All this talk about driveshafts is making me want to retire from this forum.

Someone told me that during the last cyber Monday, many driveshafts were on sale for 15% off. I hope they will do the same thing on labor day. Otherwise, it will be too cold for me to work on cars in later November.

Just dreaming

No clearance issues for me with my 4" inch axle exchange driveshaft. I am slammed as well never had a issue with it other than clunks when putting the car into reverse and drive.

I've also read that with the DSS, because of the design, if you decide to lower, there is no need to adjust the pinion able with an UCA. Does anyone know of this is true?

^ That's my understanding. The DSS unit has a constant velocity (CV) joint at the rear where it bolts up to the pinion flange.

Sadly, with the September sale, all that is listed is either garbage or for the GT/GT500.

Latemodelrestoration.com lists dynotech 3.5" one for $659. I am tempted.

I heard they are the driveshaft maker for nascar.

Thank you for sharing your experience with Dynotech. I am likely to pull the trigger after the Labor day weekend.

Is there a discount code or forum discount for late model restoration?

They have social follower coupon code for 6% off, but it does not apply to this item. So the answer is no.

I'm just a little curious and wonder

American Muscle will match a price on almost everything. They ship for free. They stand behind the products they sell. They offer a discount to M.E. forum members.

My concern is , Why not buy from American Muscle???
Alex is always on here to answer questions and help out when needed.
I'm just wondering.

I'd love to deal with AM as well, but they do not seem to carry Dynotech products.

I usually buy from there. However, there are times I have to buy from other vendors. That is usually due to AM not having things, which I would imagine they would/should carry. Like the Pony Tri-Bar Fender Badges like the ones found on the 11-14 V6 Pony Package.

Not everyone with a V6 that wants fender badges wants those 3.7s.

That is just 1 small example. Plenty of others out there as well.

Well, I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the DDS 3.5 inch from Hypermotive, $675 total. Although it may be more expensive now, I now no longer need the adjustable UCA so that will save me more in the future. Hopefully will be receiving and installing in a week or 2!

There are tangible benefits to having an aluminum suggested, so not quite Kool-Aid drinking.

If your car is lowered You will probably want an adjustable

Panhard bar.

It's something to check on.

Good call. BMR has a decent one for under $200, I believe. I have one and it's great...just make sure you get those jam nuts good and tight or they can loosen a bit over time and cause some annoying tapping/rattling. Ask me how I know.

Not lowered yet, although I do have the GT springs. Does anyone know if those will lower over stock V6 springs or just increase firmness?

Yes, theirs is a really nice piece. I purchased mine from AM about 3 weeks ago for 139.99

I have Boss 302 springs on my V6. The springs are shorter than the V6 ones but firmer. In the end, the height is about the same.

Handling is noticeably better.

Besides Ford, any other place you can score these springs? Not talking about CL either -_-

Use blue loctite and draw a line from the jam nut to the bar with a sharpie. Allows easy identification if they come loose. But with the loctite should be good to go.

Not CL? Ebay then

You can get these springs for less than $50, if not free.

I did use blue LocTite the first time around, but apparently not enough...took months for it to loosen, though.

The Sharpie line is a good idea.

Thanks for sharing the info! After you put it on, please let us know how you like it.

DSS is definitely a good choice. However, I am still fond of Dynotech, which is 2 lbs lighter. That is the difference between an aluminum driveshaft and a carbon fiber one.
