Possible without a lift or not? I've rebuilt a ford ranger and reinstalled its driveshaft without a lift lol but I realize this would be different entirely. Does anyone have any tips or even better an install guide? I've searched for one online and no luck yet.

I did mine in garage with the rear on stands. Was a while ago but I believe it's just 4 bolts in front and 6 in rear. Wasn't hard at all.

you are going to want ramps, jack plus jack stands, etc.

Something to get the car off the ground.

My car up on the ramps I have I as a rather thin guy could easily do the drive shift myself or with someones help. I looked at this when I installed my o/r X pipe and looked at the shifter location since they are two things I want to replace, and both look completely doable with just the ramps.

I know the odds are in your favor, but the thought of being under the car while it's on jack stands and ramps is still scary. Not that I wouldn't do it.

why? I purchased truck ramps, they hold 12,000 lbs. Just make sure to block off the wheels not on the ramps and put the e-brake on.

Been under the car multiple times and never felt like it was ever going to collapse on me.

LOL

Jack stands are fine. Get the car up on them & try to wiggle it, no movement & you're good.

The Mustang 2-piece drive shaft is probably a bit more involved than the Pinto project my brother in law & I work on, but I've had that driveshaft in and out more times than I can remember--now I can get it out of the car in under 5 minutes when on jack stands.

Roughly what is the weight difference between the stock driveshaft and a ford racing aluminum driveshaft say for '99-'04 applications?
