I have a vibration in my car win I get a round higher speeds, I gust got 4.10 gears installed and it has made it way more noticeable the man that installed my gears is a 35 year pro and said it is more than likely in my drive shaft, has any body had the same problem?

It's not uncommon to have a vibration after a gear install. IT's more than likely always been there, its just the higher gear ration brings the vibration to your attention sooner since the RPMs arrive quicker. It very well could be your drive-shaft or just a bad U-joint. Either way an aluminum drive-shaft is a great upgrade because it is freshly balanced, comes with new u-joints plus the lighter weight aluminum will help with your rotational mass and in turn free up some horsepower.

This driveshaft will not work on your 99 Cobra. You actually have a 31 spline driveshaft. The one you need is here:

The automatic has a longer yoke. You will need part # M4602J-K that comes with the longer yoke that you will need to swap on to the drive shaft.

Hey Chuck, this driveshaft, or any factory length Fox body driveshaft, would have to be shortened to use with the 4R70W trans in addition to using the correct yoke. I'm not sure of the exact dimentions but it would have to be shortened approximately 1 1/2 inches.

Last time I needed u-joints we mic'd them at the auto parts and they ordered the correct ones(napa). The write up on this drive shaft just says "heavy duty 1330 u-joints". When in doubt, always mic the caps and the spans. I tend to lean toward the Spicer joints and if strength is a concern, you can get solid's.

Kevin, this is not the Ford Racing drive shaft you need for a 4R70W, for that application in a 1996 GT you would need the M4602J-K Driveshaft kit. http://www.latemodelrestoration.com/item/M4602J-K/Ford-Racing-Mustang-Aluminum-Driveshaft-Kit-Automatic-96-04-

Just like when you get new tires they get balanced a drive shaft when comes from the factory is balanced when you remove it for what ever reason you should mark it from the they it was oriented before removal otherwise your gonna get a vibration you can feel all threw your ride and will be more or less severe at different rpm.I would take your drive shaft to a shop and have them balance it and then mark it. then install it back in the car test drive it and see how it does. If it vibrates loosen the shaft and move it 90 degrees till you find the vibration has stopped. Also check a manual it mite give a clue to a mark on the rear end that is a balance point mark. I don't have my fox body any more so I cant give you a better response. Worst case you have to climb under the car few times and move the shaft and rebolt it to find the balance spot hope this can help you

You may have to use your stock yoke to make it work, but it is worth it. I called in to the tech guys at LMR a few times to make sure mine fit back when I ordered mine. I ordered a 28 spline for my 1986 GT and a 31 spline for my 1997 Cobra. Wish I had done it years ago. Vibrations were completely gone and the exceleration is very pleasantly surprising. Not sure if is more noticeable with a V8 or a V6 but it should still be worth the trouble either way even if you have to swap the yoke. Remember to call in. Makes me feel better for every one of my upgrades. Enjoy. Sorry I can not be more helpful.
