The stock two piece driveshaft is about 40 pounds compared to most aluminum one-piece driveshaft waiting half of that at 20 pounds.

Thanks that what I was wondering if it would shave in half the rotating weight.

I replaced my stock 1 piece with Shaft Masters one-piece aluminum. I'm very happy with the results.

Did you have to correct pinion angle with drive shaft switch?

I'm lowered 1.5 inches in the rear so I did adjust my pinion angle. The shaft Masters driveshaft has two CV joints, so they claim you don't have to adjust your pinion angle from the stock setting. I corrected mine to -2°. The Price was the least expensive I found of all the aluminum one-piece driveshafts at $530 shipped.

FYI there is a nine pound chunk of steel inside the stock driveshaft to help? balance this POS. Pinion angle doesn't change but should be about neg. 2 degrees with car sitting on the ground with full weight on the suspension.
