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.

Additional Installation Note
Clearance between the mufflers/exhaust and driveshaft need to be verified regardless of ride height and it needs to be checked with the suspension compressed (car at ride height).

1993-2004 do sometimes have interference issues between the driveshaft and the front parking brake cable bracket that is spot welded to the underside of the transmission tunnel. Sometimes the spot-welds break and the bracket will make contact with the driveshaft. Lowered ride height will make this issue worse. The bracket can be trimmed slightly for more clearance. If the spot-welds have broken, they MUST be repaired to rectify the situation.

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)

  • 83-95 Mustang 5.0L/5.8L with Automatic Transmission (C4/AOD)

  • 94-04 Mustang 3.8L/3.9L V6 with Manual Transmission (T5)

  • 96-04 Mustang 3.8L/3.9L V6 with Automatic Transmission (Must Re-use Factory Transmission Yoke from Stock Driveshaft)

  • 1984-1986 SVO



Note

- The u-joints on this drive shaft are a sealed unit and do not have grease zerk fittings.

NOTE: An M236041X 31 spline Driveshaft yoke can be installed on this drive shaft to expand its fitment for aftermarket transmissions.

    5 Stars   awesome peice!!!!
    By on 4/4/2014
    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.

    5 Stars   Great product, but its 1/2 bigger diameter than stock!!!!
    By on 8/16/2014
    After reading somebody else's review I decided the measure it with calipers, the diameter of this drive shaft is 3.53 inches wide. The stock drive shaft diameter is 3.07 (or at least mine was). I have had that issue where the parking brake cables were hitting the drive shaft over any kind of bump. I fixed it by removing the drive shaft and using a rivet gun to refasten the parking brake cable bracket (that holds the cables above the drive shaft) back into the frame/floorboard. IF YOU ARE HAVING THIS ISSUE FIX IT FIRST BEFORE PUTTING THIS DRIVE SHAFT IN. It's not a hard fix, but it needs to be done, otherwise....SCRAAAAAAAAAAAAPE.

    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.

    By on 4/30/2014
    This is a good product at a price better than anywhere else on the Web. I had slightly twisted my original drive shaft, causing vibrations that got worse with speed. This unit arrived quickly and fit in place easily, u-joints are included. Vibration is gone.

    5 Stars   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.

    Installed it on my 95 Gt 5-Speed test drove home 120 with no vibrations in 5th gear eliminates weight lag. Must have especially if you car is a daily driver or is equipped with upgraded gears. Ordered with new bolts and Latemodel Restoration discount code came out to $299.99 on the dot. Shipped in about a week from Texas to California installed in 30 min with jack and jack stands. I still remember when these were $150 back in the day lol but still SATISFIED

    5 Stars   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.

    5 Stars   Fits 95' GT AODE perfectly right out of the box! Well worth the money!
    By on 6/7/2015
    If you still have your 20 or 30 year old steel stocker, you need this folks; well worth the investment! I know in the 13 years I have had my car I never have touched the U joints or driveshaft unless I was removing it to pull the transmission or work on the rear end. I never gave it much thought. Over the years I have had a driveline vibration that was a combination of bad motor and transmission mounts and I was in need of an alignment. The vibrations improved but did not stop and got worse with speed. This is when I decided to try the aluminum one and boy am I grinning ear to ear now! Vibrations gone at any speed! Drives like its brand new now and I can actually feel the improvement in acceleration, especially normal driving. I run a 9" 3500 stall with my AODE and 4.10 gears and the car still feels like its heavy off the line unless you are drag racing. Soon as I took the first test drive the car felt like it just lost a couple hundred pounds, it was much more responsive at lower RPM cruising just around town and in traffic, I was very impressed! Floor it and I can't notice any real difference in performance and I haven't been to the track yet, but just the lighter sensation and faster revs off the line is a great benefit to go along with eliminating my annoying drivetrain vibrations! Install was same as any other driveshaft, and this one was a direct out of the box fit for my 95' GT 5.0 with AODE transmission. I did not have to reuse old slip yoke or anything, it fits perfect! LRS had the best price for it, I just wish I got one years ago when they were half the price :(
    Get it, you will smile, I know I am!

    5 Stars   EXCELLENT! Fixed 95% of all drivetrain vibration from 3.73 gear install!
    By on 6/9/2015
    First of all, LateModelRestoration comes through for me every time and I have to say that as a customer and Mustang enthusiast, that is something that will definitely keep me coming back! Thank you for being awesome! Secondly, I wasn't aware that installing 3.73s in my 90 GT would create this phantom howling/vibration after 65-70mph. Did some research online and found this driveshaft to be the fix, and simply put, IT IS! Installed perfectly in about 15 minutes and took the car to the track 2 days later and had ZERO issues, and ZERO vibrations up past 100mph! Now I can drive down the highway again! A bit pricey, BUT LateModel's price was the best all around!

    4 Stars   Easy swap
    By on 5/22/2014
    I bought this driveline to stave off the vibrations that my new 4.10 gears brought to the table at freeway speeds, and am totally pleased. Also a very easy install. If you have a vibration, and a "buzzing" feeling in your shifter at highway speeds, this driveline is a cheap way to make your old fox, not feel like such a junker.

    5 Stars   Excellent shaft for the money!
    By on 7/11/2014
    Added this along with a balanced engine and flywheel, engine revs like a 2-stroke with no vibration. Drive shafts are often overlooked when considering performance enhancements but between the weight savings and reduced rotating mass, it should be at the top of the list.

    By on 4/29/2014
    I was having a problem with a severe vibration over 70 mph after I did the T-5 swap and upgraded to 3.55 gears on my 87 5.0. I tried installing new u-joints and same problem. Then I ordered the driveshaft and all the vibrations are gone I now have hwy speeds back!

    5 Stars   Great Stock Replacement
    By on 11/2/2014
    I bought this to replace my factory driveshaft which had over 125K mi on it in stock 93 5.0 manual. The existing unit's U-joints were well worn and the yoke was worn in an hour-glass shape which in concert with a worn out tailshaft bushing had my transmission leaking like a sieve. Although a new yoke and U-joints would have been cheaper, not having to spend the time and hassle swapping all that out was well worth the extra money and you get a better balanced unit out of the deal as well!

    The result was a very noticeable reduction in driveline vibration - particularly in the 65-75mph range in 5th gear.

    This unit was of noticeably higher build quality however, I don't know much vibration reduction this unit offers over a stocker with a fresh yoke and U-joints. Since this comes as one assembled and balanced unit however, if nothing else, it offers a reliable, simple drop-in improvement.

    5 Stars   Vibration Gone! Smoother and quicker!
    By on 10/8/2014
    I have 4.10 gears, so I had a vibration that only got worse the faster you went past 70mph. I was skeptical of this aluminum DS especially after I already had my original DS rebalanced and they found it was dead on the money and took no weight. I stand impressed! I never though my little 86GT could spin up so smoothly and much quicker. If you do not do anything else to your fox this year, get an Ford Racing aluminum DS today. You will fall in love with her al over again. I have a 31 spline for my 97 Cobra in my basket right now waiting to order at the end of the month or if an emailed coupon arrives, whichever comes first. Thanks LMR & Ford Racing!

    By on 2/10/2015
    Purchased this about a month and a half ago. I was experiencing vibration that seemed to worsen over 70 mph. My shifter rattled terribly bad and it felt as if something were terribly out of balance. I replaced the stock driveshaft with the ford racing driveshaft and couldn't be happier. No vibrations and increased exceleration.

    By on 4/9/2015
    I bought this driveshaft because I have a growing noise coming from the rear of the car when I let off the throttle in overdrive above 60mph. It almost completely eliminated that noise, and it's way, WAY lighter than the stock driveshaft. The driveshaft on AOD cars has an extremely heavy weight that T5 cars don't have, so the difference in acceleration was actually noticeable. Thanks LMR for great service and products!!

    Bought this driveshaft to replace my bent factory 25 year old one. I still have no idea on how I bent it, other than there was a whole lotta shacking going on... and it wasn't just my stereo booming. After a 8 min install... that's all it took to take the old one out and put the new one in, and presto, all those vibrations are now gone that didn't belong. Worth your money on this replacement.

    I installed this driveshaft on my car about 3 months ago. First off, I bought it off LMR because I had a nice cutomer appreciation type coupon from previous purchases with LMR which other competing mustang sites, "cough...American...cough...Muscle" never offered me after all the money Ive Spent on their website!!! LMR still constantly sends me coupons so this is officially my go to site for anything mustang since then! Now as for the product review itself, definitely an improvement over stock. Since ive had 3.73s installed, ive had some pretty annoying vibrations at higher rpms. I was hoping this would eliminate them completely, however it still left some behind but theyre not as bad and dont bother me. My car is manual and always could be shifted butter smooth, but this made the shifts even more smoother transitioning! Also definitely noticed an increase in freed power from a dead stop. A slight increase in power response if i would put the pedal on the floor while in any of the gears except 5th obviously. Overall the car feels alot smoother throughout the rpm range, no doubt. Install was a breeze, hardest and longest part of the job was jacking the car up!!! The shaft and splines arrived all greased up already and ready for install! Overall, not sure if this upgrade in my eyes lives up to all the hype people give it, but its still definitely worth the money for the advantages and benefits it provides, especially since it takes about a half hour to do anyway! BTW, make some sort of hanger for you parking brake cable before you install the new driveshaft, it will scrape if you dont! Look at the picture for my quick fix! That was the only minor hiccup in this install for me. Thanks LMR!!!

    5 Stars   Best money I've ever spent!!!

    My 1994 Cobra had some serious vibrations that got so bad they actually broke the rear transmission mount. After having my local repair shop look at it they were able to determine that it was most likely caused by a damaged stock driveshaft. Rather than trying to spend money repairing the stock driveshaft I did a good bit of research and everyone I talked to highly recommended purchasing this aluminum driveshaft to replace the stock one. I now have it installed on my Cobra and I am extremely pleased with it. All of my vibration issues have now been solved and it has also helped the performance of the car slightly as well. I would highly recommend this product to any and everyone who owns a mustang.

    After upgrading the 8.8 rear end in my '95 GT vert 5-speed from 2.73 gears to 3.73 gears, the high rpm's at cruising speeds above 65 mph caused strong high frequency vibrations. The rear view mirror was unusable because it shook so much. I am convinced too many highway miles would have ruined u-joints, bearings and seals in the driveline. After installing this driveshaft, the entire character of the car changed. She is smooth at freeway speeds, she is quieter at any speed and I can see things in my rear view once again. The transformation was phenomenal! Anyone looking to add that something extra to their ride or who has a car with shorter gearing should put this jewel at the top of their list!

    Bought this item along with the lrs-7003-kit, the manual transmission wiring harness and the rear main seal. Everything fit perfect. It's been about 2 weeks since I installed everything in my 91 lx 5.0 and it made my car way more fun to drive. I was also very satisfied with the quality of LMR service. Yall really have awesome business ethics. I recommend this items for everyone who's looking to inprove their pony. Thanks again. The one thing I don't understand is how come LMR doesn't have the lrs-7003-kit available anymore?

    Lately started to get "clunking" sound while shifting into drive and vibration on freeway ... 10 yrs ago, Cost about $250 just to change u-joints, included trans fluid change at a shop. Ordered d/s, new bolts and tail seal $341... Arrived today, installed myself with floor jacks and tools. Done in couple hours! No more clunk sound! Perfect Fit!!! -1988 LX 5.0

    Get this....it really is worth it if you have vibration problems. The install is easy as long as you at least have a breaker bar and some penetrating oil for those 4 stubborn bolts on the old driveshaft....don't reuse them either....get replacements from LMR that already have locktite on the threads. Noticed a little more acceleration too.

    5 Stars   A must for high speed
    By on 4/22/2015
    A must if you drag or have a need for speed. I have seen several videos online of people tuning their pony (removing the speed limiter) and dropping a driveshaft at 130. Not good. This driveshaft is stronger and balanced to a higher speed than stock. Also Late Model Restoration had the best price by far, thanks!

    Installed it today and looks great. Haven't driving the car because im waiting for my wheels and tires to get here because I converted to 5 lug. Ill review again when I drive it. With original driveshaft I did not have any vibration issue. I just bought to upgrade. Thanks late model restoration.
