Gears and a drive shaft

Ok guys soon in going to put 3.73 gears in my 2012 and I'm gunna get a tuner but my question is at that point would a 700$ drive shaft be worth the money. I'm not worried about my stock shaft breaking. But I want some good off the line performance.

You won't really gain any performance, its more if you want to remove the limiter and take to the track for speeds higher than 120 ish. If you plan on doing that than yes, if not the stock ds is fine.

What do you mean by smoother? Did you find it worth spending 700$

like your car is more together at higher speeds. I'm procharged looking forward to nitrous so I needed it. I've been 160 in my car and it gives you piece of mind. it's worth $700 if you plan on doing some high end performance mods but if your doing basic bolt on and as long you don't plan on going 130 don't waste the money. IMO

I also heard that you get less clicking and clunking between shifts. Any truth to that?

yes depending if it's a manual/auto and gears I believe I never had an issue with it but my friend with 3.73 also procharged had a problem with it and the DS fixed it. his is manual and I have an auto with 4.10

Still hear a bit of a clunk shifting into 2nd sometimes on mine. No change with my new drive shaft. However I had a vibration on the stock ds when reducing speed around 2300-2500 rpms that was annoying. That almost completely disappeared with the new aluminum ds.

I would think the weight savings would free up some good HP no? At least take a tenth or two of the 1320, and that's not bad for one part.
