Ford Performance Driveshaft
Bolt on quicker acceleration and less rotational mass with Ford Performance's 2007-2012 Mustang Shelby GT500 one piece aluminum driveshaft! The factory S197 driveshaft is a heavy two piece design that is prone to failure in high performance applications. Ford Performance designed this one piece aluminum driveshaft to reduce rotational mass which results in faster acceleration and eliminates the center bearing found in the stock driveshaft. This 20lb aluminum shaft is 3.5" in diameter which is ideal for lowered Mustangs. Ford Performance constructs this driveshaft with lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum and a .125" wall thickness for the ultimate in strength and reliability. A 1350 series Dana Spicer 5-1350X solid body universal joint is utilized for a significant upgrade over the common 1330 series U-joints. The driveshaft arrives fully assembled and balanced for a quick and easy installation.
This will NOT fit the 2013-2014 GT500's.
-Fits 2007-2012 Mustang GT500 only

The 1979-2004 Mustang factory driveshaft bolts are installed using a threadlocker chemical and are NOT torque to yield. If reusing the factory bolts, clean the old threadlocker material from the threads, and apply new blue threadlocker before reinstalling the bolts or use new driveshaft bolts and apply blue threadlocker to threads and torque to the factory specifications.

For 2005-2020 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.
