I guess aluminum driveshaft is not for me

I finally installed a new Dynotech 3.5 inch aluminum driveshaft to my Mustang today. It is a quality piece with no vibration of any sort at all.

However, I get a drone whenever I decelerate by taking my right foot off the gas pedal. Even if I put the transmission to neutral the drone still persists for about 30 seconds or so. The driveshaft also magnifies my rear end noise.

Unless the issue is from a bad install, I might consider to return it.

No noise or drone with my AxleExchange one- piece. I'd double check the install.

Sometimes you have to take it out and rotate it 90 degrees. I've heard that helps.

I get a little drone too but its not too bad. I have borla ab and 4.10 so that all doesn't help. I can live with it. I really like it. acceleration is more effortless and fun. I have the dynotech 3.5" too. dealer installed it and pinion angle at diff is 3 degrees same as stock they said so no adjustment needed

How much did your dealership charge you for the install?

$221 total but I had them do something else also. And the steering wheel air bag recall was done too since they had the parts. It was probably 2 hours book work at $90.00 per hour here in CA

This is true, I resolved a similar issue doing that, by rotating the driveshaft 180 degrees. I don't think the flange where it bolts together will line up rotating it only 90 degrees due to the bolt pattern of the flange. But anyway, rotating it to the different position resolved the issue.

(I could be remembering this wrong as it was a year or so ago, maybe it was 90. Either way, rotating it worked.)

Drone from a drive shaft ?????????

I don't think so. You guys probably had the slight drone from your exhaust before you ever installed the drive shaft and really never listened for it. Now, You added a drive shaft and are listening for everything possible that a car can make.
A drive shaft may cause a vibration,
It may cause a clunk if the U-Joints are bad, ( Which is 99% rare)
A "DRONE" Never in a billion years. It just ain't gonna happen.Your just better off driving the car like you did before and stop listening for stuff that was always there but you never really tuned your ears to hear.

I had a shaftmasters and it was BAD for this. I now have the DSS one and it is way better but still a slight drone, only heard though now when barely accelerating, of course I have LT headers, no cats and muffler deletes so that covers allot up lol. I have also noticed some shifter vibration noice but attribute that more to the blowfish bracket than the shaft although done at the same time.

I do know that setting the proper pinion angle is huge.

To add to ronnie post above drone is more exhaust sound but I think we are taking the same think. It is a low, rotational sound sounds like coming more to rear of car.

My one-piece does seem to transmit vibrations more than the stock 2 piece, although I expected that; just physics since there is no flex absorbing vibration. It will also "thunk" a little louder than usual when shifting rapidly into 2nd, (doesn't thunk when shifting smoothly and normally).

However, like Ronnie says. To me, this is in no way a drone sound. If you had vibration making some kind of drone before *maybe* the shaft resonates along with it. But that's not the fault of shaft. That has something to do with your gears or your exhaust.

Why can't we post video of all our aftermarket driveshaft and let's listen and compare? I have the axle exchange like Ronnie has and I have no weird noises except the thunk when I put mine in reverse with an auto but my driveway is in inclined so that could be it.

MPT tune, Axle exchange Aluminum driveshaft, 3:73 gears, borla stype, frrp x pipe, Mac ceramic shorty headers, airaid cai, Jlt separator, koni orange shocks and struts, SR Springs, gt500 mounts, J&M Panhard bar, Bmr LCA, 2010 gt500 wheels, roush chin splitter, roush louvers, and RTR stripes... 😎 🚘

On my auto 2014 I USED to get a clunk when going in to reverse with the aluminum drive shaft. After I got my gears installed though, that noise is gone. Idk if the shop did something to mend it.

I had my gears done before my driveshaft, but the clunk only happens when my car is in an inclined but in flat surface I have no clunk in reverse. Now that I have my tires replaced it's even better no more humming, turning noise..

I think this is a good explanation. My gear swap was not done 100% perfect. The root cause of the drone could be the gears, and the aluminum driveshaft could just resonate with them.

It glad I'm not the only one with the weird noise when it off the gas. I have the exact same noise as the OP. I also have 4.10's and the shop said I will get more noise with the shorter gears. Definitely transmits thru the alum shaft. Mines a DSS

I wouldn't worry about it. A 1 piece will transmit more sound.

I think it is because the backlash was set too low. During deceleration, the pinion gear moves towards the rear end of the car, pushing the ring gear. If the backlash is too low, that will cause noise.

+1. I hear a bit more noise from the rear end, but have zero driveline vibrations from the superior balance of the aluminum shaft.

I just finished installing mine yesterday and when I took it for a drive later that night, the car left very different to me. It did not take as much as it used to. The car is noticeably quieter. I still have not made up my mind if I like it or not.

Yes, it turned out that my purchased is protected by Google Trusted Stores. They helped me get my money back.

I kept all the package materials. The driveshaft showed zero signs of being used. Therefore the return process was smooth. I did pay for the return shipping, with which I was completely ok.

Yes, I had my stock ds back. No drone at all I started to appreciate the stock ds very much after this bad experience. Also keep in mind the stock ds of our 13-14 V6 is only 27 lbs or so, not much different from the aluminum driveshaft.

That said, if it were not for the noise, this would have been a keeper. It feels great whenever you think that you have a shiny beautiful ds underneath your car.

Glad it all worked out for you man!

On the topic of Aluminum Drive Shafts, what was everyone thought process on purchasing one?

Did you want a lighter car? Was it so you could go faster than 115mph and for longer periods? One piece is better than two piece?

Trying to wrap my head around why getting an aftermarket DS is so important if its only a few lbs. lighter than the stocks? $700-1000 depending on what the DS material is made of, thats a lot of money to try and swallow when theres a lot of other mods that could be had for that much.

Well, To tell the truth

The Only reason for me was that I wanted one. I don't go fast, I only ran my car at the drag strip once,
It is why did I want an Airaid.
Why did I want the MMD rear panel.
Why did I want a Boss 302 strut brace.
Why did I want a Swarr rear axle brace.
Why the red caliper covers.
Why did I want Magnaflow Mufflers.

At my tender age of "39" (72) I still like to mess up a perfect out of the factory car with stuff that costs to much and definitely do not need.
*******************************************OR******************************************

Maybe it is because American Muscle puts stuff in the catalogs and web site that puts fumes in the air while your reading to hypnotize a person to do all these useless mods.

I don't know what my next MOD will be , But I can assure you that it will be something else I don't need.
Ronnie

I had a bunch of money to throw out and wanted to be apart of the cool crowd that says they have a one piece aluminum driveshaft. The one piece makes me very cool now. Plus my car is smooth and steady when rolling 140 mph keeping up with the GT's. The cool crowd! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

Safety. I take my car to the track (road course, not drag strip) and I run with the speed limiters off.
