hours to install by myself with hand tools, 2 jack stands, and a hydraulic jack.

      Definitely better than the stock two-piece driveshaft. Slightly better acceleration and drive-train feels smoother overall. Not necessarily a game-changer in terms of performance for the price; would recommend other mods first.

      Clunks and Bangs

      I couldn't wait to get this Driveshaft. After about 200 miles I started getting a Clunk/Banging noise when taking off, shifting and pulling in the driveway. I talked to American Muscle Support about the issue, and was told they could not help me. I needed to contact the Driveshaft shop for help! The Driveshaft Shop told me to send it in for repair, and I would have to pay the shipping cost myself. For 700.00 dollars and all the hype this unit should work flawlessly! VERY DISAPOINTED!!! I wish I would have done more homework and purchased something without problems. Now I am committed. I hope there are no more issues when I get it back. I cannot afford more shipping costs!!!

      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.
