As you probably know i have a slow 2003 v6 automatic to which im adding an 1999 mustang
gt rear end with 3.73 gears... ive recently been offered to buy a new aluminum driveshaft. Will this work for my car?
heres what the guy sent me:
FORD MUSTANG GCAT Driveshaft
This lot includes a New Ford DRIVESHAFT assembly for 2001-2004 FORD MUSTANG GCAT model vehicles. Item is still in the original Ford packaging - Ford part No. 1R3Z-4602-BA. This is a Ford OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) product, Not an aftermarket item. Item retails for $209.18. Details are as follows:
FORD OEM Part for 2001-2004 FORD MUSTANG GCAT Model Vehicles
With 6-cylinder, 3.8L OHV EFI Engines
and 4R70W (AODE) 4-Speed Automatic Transmissions
Rear axle drive
27 Spline (including key)
Approximate dimensions: 54" Long 3 1/2" Diameter
this seems to be the perfect solution to my problem of adding a aluminum driveshaft to my 8.8 b/c most others are designed for a manual whereas this one should work just right with my auto tranny.... any opinions on how well this will work?
