I was told the other day that certain year Ford Aerostar's came with a aluminum driveshaft that was a direct replacement in a 87-93 Stang. Anyone else heard this or can confirm it?

That's something I haven't ever heard of. If it does work, that'd be a great thing to let be known with as many of those ugly things in salvage yards.

Heres some good infomation.

Aluminum driveshaft from AeroStar:
It needs to be from a 92-93-94 Aerostar AWD and you will need u-joint part #353 from NAPA. It is supposed to be a bolt up once the U joints are replaced.

This is correct. I scored one for $60 from the local wreckers. It was a brand spankin' new Ford service replacement 'shaft, when the van was wrecked.

Along with the U-joints, you will need to re-use the Mustang yoke.

Way more than enough' i belive that there just as strong if not stronger than the stock shaft.

I was at the wreakers the other night and saw an AWD areostar' i got under there and tried to get it off but it seemed that those bolts were welded on there on and not comming off so it stayed there.

Yea drive shafts are a PITA the first time off, not sure, but it seems like they use lock-tite or something. I always double up on the wrench for mechanical advantage if you know what i mean
