Lightweight Aluminum Driveshaft
Get faster acceleration and weight reduction in your 2011-2012 Shelby GT500 with this Dynotech aluminum driveshaft. This lightweight driveshaft is a 1 piece shaft with a 3.5" diameter and .125" wall thickness for serious strength and durability. It's smaller than other 4" diameter driveshafts making it a perfect fit under your lowered S197. This beefy new design takes the worries away from breaking the stock 2-piece shaft and gives you a smooth, vibration free ride. Fits automatic and manual transmissions. Includes flange.
Why An Aluminum Driveshaft?
Adding a lightweight aluminum driveshaft to your Mustang reduces unsprung weight for quicker acceleration and reduced overall vehicle weight. These shafts weight less than factory steel shafts and are the perfect upgrade for the enthusiasts who wants to get the most out of their Mustang. They can also reduce driveline vibrations for a smoother ride.
The 05-14 S197 Mustangs were cursed with a two piece driveshaft that was not only weak but heavy. Replacing your heavy 2 piece design factory driveshaft will not only remove unwanted unsprung weight but it will also help with reducing vibrations and improve acceleration. Be sure to click the link above to see our full line-up! They are available for both the GT models (automatic and manual transmissions) and Shelby GT500 models.
Jmac: 2005 to 2014 Mustangs were equipped with the two-piece steel drive shaft from the factory. Not only is it failure prone under race conditions, it takes a fair amount of power to spin it. Reducing weight, especially rotational weight, is a surefire way to improve the performance of your Mustang on the street or the track. In this case, it also aids in safety.

Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!!
