One piece driveshaft noise?

I installed my driveshaft this weekend and I noticed when I shift from park to reverse or drive to reverse I hear a clinging noise. Anyone have or had this problem and knows how to solve it?

Mine sounds like a clunking sound.

Have you lowered or changed any suspension parts?

Yes but I did the suspension work first and no sound. I installed (my mechanic) installed the new driveshaft later.

One piece shafts are more susceptible to alignment issues. You need to install adjustable UCA and pan hand bar. I would also do adjustable LCA. Once installed, have a good mechanic adjust the differential/shaft angle. Failure to keep the proper alignment will cost you in the future.

From American Muscle:
Quote:
When changing from a four-link suspension to a three-link suspension, Ford used a panhard bar. This change results in an additional consideration for owners of these cars. With a panhard bar, as the rear axle rises and falls, movement is in a slight arc instead of completely vertical. This arc also comes into play as the car is lowered, and the result is that the rear end will shift slightly to one side as the car is lowered. The solution to this shift, is an adjustable panhard bar to replace the fixed length factory bar. This allows the rear end to be properly centered again, once the vehicle is lowered.
Pinion Angle

The three-link suspension can also affect the vehicle’s pinion angle as well. An incorrect pinion angle can cause undesired stress on the universal joints, excessive drivetrain noise or vibration, or even possible contact between the underside of the car and the rear axle. To combat this, you want to look into an aftermarket upper control arm. You can choose between fixed length replacements, or adjustable options.

If this is true, american muscle dropped the ball!!!

Mine was lowered only 1 inch, Ford Racing Handling Package for V6. Any recommendation on UCA or Panhand Bar?

When I ORDERED the Ford Racing Handling Package, IT sure would have been nice if someone (like who took the order) had told me I might also need Upper Control Arms and an adjustable Panhard Bar!!! Especially since the Ford Racing Package was installed, these could have been installed cheaper!!!!!

American Muscle has several guides with the information you need. They also have several different panhard bars and upper control arms that would do good. I am looking at the Whiteline versions. Not the cheapest, but good reputation. I would also get the pan hard brace to go with the panhard bar.
