    Review & Install Video

    Hey, everybody, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, here with my quick review of the 28 Spline Ford Racing One-Piece Aluminum Driveshaft, fitting all '79 and '95 5.0 L Mustangs and all '94 to '04 V6 Mustangs. The Ford Racing Aluminum Driveshaft would be a solid upgrade to any Fox Body or SN95 owner out there who is looking for a strong, lightweight, and affordable option from a trusted name like Ford Racing. This option might be for the owners out there who is suffering from some driveline vibrations and need an affordable fix or maybe for some owners out there who plan on subjecting his or her ride to some abuse at the drag strip, where the factory steel driveshaft can oftentimes be a weak link when paired with a sticky tire. Again, guys, this is Ford Racing's 28 Spline option. Again, it will fit the early 5.0 L V8s and all SN95 V6 Mustangs equipped with a T5, C4, or Tremec transmission. Essentially, guys, this is going to be a factory replacement for you here. Now, I do want to point out also that this driveshaft is compatible with both seven and a half and 8.8-inch rear ends. Now, one of the big benefits when making the switch to a lightweight aluminum driveshaft here, like the Ford Racing option, is the overall weight savings. Now, the Ford Racing option is going to be constructed from a high-quality T6 6061 aluminum, and besides being much stronger than that factory driveshaft, is also going to be far lighter. In fact, guys, the Ford Racing option is going to weigh in around the 13 or 14-pound range, as opposed to the heavy steel option, which is going to weigh in around 19 or 20 pounds. So this is a 6 to 7-pound weight savings or over 25%, which might not seem like a big deal to some of you guys, but you have to keep in mind this is rotational mass, big difference than just shedding dead weight from the car. Since the engine doesn't have to work as hard to spin the lighter driveshaft, it's going to be a little bit more efficient. So, overall, the car should rev a little quicker, should pull through the gears a little bit faster as well, and overall, you might even notice an improvement in your sixty-foot times, maybe even a tenth or two off of your quarter-mile time. So we do know that the Ford Racing option will be lighter than your factory driveshaft, and we know there's going to be some benefits along with that, but that's only one part of the equation here. This thing is also going to be a little bit stronger than that factory steel driveshaft, thanks, again, to that T6 6061 aluminum construction and the three and a half inch diameter seamless, too. Along with that T6 construction, the Ford Racing option is also packing some pretty burly 1330 U-joints here, which can sometimes be the weak spot with the factory driveshaft, definitely shouldn't be a concern here with the Ford racing option. Another big benefit when using the Ford Racing aluminum option here is the reduction in driveline vibrations that I see a lot of Fox Body or SN95 owners complain about here on the site. Now, with that factory steel driveshaft, sometimes it can become unbalanced or even slightly twisted, which does cause some driveline vibrations that do increase with speed. Now, by making the switch to this Ford Racing option, most, if not all, owners report back with great results and no more vibrations. Another benefit with going with an aluminum driveshaft from Ford Racing is the reduction in driveline vibrations that I see a lot of Fox owners or SN95 owners complain about here on the site. Now, what happens is a lot of times that factory steel driveshaft can be slightly unbalanced or even slightly twisted, which does cause some pretty nasty vibrations that do increase with speed. Now, when using this driveshaft or making the switch to this driveshaft, most, if not all, owners I see report back with great results and no more vibrations. But, perhaps, one of the best things about this particular driveshaft is the price. To get a brand new, well-built, one-piece aluminum driveshaft from a name like Ford Racing for around $300 is pretty solid overall and will be your most affordable option here on the site. Installing a new driveshaft for your Fox Body or SN95 is a pretty straightforward task overall, but, of course, all of your work is done underneath the car, so just make sure you have your jack and jack stands ready to go, race ramps or a lift if you have access to one. You're really only going to need some basic hand tools here, guys, including a 12 mm wrench, torque wrench is always a good idea, of course, and finally some blue Loctite for those driveshaft bolts. Now, to remove that factory driveshaft, you're really only going to remove the 4 12 mm bolts then get the new guy in place here. So, again, very straightforward stuff, pretty easy task overall. It should only take you about a couple of hours in the shop or garage, and so for that reason alone, we'll call this one a one out of three wrenches on my overall scale of difficulty. Just a quick heads up here on fitment, guys, this driveshaft will also work with all '96 to '04 automatic V6 Mustangs as long as the factory yoke is removed and reused with the new Ford Racing driveshaft. The one-piece Ford Racing Aluminum Driveshaft is going to be a solid upgrade for your street or strip Mustang, and here's why. The strength and weight savings benefits are a huge improvement over your factory steel driveshaft, and the price is going to be very hard to beat. So be sure to check out a driveshaft option for your ride right here at AmericanMuscle.com.

    how much does this weigh compared to the stock driveshafts in fox bodys?

    • I believe the weight of the Ford Racing Aluminum Driveshaft - 28 Spline (79-95 5.0L; 94-04 V6) comes in roughly around 18 pounds whereas the factory set up came in at a whopping 46lbs on a calibated scale. So the difference being more than double the weight of the aluminum driveshaft. Hope that helps.

    I just had a T5 put in my 87 GT. It is a 95 but the bell housing is out of a 96. Will this drive shaft work? The one in it now is not the original as it was too long. The one in it is either off balance, warped or set up with bad u-joints - vibrations at highway speeds shifting from 4th to 5th - even when clutch pedal is still pressed down.

    • The Ford Performance Aluminum Driveshaft may be too long for your setup using the 94+ Bell housing, as this will push the transmission back some.

      Good vibrations

      This driveshaft was the cure for the vibrations in my drivetrain. Well that and the fact the bolts were hand tight on the stocker....Either way I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend this shaft to anyone looking to upgrade from the stock steel one.

      light weight performance drive shaft

      I have owned a few foxbodys through out the years and I always short change myself when it came to the drive shaft. I recently bought a 93 GT and this time I purchased this bad azz Ford performance drive shaft. Install was a breeze. It is way lighter and beefier than the old rusty one. Well balanced and the motor seems to rev quicker...Couldnt be happier.

      Sorry its taken while to get this done. I injured my knee so I just got this installed . Probably one of the easier installs. Getting the car jacked up and on stands takes the most time. Please take the time to be safe. Great easy mod to add to the long list. I do all the work myself. that's the fun. I research online so I have a game plan before starting the job. Have fun

      VERY LIGHT

      I have a 99 v6 the install was very simple, spray down the four drive shaft bolt and the bolts will break easily, I would recommend to jack up the vehicle on four jack stands less fluid will leak. You will feel the big difference when you put the pedal to the metal, I have a slight problem when I hit reverse I hear a klonk noise is this normal or did I do something wrong would like feedback but other than that I am glad I made this purchase. On V6 had to change the yoke very simple process with a ball joint removal tool different style yoke on V6's

      This driveshaft is much lighter and just makes the underneath of the car look a lot better... I got this because balancing my old one cost more than half as much as just getting a all aluminum one. Made perfect sense to me.

      Definitely feel a difference

      I got the drivesaft because my car was shaking when I hit around 35mph so I figured my U-joints were proly shot. It actually ended up just being that one of my tie rods were just really done. Yes I felt really stupid, but I'm glad I got the driveshaft because I can feel that extra little bit of power I picked up from dropping the stock shaft and I don't have to step down too far on the pedal to get going anymore. Plus it only took me 10 maybe 15 mins to install with a floor jack and some stands, so I think it'd be a good buy for even a novice backyard mechanic.
