Broken driveshaft on 09 v6

Anyone know how or if it's common to break a driveshaft on a 2005-2009 v6 mustang?

I don't see there'd be a problem unless you mod the car up crazy and keep the drive shaft stock and gets obliterated from a launch

At blacksmoke02 it is modified and it broke off when I took off from a stop light. Oh ya it's automatic does that make a difference. And no haven't lowered the car

It is rare to break a driveshaft on the 2006-2010. Ford changed the parts after a couple of 2005's came apart. Had to do with some clips as I recall.

I happen to have a 2006 shaft for an automatic in my garage and don't need it if you are interested

I was told by my ford service mech that if the the ride height and suspension geometry has been modified without properly setting pinion angle on the drive shaft it will cause vibration and worse case scenario, break. they've had one brought to their shop cuz of that but usually happens with imports cuz our mustangs have a pretty beefy drive shaft.

Yeah like JimC said it's kinda rare to break the driveshaft on the 06+. Maybe it was just a little bad luck and broke but usually there shouldn't be a problem even with simple bolt on mods.

I've heard something similar to that before. 1.5" shouldn't make that kinda difference tho right? I'm getting ready for some 1.5 springs

i'm not sure, but I would get an adjustable pan hard bar at the very least so you can properly position the chassis over the axle. you can eff up your LCAs when you lower your car and don't readjust the position. The lcas may sit crooked in the bracket, you will have metal rubbing against metal as well as premature wearing out of the bushings.
