Aluminum Drive Shaft?

Ok i saw that a lot of yall 6ers are runnin aluminum drive shafts. I got a 2003 V6 with an automatic transmission. Where can i get an aluminum drive shaft, how much do they cost, is it worth it, and what else do i need to buy to make it work right. thanks

Re: Aluminum Drive Shaft?

they used to be around 150 bucks and worth it~ they save 10lbs (100 rotating pounds) and such so they free up a couple hp/tq.

Ive not seen one for sale for a while but they are much more costly tnow

Re: Aluminum Drive Shaft?

You can check around some other mustang forums, I picked one up earlier in the year for $ 175.00 with some other parts.
The cheapest new I've seen is speed concepts for $ 244.00 .
