    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, weighing in at only 20 lbs and 11 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 2011 to 2014 V6 Mustangs equipped with either a manual or automatic transmission.

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

    What is the max RPM that this driveshaft is rated for? I know the 4" is rated for readline and 1000hp...I know the 3.5" is rated for 900hp-ish....but I haven't seen anything about the RPM ratings.

    Driveshaft shop ? The factory drive shaft has (4) front bolts and (4) rear on the DSS drive shaft I noticed it says it has (6) in the rear.....So what happens with the extra two holes?

    SterlingBeauty

    • There's an adapter that comes with the driveshaft that accepts the six bolt on the CV joint. This adapter also has the four bolt holes needed for the attachment to the pinion yoke.

    In discussions about driveshafts, the first thing to pop up is the 135mph detonation video. What top speed is the 3.7 automatic capable of with ONLY this driveshaft and the speed limiter removed? I can't find any threads or videos where ANYONE has pushed their cars after installing an aftermarket driveshaft.

    Boostdreamer

    • I don't have the one piece aluminum driveshaft, but have the Diablosport Trinity T1000 tuner with the speed limiter turned off and a six speed manual gear box with the pony package 3.31 rear end, Airaid cold-Air Intake. I did 235kph/146.7 mph, with a little gas to go, (one time only) so I would guess with the aluminum driveshaft it would do 150-155 or more with a standard gear set of 2.73! I hope my answer was some what informative, I wan't to get the one piece just for safety sakes!

    From the very beginning after the installation I have clearance in 28 spline 108mm 6-bolt rear CV joint, which generates vibrance during cruising. It is not possible to balanse the driveshaft... What can I do? Do you have any spare parts for this joint? GNK is the joint manufacturer, so I am surprised the company allowed such a clearance...

      Necessary Upgrade

      Pros: -Safety -Necessary when upgrading from 3.55 gears.(or FI) -Allows vehicle to go above 120 (tires permitted). -Lighter weight than stock. -Due to it being lighter weight car feels peppier. -Reduced clunk noise going into reverse/drive. -Reduced/Eliminated vibrations over certain speeds. -Gives more way for lowered vehicles with no Adj. UCA Cons: -Expensive (Reason for 4/5) ***Read JeffOden 's review. *** Some good info there.

      Expensive but worth it

      My speed limit is at 118 so with the stock drive shaft I would feel the strong vibration like if it wants to break. Soon as I installed the new driveshaft I broke it in for about a week and then topped it out at 118 and no vibration you can also feel the little extra acceleration it gives you expensive but worth it. Took about 2 hours myself and a friend.

      Fit perfectly

      The drive shaft fit perfectly and was easy to install, although having someone available to release and reapply the parking brake would have made it much quicker to install. This shaft replaced the OEM shaft that suffered a catastrophic failure at a high speed.

      So when I first received it the u-joint was seized, I contacted the company and they sent me another one so I had it installed, then I had a constant vibration and also a loud whining so I contacted the company and told me to re-index the cv , so took it to the shop again had it done and noticed a small improvement on vibration but was still just as loud, contacted the company and they told me I had to pay to ship it back to them so they could "fix" my new driveshaft........, so I contacted AM and they went way above and beyond and sent me a prepaid shipping ticket and gave me a full refund(they are the best people ever) and ultimatley I got the Sr performance shaft and its amazing

      WORTH THE WAIT

      Easy install, using a lift just unbolted and pulled out stock garbage driveshaft and replaced with this beauty. take your time on re-installing though. Don't skimp on loctite or forget to use a torque wrench. Last thing you want is to pole-vault your mustang. As for driveability, no noticeable noise difference but boy does this thing pull now. 3rd gear at 110 with power to spare was a pleasant surprise to say the least. Waiting on gear kit and rest of rear end build to really go at it but so far so good. Been planning this piece for a long time so ecstatic to finally have it in.

      Piece Of Mind

      If you have a V6 Mustang you probably have heard of the drive line snapping in half at high rates of speed. If you plan on doing any form of performance driving (and lets be honest, if you have a mustang you will be) then I would highly recommend getting this drive shaft. It is relatively easy to install if you have a lift and the right tools.

      Worth every dollar!

      Reducing rotational mass in the driveline made a significant difference in my 3.7s performance. RPMs build much quicker and reprogramming my SCT/Bama tuner to eliminate the factory speed limiter is thrilling to say the least! This aluminum driveshaft upgrade is very impressive, easy to install. I wish I had bought it years ago.

      Driveshaft

      Managed to install in a couple of hours with the lift of a friend. The installation was extremely easy, but a set of extra hands would be useful. So far so good. The driveshaft does produce a lot more noise than the stock one, but its not as bad. Overall, good buy, good quality product, waiting on a chance to step on the gas and go over 120 to see how good this piece holds up. You do notice faster acceleration, but nothing major that makes a big difference.
