    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with an overview of the Ford Performance one-piece driveshaft for 2011 to 2014 GT Mustangs. In this video, we're gonna talk about a few topics when it comes to this driveshaft. We're gonna talk about the materials and construction of the driveshaft, the benefits of upgrading, and, of course, the install. I'll talk more about this later, but the install here is gonna be a two out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter. The '11 to '14 Mustangs came from the factory with a two-piece driveshaft, which is inherently gonna have some weaknesses. This aluminum one-piece driveshaft from Ford Performance is gonna be a good option for anyone looking to get rid of those weaknesses for performance, drivability, or just peace of mind reasons. This is also one of the more affordable options when it comes to driveshaft upgrades for these cars, so it's a good option for those of you out there that are budget-minded. A one-piece driveshaft is a huge upgrade of the factory two-piece driveshaft for a few reasons. An aluminum one piece driveshaft will be stronger. It's gonna shed some extra pounds from your 'Stang and improve drivability. This is gonna be stronger because you're eliminating an inherently weak spot in the factory driveshaft due to the two-piece design. And you're also gonna be using stronger materials all around. Keep in mind that the driveshaft is made from a certified 6061 aluminum. And when it comes to weight savings, let me remind you that these are pounds that will be shaved directly off of your Mustang's rotational mass. When you take that much weight off of your drive-train, you're gonna immediately notice a few things, faster revs and throttle response and even some faster quarter-mile times. You'll also notice that the one-piece driveshaft will eliminate the vibrations that are commonly found with the factory two-piece driveshaft. So that's where you're gonna notice improvements in drivability. Overall, you're looking at improvements such as faster revs, better throttle response, and less vibrations or clunking when you're driving. I mentioned earlier that this is one of the more budget-friendly options when it comes to upgrading your driveshaft. You can expect to spend between $600 and $700 for this Ford Performance option. But you also have the choice of going with DSS or Dana. But you can expect to pay a little bit more for those other options. Of course, options like the DSS carbon fiber driveshaft are gonna offer a different set of benefits. So just make sure that you're shopping for what you need from your driveshaft, whether it be a monster upgrade or a more simple one. As far as the install goes for this, I said earlier that this is gonna be a two out of three wrenches in the difficulty meter. And you can expect to spend about two hours getting the install completed. I will say that you should have some knowledge or someone to help you that's done this before. I wouldn't really recommend this as a job for the first-time wrencher. You're gonna need a handful of tools to get the job done, including a torque wrench. And, as usual, a lift would be your best bet, but the job can be done on jack stands as well. [inaudible 00:02:35] plan on dropping your exhaust from the mid-pipe back, and that's gonna give you access to drop the driveshaft. There is a factory driveshaft safety loop that you need to get out of the way. And then you just have your bolts at both the front and rear of the driveshaft to break free after you mark the driveshaft. Once the stock boy is out, you can install the pinion plate adapter on the rear of the differential pinion flange and get the new driveshaft into the car with the pinion flange end first. Of course, a second set of hands can help you remove and install the driveshaft, since this can be a little hard to do on your own. Wrapping things up here with the Ford Performance one-piece driveshaft, this is an aluminum one-piece driveshaft that's gonna be stronger and lighter than the factory driveshaft. As always, I suggest you check it out more online for yourself right here at americanmuscle.com.

    Less Weight, More Power. See quicker 1/4 mile times at the track and improve the overall driving performance of your 2011-2014 GT Mustang by upgrading to a Ford Racing One Piece Aluminum Driveshaft. Designed to be lighter and stronger than the clunky 2-piece stock driveshaft, this One Piece Aluminum Driveshaft will reduce the rotating mass of your drive train allowing you to put more power to the pavement.

    Extra Clearance. This light weight Ford Racing one piece aluminum driveshaft features a 3.5" diameter design giving you the extra clearance needed to avoid interference that can happen on lowered Mustangs equipped with the stock 4" shaft.

    Ford Racing Quality. Constructed from 3.5" diameter 0.125 inch wall thickness 6061-T6 aluminum tubing for strength, this one piece Ford Racing 1430 mm (56.299") long driveshaft features 1350 Series Universal Joints with 1350 series flange yokes front and rear with no adaptor required for installation.

    Application. This Ford Racing One Piece Aluminum Driveshaft is specifically designed for use on 2011 to 2014 GT or BOSS Mustangs.

      Excellent driveshaft

      Just had this driveshaft and Magnaflow axle back mufflers professionally installed by a excellent Mustang shop in Benson NC. I am a 55 year old guy who loves Mustangs and I really enjoy my man toy "Lenny" , my 2012 Kona blue Mustang GT. I was hesitant at first to flip the money but it turned out to be a great choice. It is definitely smoother, you can sense better acceleration and the mufflers sound great. The car no feels and sounds like a muscle car. I also had the Steeda CAI installed last year along with an STC tune as well as a Ford racing short throw shifter. Last but not least, I also had them install the Steeda lower control arms to combat wheel hop tendencies. All in all, I am well pleased with the end result.

      Great upgrade

      My stock drive shaft started to fall apart so I upgraded to the ford 1 piece. It’s a great upgrade and way lighter than stock! It’s made of high quality and can withstand the abuse. You can slightly notice the weight difference when getting into the power

      Best bang for your buck and top notch quality.

      Gotta love the quality and piece of mind I got, by installing this driveshaft. I have missed my Cayote to 250whp more and this is the perfect mod to keep it all working in Harmony. Lightweight, very sturdy, absolutely NO noise. I thought I had vibration and it turned out to be bad wheel balancing. Would strongly recommend it.

      Ford Performance one piece drive shaft.

      Its a good idea to replace the factory two piece shaft with this one. It works very well with the Barton short throw shiftier that I replaced a few months ago. I installed this drive shaft on my lift and it went without issues around the kooks stainless exhaust .

      Worth while Mod

      Had this driveshaft installed with a safety loop and two things I noticed, first was the lack of the clunking noise and second was the car spooled up faster under acceleration. This driveshaft was considerably lighter than the stock unit and is a quality unit.

      No more klunking two part drive shaft

      I made the investment of said product for I do love to drive my Mustang GT. I would have to agree with the late great Carroll Shelby how started the GT line. I purchased my ride to drive it not to keep it in the garage and it is and great product, it no longer has the vibration of a two part drive shaft and the response is great .

      Loss of confidence at racing RPM's.

      Construction seems reasonable quality. Trans mount side is no problem. Had to make special tool to be able to install fasteners and torque to spec on the differential side. No tool head clearance was taken into consideration. Has held over a dozen 3000 RPM clutch dump launches with no noticeable loss of fastener torque or damage. At high RPM (near and 1000 below rev limiter) car shakes and significantly louder than with the stock 2-piece. No confidence with the high RPM vibration and noise. Something will come apart soon. No warranty from Ford Performance.

      Very nice.

      I replaced another more expensive alum shaft with this one and couldn’t be happier. Installs easily and seems to be balanced well, and it’s quiet. I will probably be be buying another one soon for my daughters car. Skip the more expensive shafts and just get one of these.

      Ford one piece driveshaft

      First of all great service americanmuscle!! You are definitely going to need extra hands to help with this... the directions are right on but trying to install this bye yourself is difficult and why I say this is because the two hex head bolts have to get started on the rear first and don’t try to put them in when you have the driveshaft recessed in the proper spot because the bolt heads are to big to go straight in so you have to have already installed on the driveshaft shaft to get them started so plan on extra hands like I say took me a solid hour with help.

      Ford Performance Driveshaft

      I am very pleased with the Ford Performance Driveshaft compared to the factory one. It took me about 2 1/2 hours to get out the old one and install the new one. I'm not a mechanic and I did it on Jack stands in my garage. As soon as I took it out for a test drive I noticed the difference right away. The car wanted to take off and there was no more vibration from the factory driveshaft. It was like a whole new animal. I would definitely recommend this driveshaft to anyone who's looking for a good upgrade to their stang.

      Nice driveshaft!

      Fits great paired with the Stifflers driveshaft safety loop but could only use the top 2 holes (out of 4) to have enough clearance for the loop to fit around the driveshaft. I installed this into my 2014 with an auto....only suggestions I have is during shipping the slip yoke gets smashed in and the driveshaft will seem short. Try to get a few bolts started on both ends to draw the slip yoke out. Also chase/blow out all the bolt holes because of dirt/old thread locker in the threads. Overall very ha ppt with it. For me I like that it doesn't have a CV joint.
