    Has anybody else had an issue with their aluminum 1 piece DS vibrating at speeds upwards of 50mph? I just got the DS and 3.73 gears installed. They double checked the pinion angle when I brought it back in and said it's in spec. They're going to try installing a different shaft to see if it's...

    Hello Mustang Community! I have been doing many HP, drivetrain, and Handling upgrades to my 09 GT, and I am currently questioning whether I should purchase an Aluminum driveshaft. I enjoy spirited driving like the rest of us, and may go to a track from time to time. Is it worth the money for...

    So my friend and I installed the DSS one-piece driveshaft, Stiffler's driveshaft loop, Ford Racing 4.10 gears, and Ford Racing adjustable shocks yesterday (struts going on later this week). I've definitely noticed an increased amount of noise with the driveshaft, especially around 40 mph and...

    Hey guys, I am trying to figure out what my differential gear ratio is. to do this I am marking my drive shaft and tire and spinning it accordingly to determine the ratio. Here's the problem, I have an aftermarket aluminum drive shaft (either 3.5 or 4.0) so I need to compensate for the extra...

    My car is a 2009 Ford Mustang GT with 69,251 on the odometer. About 15,000 miles ago, Ford replaced the Tremec TR3650 under warranty for a severe shifting problem. Over time the new transmission developed a very slight leak out of the bell housing weep hole, putting a few drops of reddish brown...

    I know the 2011 Mustang V6 has the driveshaft problem at around 135 mph and I was wondering which aftermarket driveshaft would be best? Thanks!

    This is a diagram of the driveshaft on my 2014 Mustang V6. I went under the car to take a look at it as well. It is exactly as what is shown in the picture. It looks like in two pieces, with the rear end being aluminum, but there is no center bearing or any other support in the middle. My...

    So the whole family crammed in my new '14 GT this afternoon for an airport pickup and 100 mile drive to the suburbs. Interestingly enough, the stang responded in a few different ways. Weight distribution was 300lbs front, 400lbs rear, 50-65lbs trunk. First, and most obvious, there was...

    Looks like my driveshaft is rubbing a little bit. I'm on sportlines for reference. Should i be concerned with this?
  11. 4.6L Tech
    Hey guys. I'm new to this site and I need some help diagnosing a problem with my 2002 Mustang GT. There's this faint rotating clicking noise thats coming from underneath my shifter. The noise only happens when I get up to about 40mph and the sound increases as I speed up. It doesn't matter what...

    I heard that some Mustangs have a problem where the driveshaft snaps around 130 MPH and I researched it and it looks like its only in the 2011 models. Does the 2006 have this problem with the Driveshaft snapping/failing at high speeds or is it just the 2011? I have a 2006 4.0L V6 unmodified...

    I have a 2011 3.7. Is it worth it to buy a new driveshaft? I've read that they are ridiculously unreliable. Thanks.

    Hello all, It's been a while since I've been active here on the forums.. my grandpa passed away recently so my mother flew to Germany to deal with that, so I had to temporarily stay at the parents' ranch and manage everything there. Also, I got yet another tattoo during my absence from the...

    Hello Everyone, I just re-installed my 4 speed manual transmission after changing the flywheel. After all that fun I re-installed the shift linkage and shift lever, as I tried to shift into gears just to test it out I couldnt get it into any gear. I crawled back under the car.. the linkage is...

    The balancer on my 1998 mustang's DS has had the rubber rotted away and was just wandering around the drive shaft so i took it off my car. So now i need to replace this piece but I'm not sure how to go about doing so. Can i replace just the balancer? or do i need to replace a whole section or...

    So after I placed an order for BMR's rear tunnel brace/driveshaft loop, I've discovered that it's actually meant for OEM two-piece driveshafts like the one in the GT (thanks Robert, from Shaftmasters). When equipped with an aftermarket one-piece drive shaft, there also may be an issue if you...

    I ran across an article stating the Driveshaft in the V6 fails at high speed's. I wanted to get some H-Rated tires and the BAMA tune so I can open it up at the track. So are these Driveshafts weak or was the person driving this car stupid or both? Here is the link: Watch what happens when a Ford...
