Ford Performance Mustang Aluminum Driveshaft Reviews - Ford Performance Mustang Aluminum Driveshaft Reviews

Thinking about adding an aluminum driveshaft to your 1979-current Mustang? Look no further than the high quality Ford Racing aluminum driveshafts. The FRPP driveshafts are 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. Best of all they can improve your acceleration by replacing that ridiculously heavy factory steel shaft.

The reduced un-sprung and rotational mass equate to more power to the wheels. The Ford Racing drive shafts are high speed balanced to further help reduce driveline vibrations. These are available in a variety of models. See below for more details.
