Single Mass Flywheel and Alu driveshaft

So I had an issue several months ago where Ford didn't have a duel mass wheel for me and I ended up putting a Ram Billet Steel flywheel in. The car was new to me, only had a few hours in it, so I can't really comment on the differences between the two- but it revs nice with this one. I am getting a rattling/ chatter sound and am being told by Ford that it's backlash from the lighter single mass wheel.


I've only had my stang since July so I haven't done many mods yet. Put in the Blowfish shifter bracket ( big improvement) and a GT sound tube ( because I like it). I'd like to continue refining the ride of the car and I'm thinking about an aluminum drive shaft next. The car clunks a little on low speed shifts ( where I can hear it) and I've been told this in the stock shaft.


The question is: does anyone know if the aluminum driveshaft with have an effect on the noise created but the single mass wheel? I couldn't live with it getting worse and would really like to quiet it down. Any advise??

That's just the nature of the beast with a lighter mass flywheel. The clutch really only chatters in neutral, or low speeds, where the driveshaft isn't much (if any) of a factor anyways. I believe it will be fine. Or at the very least not get worse.

Thanks Voltwings. Do you know if the AD will quiet down the shifts... those clunks?

A lot of people found that the one piece DS helped things, but not me. Maybe acceleration and fuel economy a bit, but that mild clunking sound is now an obvious clunking sound. At low speeds, it can act weird, too.

What I mean is, say it's morning. I hop in the stang, clutch in, first gear, start the engine, let the clutch out smoothly. It pulls to 7-8 mph, kind of bucks, and then is doing like 5. Sometimes it keeps it at 8.

I don't know much about how DS work (beyond the obvious spinning, I mean like the physics), but I believe the two piece is quieter because bit has that play in the middle. That joint (I imagine) would allow some play and reduce noise and aggressiveness.

Crap, I was hoping for something a little more straight forward... hate to jump in when there's been mixed results.

I have an auto and the DS helped a lot with vibration in 6th gear at low rpm. Also acceleration

I don't experience any vibration from it, although I did not note any before. The DSS DS I got seems like a great product.

It didn't change much for me. I still have the same chatter, and the clunks will be about the same in my opinion as it's less rotating mass but a more direct driveline vs the 2 piece.
