This driveshaft is easy to install, lighter than the stocker, and looks great. It also provided a noticable difference in performance.

149 plus like 20 shipping ($175 with Part, ship, and tax)

After I had my gears installed my mechanic friend (one of those friend things....he was laid off from Ford so I was trying to be nice and give him a days worth of work) forgot to mark the driveshaft. I mentioned it at reinstall and he said...."it doesnt matter".

I beg to differ....I was having a ton of vibration problems that got worse and worse at highway speeds. It took me 4 weeks of waiting for him to have a chance to "look at it". I finally got fed up with rattling around and making all kind of noise and hating to drive my car I ordered a FRP HD Alum DS. I took it to another friends shop and had it installed. It took him about 5 minutes. I went sailing down the road and AHHHH it felt so nice to have no vibration. I was relieved that problem was over.

The automatic tranny guys just have to swap out the spindle (part that goes into the rear end) by disasembling the Ujoint.

If you have any more questions that you need answered about this product....email me at: [email protected]

Removing the 4 driveshaft flange bolts was a pain in the A$$! Finally needed a butane torch and impact gun to get them out. Now that its installed the car seems to accelerate half a hair faster, but it could just be my imagination. I gave this a 9 out of 10 because it would be better if they sent 4 new flange bolts with it....
