Ford Performance Aluminum Driveshaft M-4602-GA

Reduce driveline vibration while improving acceleration in your 1979-2004 Mustang with this Ford Performance aluminum driveshaft! Your factory driveshaft is constructed with heavy steel that can be a chore for your engine to rotate. Installing an aluminum driveshaft reduces rotational mass which increases acceleration because your engine is now using less power to rotate the driveshaft and making more power available to the rear wheels! Ford Performance utilizes heavy-duty U-joints and high-speed balances this driveshaft so most driveline vibrations are greatly reduced or eliminated after installation.

Ford Performance Quality

Ford Performance brand products have a way of instilling confidence that you're installing quality on your Mustang and this driveshaft is no exception. Constructed with 6061-RT62 aluminum, this driveshaft is built to last. The 0.114" wall thickness and 3.5" diameter are seamless end to end and ready to handle increased power demands effortlessly. 1330 U-Joints and a 28 spline driveshaft yoke are fitted to this driveshaft making it a direct fit for the applications below.

  • 1979-1995 Mustang 5.0L/5.8L with Manual Transmission (SROD/T5)

Disclaimer - Driveshaft Hardware

  • The 1979-2004 Mustang factory driveshaft bolts are installed using a thread locker chemical and are NOT torque to yield. If reusing the factory bolts, clean the old thread locker material from the threads, and apply new blue thread locker before reinstalling the bolts or use new driveshaft bolts and apply blue thread locker to threads and torque to the factory specifications. New bolts can be found here: HDW-4602.
  • For 2005-2021 Ford Mustangs, it is recommended that you install new driveshaft to pinion flange bolts when removing the driveshaft. The driveshaft to pinion flange bolts are torque to yield and should be torqued to 41ft-lbs.

  • Ford Mustang - 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004
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 Mustangs will 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.

  • 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.
