I would recommend having someone help you but its pretty easy take out 4 bolts each side drop the drive shaft. Pop the other one in put the bolts back in torque to spec and your good to go!

Okay. According to there web site they only have it available for the 11 plus GT model. Not V6, and the GT driveshaft is 800 dollars. Its less at AM for there GT driveshaft. But no V6 driveshaft or at least what they say on there website.

Just curious but which one piece aluminum driveshaft is better quality? The one from the Driveshaft Shop or the one from American Muscle which is made by the Axle Exchange. I assume either driveshaft is good quality and be able to withstand high speeds of 150 plus with no problem.

I went with DSS because they have the highest quality build. There driveshafts are balanced up to 9000 rpm where as Axle exchange was only 5000 rpm, I believe. Also features a CV joint which is unique. Also DSS has been around forever so they have good reputation for building good quality driveshafts.

Please excuse me for my ignorance but what are the limits or flaws with having it balanced only to 5000 rpm. What does that mean?

But really, any DS you go with will be a definite worthy upgrade over the stock POS. Couldn't believe how crappy the stock one was engineered when I got to take it out and inspect it closely. Ford really goofed up there.

I'll assume you bought the one piece drive shaft because your going to track the Mustang, or drag race with it at your local drag strip. Your Mustang has a top speed limiter set in the ECU from the factory. The stock drive shaft works fine with this top speed.

So, why spend the money on the drive shaft if you have no plans to drive at higher speeds at a track, or at a drag strip?

Because its not just speed it's rotating mass too and with too many upgrades a hard launch could snap it

What is considered late 2013? I bought my 2013 v6 about 2 months ago I'm guessing that is late 2013
