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)

  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.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

  awesome peice!!!!

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.

  Great Mod!

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.
