I have a 2011 3.7. Is it worth it to buy a new driveshaft? I've read that they are ridiculously unreliable. Thanks.
If you plan on going over 130 and racing, yes. Other than that, not really necessary.I have a 2011 3.7. Is it worth it to buy a new driveshaft? I've read that they are ridiculously unreliable. Thanks.
All his shafts have this note:If you do decide to get a new one, don't get the ones from American Muscle or comparable places that are like 700 bucks. Get one from this guy, Drive Shafts and Yokes - Racing Parts and Products I haven't gotten one for my v6 as i don't plan on modifying it performance wise just yet, but the one he made me for my 65 fastback was awesome. Great quality and half the price
I know it's funny this d's issue is almost like the Toyota issue years ago, where that one driver claimed he couldn't stop..ruined toyotas reputation for a year...turns out the dude never used the breaks...If the OP was referring to stock driveshafts, they are not ridiculously unreliable, despite a small handful of videos of DS's flying apart on dyno's.
If you're going to drive in a typically spirited manner, then you have nothing to fear from stock. If you're going to beat on it, then you're definitely in a gray area. This being the case, you're best off going with aluminum.
Plenty of threads here. Search away.
The driveshaft shops DS's are considered to be the best out right now for our cars..structurally and quality wise. Can't wait till they start shipping!This is interesting. Are all driveshafts created equally? Or are some of more quality than others?
Money is always the main object for me. If it wasn't though the DSS carbonfiber shaft is amazing, look at WRXified's thread on his install. But I'll spend half that much on the new Shaftmasters or buy AM's.^What's "pred mech"?
brake. And the difference is: there is hard evidence that the stock shafts can possibly fail. The Toyota thing is hear-say.
If money was no object, which drive shaft would your car have?
No one's debating this.there is hard evidence that the stock shafts can possibly fail
How about $620 shipped. Seriously, it was on the car for 4 days before I traded it in. I have the original box as well. I have lots of other parts for sale as well. PM me for more info so we don't hijack this thread. Oh and BTW, the DS makes the car feel lighter and much smoother. I just wish it would fit my GT...how much pred mech for the DS?
Predator Mechanic. I work on MQ-1s.^What's "pred mech"?
