Product Description

Improve Acceleration and Reduce Vibration
Mustang aluminum driveshafts are a popular performance upgrade on 1979-2004 Mustangs. This Ford Racing aluminum driveshaft replaces your stock heavy steel driveshaft to help improve acceleration The reduced un-sprung and rotational mass takes less power to turn meaning more power makes it to the wheels. The FRPP drive shaft is also high speed balanced and fitted with heavy duty u-joints so many driveline vibrations are reduced or eliminated after installation.

Increased Power Handling
The FRPP Ford Racing Mustang Aluminum Driveshaft is constructed from high strength, 3.5" diameter 0.114" wall thickness 6061-RT62 aluminum seamless drawn tube. Then it is fitted with heavy duty 1330 u-joints and Mustang correct transmission yoke and axle flange. This allows for much greater power handling over the stock steel driveshaft.

Tech Specs
The M-4602-G Driveshaft measures 45.5" long, center of u-joint to center of u-joint. The transmission yoke is a 28 spline and the rear axle flange will bolt right to any 7.5" or 8.8" rear end in one of the below Mustang's.

This Mustang Aluminum Driveshaft Fits:

  • 79-95 Mustang 5.0L/5.8L with Manual Transmission (SROD/T5)

  • 79-95 Mustang 5.0L/5.8L with Manual Transmission (Tremec 3550 - Must use driveshaft spacer on 94-95)

  • 83-93 Mustang 5.0L/5.8L with Automatic Transmission (C4/AOD)

  • 94-04 Mustang 3.8L/3.9L V6 with Manual Transmission (T5)

  • 96-04 Mustang 3.8L/3.9L V6 with Automatic Transmission (Must Re-use Factory Transmission Yoke from Stock Driveshaft)


NOTE: An M236041X 31 spline Driveshaft yoke can be installed on this drive shaft to expand its fitment for aftermarket transmissions.

  awesome peice!!!!
By on 4/4/2014
I installed it a little over a week ago. This thing solved 80% if my vibration issues. Its super light and while i have'nt been to the track yet...... i wouldnt be surprized if i gain a tenth or two by having less rotational mass as well as a few pounds less to pull down the quarter. Also... Its very well built and has certifiable welds...i know, im a welder. Great price and prompt delivery also.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

  Ford Racing aluminum driveshaft
By on 3/20/2014
just installed the Ford Racing aluminum driveshaft in my 95 Mustang. I had a vibration issue with my stock driveshaft ,not the fault of bad u joints. it took a half hour to install it.I had to use a little heat on the factory driveshaft bolts to help break the Loctite bond. Took the car for a drive. vibration gone, well worth the bucks.

  No more vibration problems, but be warned...
By on 4/3/2014
I have a 95 GT with a built blown motor, .410 rear gear with 31-spline half-shafts and was still running the stock DS. I was experiencing a lot of vibration past 70 MPH. After doing a bit of searching, I found that many people got rid of that vibration by using a DS such as this one and they were right. The vibrations are gone. Be aware, though, this DS is considerably larger in diameter so if your car is 'slammed', there is a good chance that this DS will hit the E-brake bracket that connects the E-brake line to the 2 lines that go to each tire. My car isn't lowered much, just Eibach springs, but either myself or someone before me used the E-brake so hard that they actually peeled the bracket about an inch downwards from the DS housing underneath the car where it is mounted and I put a nice groove into my brand spankin' new aluminum DS.

  Must Have for any Pony
By on 6/19/2014
Installed it on my 95 Gt 5-Speed test drove home 120 with no vibrations in 5th gear eliminates weight lag. Must have especially if you car is a daily driver or is equipped with upgraded gears. Ordered with new bolts and Latemodel Restoration discount code came out to $299.99 on the dot. Shipped in about a week from Texas to California installed in 30 min with jack and jack stands. I still remember when these were $150 back in the day lol but still SATISFIED

  Easy swap
By on 5/22/2014
I bought this driveline to stave off the vibrations that my new 4.10 gears brought to the table at freeway speeds, and am totally pleased. Also a very easy install. If you have a vibration, and a "buzzing" feeling in your shifter at highway speeds, this driveline is a cheap way to make your old fox, not feel like such a junker.

  Excellent shaft for the money!
By on 7/11/2014
Added this along with a balanced engine and flywheel, engine revs like a 2-stroke with no vibration. Drive shafts are often overlooked when considering performance enhancements but between the weight savings and reduced rotating mass, it should be at the top of the list.

  Vibrations GONE!!!
By on 4/29/2014
I was having a problem with a severe vibration over 70 mph after I did the T-5 swap and upgraded to 3.55 gears on my 87 5.0. I tried installing new u-joints and same problem. Then I ordered the driveshaft and all the vibrations are gone I now have hwy speeds back!

  Fixed my vibration
By on 4/30/2014
This is a good product at a price better than anywhere else on the Web. I had slightly twisted my original drive shaft, causing vibrations that got worse with speed. This unit arrived quickly and fit in place easily, u-joints are included. Vibration is gone.

  Great Mod!
By on 3/17/2014
Image uploaded by Kevin L. I had a little vibration at 3800 rpm after the C4 swap, even with the correct flywheel, new balancer, etc. and this took 95% of the vibration away. Also adds piece of mind since it's much stouter than the stock one.
