Product Description

Improve Acceleration and Reduce Vibration
Improve the Acceleration of your Mustang by replacing the heavy steel driveshaft with a light weight aluminum driveshaft from Ford Performance Performance Parts. 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 Performance 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 axle flange. This allows for much greater power handling over the stock steel driveshaft.

Tech Specs
The M-4602-J Driveshaft measures 45.5" long, center of u-joint to center of u-joint. The transmission yoke is 1996-2004 automatic specific and requires installation by the end customer! The yoke installed on the driveshaft out of the box is for manual transmission! The rear axle flange will bolt right to the factory installed 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.

Why is This 28 Spline Yoke Different From The Manual Transmission Version?
The automatic 28 spline yoke is .75" longer than its manual transmission counterpart and the barre diameter is 0.090" larger in diameter.

Why Will This Driveshaft Not Fit 1996-1997 AOD-E?
The 1996-1997 AODE Transmission yoke is 1.125" longer than the 4R70W yoke included in this kit. All other dimensions are the same.
