Product Description

This one of a kind driveshaft safety loop will save you and your investment from the destructive effects of a broken driveshaft. Quick and easy bolt-in application requires no drilling or welding and weighs almost 2 lbs. less than most popular styles! Comes complete with all mounting hardware and spacer plates to maintain correct driveshaft angle. Works with all automatic and manual transmissions, most aftermarket exhaust combinations and aluminum driveshafts.

Partial removal of torque arm boss on TKO's is required

96-98 Cobra's and Fox cars using a T-45 need to order part # STF-DSLM01 to ensure proper tunnel clearance.

*** When this drive shaft safety loop (DSL) is installed with the factory crossmember and transmission mount, the rear of the transmission is raised by the thickness of the DSL (1/4"). Doing this causes a change in the pinion angle which may induce driveline vibration or cause unwanted stress. To ensure optimum performance it is recommended to correct for the pinion angle change. This can be accomplished in one of the following ways:
* use part # STF-TCBM01 transmission crossmember
* use part # LRS-6068AU transmission mount. It is a 1/4" shorter
* If equipped, re-set pinion angle using adjustable rear control arms
* For 94-95 Cars, Minor cutting will be required if using stock exhaust hanger.

5 Stars   Well made and great fit

Image uploaded by William W. If you've replaced the original exhaust hanger with the Late Model Resto one you'll need to trim part of the hanger to get it to fit, but it's a simple modification.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

I was skeptical of whether this Stifflers piece would hold up! WOW! When I held the safety loop in my hands I could see it was a quality, well made, heavy duty piece! Plus it bolted right in like it always belonged their! I'd recommend the stifflers safety loop to anyone thinking about installing one on their Mustang!

5 Stars   Slick Drive shaft loop
By on 2/18/2015
Image uploaded by Joe H. Due to the limitations of the exhaust/crossmember etc on custom TKO installation on '01 Dodge Dakota installing a DS loop without redoing work already done appeared difficult. When I came across this design I thought it would work perfectly and it did. Had to trim the bottom torque mounts from the TKO housing but after that it was a very quick bolt on. Had a 3/8" shim under trans mount, once loop was installed changed to 1/8" shim and done! Great design, quality piece!

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!
