    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.

    The video mentions a pinion flange adapter? What is that? Does it come with the drive shaft? Do I buy it separately?

    Mike

    • The Ford Performance One Piece Driveshaft is a direct replacement for 2011-2014 GT Mustangs. The flange adapters are already installed on the Driveshaft. You will not need to purchase any other parts in order to have a proper install.

      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.

      Ford performance driveshaft

      Awesome! Perfect for eliminating the drive shaft slop that the OEM two piece shaft has. My 5.0 defanitaly feels/drives better. Just like everyone said, this should of come stock. The quality of the driveshaft is also good, and is easy to install. Direct replacement, you don't have to install the pinion flange like on some of the other driveshafts.

      Take a load off

      Comparing this to the factory should be pretty easy... I can hold the drive shaft in one hand. The aluminum is much better than the factory steel that is all rusted and clunky. I have yet to install it but will update once that is done in a couple of months when the car comes out of hibernation.... Not sure on performance gains as they vary from review to review but I was just looking to get rid of the clunking noise that the 2 piece makes. Looking at other reviews it looks like it will take a half a day to do the swap and also install the safety loop that I got to go with it. Dave

      Ditch the factory two piece.

      Easy install without removing 3 inch exhaust. Balanced very nicely, and no more delay from a stand still. Still "clunks" a little bit, but I suspect it could also be a design flaw in the Mt 82 6 speed trans. Well worth it. No worries of the 2 piece exploding on me.

      Just a bit of a difference

      I know it's just a drive shaft. I know it is about 12 to 15 pounds lighter. Its technically not a power adder. But, I felt a difference when I let out the clutch. Less vibration. It's just a better driveshaft than stock. So... my car is better for it. Glad I added it. Car is now stronger for when I throw my Pro Charger on it.

      Worthy addition!

      I installed this while replacing my over axle pipes, so access was easy. I have been adding parts to the car that I think, ideally, it should have come with. The stock driveshaft is not the most elegant or light design. My review is after first impressions - there's definitely a seat-in-the-pants difference, I didn't notice more noise (I also have a billet shifter bracket, and that added a slight amount) and have not noticed any vibration (haven't gone above 100 mph yet). Carefully inspect the part when you get it: damage in shipping will likely result in vibration because the balance is gone. Tip: you might want someone who can apply the parking brake while you're torqueing down the bolts. It took me a long time because I kept having to crawl out from under the car and go back to reset the parking brake, rotate the shaft, rinse, repeat (and I added the install time of the over axle pipes). With two people, you might be able to do this in 1-2 hrs.
