Driveshaft questions

Hey I'm just wondering for the people who have swapped driveshafts what kind of difference does it make? Is it noticeable and how much and does any one have dyno numbers for a before and after?

No noticeable differences. For standard stangs, you will lose some of that ugly vibration in the shifter. And on auto and standard, you can go over 120 more safely. Thats about it.

Might free up a little power, since its a lighter driveshaft it allows it to rotate more. Also might gain a little more response when gassing it.

I believe how responsive your car is and safety are the biggest things affected, safety more than anything but many people do not buy it because of the 700 dollar price tag

Extremely true. IMO, only buy it if you are going to be racing/dragging your car. Otherwise, the gains do not justify the price tag. As the money could be used better elsewhere. Like headers, tuner, or appearence mods.

That's what I was thinking but I just won the driveshaft shop giveaway from American muscle and I got a carbon fiber driveshaft so I'm pretty pumped I got a 1300 dollar driveshaft for free especially since I was thinking about getting an aluminum one WAY down the road but the 700-800 dollar price tag was pushing me away.Click image for larger version

I don't know about a GT or older six---BUT---

I really notice a difference on my 2012 3.7 Automatic with 2.73 rear.
First= No vibration at all.---NONE---
second= Not one klunk since I put it on.
Third= slightly better response
Forth= when I take my foot off the gas the car actually slows down easier.

I grant you that these are very slight differences ( Except for the no Klunk)
This is one of those things "I did not need" BUT It is one of those thing I wanted. I wish I would have got it a long time ago.

Very odd. When i change gears in my auto, i hear a clunk from the driveshaft. Started after installing the 1 piece. Had it checked twice and cant find anything. Very odd.

I get absolutley "NO" Klunk at all-anytime-

When I had my stock driveshaft I had a klunk about 50% of the time after I pulled out of the garage and got to the curve on my street.
It would always klunk when I was slowing down for a red light and it turned green and I accelerated. "ALWAYS"
It would slightly klunk when I went to back up."Alway"
It had a slight vibration when I let off the gas to slow down ( Not always but most of the time)
I have the aluminum driveshaft from "AXLE EXCHANGE" and it was installed at Brothers speed shop. When Dave installed it he put locktite on all of the hardware and used a torque wrench when tightening it up.
My original driveshaft is now sitting in a box in my garage and is not only HEAVY but a rusty looking over sized item that Ford should really be ashamed to have put on my Mustang in the first place.
I'll be at the American Muscle show in August if anyone want to take a ride and see how a nice tight riding car I have.
They should have the drag strip open in the evening and I'll see if I can do another 13.3 1/4 mile.
I'm haveing a hard time waiting for August.

Ronnie

I have an aluminum driveshaft and no clunks, I did have clunks with the stock shaft.

I recall reading somewhere else that after market LCA's will get of the clunk if you have one that's introduced after installing the one piece driveshaft.

Already having 3:73 gears, I honestly didn't notice a difference in acceleration.. but I DID notice a nice smooth firmness to the driveline that wasn't there previously. That made it worth it to me... It's hard to describe.. just one of those things you have to experience...
