    10. with the CV in the rear there is no need to change pinion angle on lowered cars.

    For the last 6 years we have been chasing an elusive thing, we have been  trying to make a driveshaft for the new Mustang (S197) that is not only  the strongest shaft out there, but also the most stable shaft when it  comes to dealing with the harmonic vibrations that these cars are  plagued with. In our opinion these cars were rushed to market with a  harmonic vibration in the drive train. This is very obvious as the stock  2-piece 43lb anchor of a driveshaft that came installed in the car to  help cure the problem. For those who are not aware, the rear of the  factory shaft has a 9lb steel dampener inside of the tube (see picture)  helping to make it so tremendously heavy.

    Over the last few years we have tried a few different types of shafts.  First we tried a steel shaft and they had more of a harmonic vibration.  We then moved onto the Explorer/Ranger style male and female aluminum  slider shaft with decent results, but the success rate was not as high  as we wanted. We then even went as far a making our own male/female  slider that also allowed us to give you the stronger 1350 series u-joint  on both ends with a supplied pinion yoke for the differential.

    Just to bring you into our world a little bit, we here at DSS go about things a little different than most Drive shaft companies. Most shaft companies buy the separate Shaft  parts, they put them together and send them out the door. We are a full  22,000 sq. ft machine shop and manufacture a lot of the parts that we  use, so when it comes to having trouble with a particular part we have  not only the engineering in house to review the problem, but also have  the machines to make the parts needed to correct these problems.

    So going back to the slider, we went ahead and produced a female slider  and it was considerably better than the Ford Explorer/Ranger type, but  we still had some cars that had a stability problem, so we went even  further. During this time we had taken delivery of a new type of  balancing machine (show machine). This was a custom built machine that  our owner Frank had spec'd out with the company's engineers, and were  told the machine would take 3-4 months to make. Well, one and half years  later we took delivery of the machine (3/2010) and a whole new world  was opened up. Most are not aware that a balancing machine normally does  not spin a shaft at the actual speed that the shaft will be spinning  at, (click here for more about this) and to make a long story short,  this new balancer has the ability to spin a shaft at any speed we want  from 10RPM right up to 9500RPM (and everything in between). This  balancer has enabled us to see the male/female slider type shaft become  unstable at certain speeds and helped us to understand that we needed to  take a different direction to make the shaft correctly.

    What may come as a surprise to some is that we actually had the CV style  driveshaft pictured in our 2009 Catalog, expecting the arrival of the  new balancer. We wanted to wait to make sure that it was as stable as we  had hoped by testing it in the new machine and that is why it was not  used before now. Some time has passed and we were not only able to test  the shaft in the new balancer, but we have given these shafts to a few  chosen, well known shops for testing. The results are in, and every  single car has been flawless. We were able to achieve exactly what we  wanted, the best balanced shaft without the problems associated with the  harmonics problems of a slider and strength without compare.

    The Shaft will retain the factory 6-bolt CV mount, so we have eliminated  the problems associated with changing out the pinion yoke, and we have  supplied a plate to convert the stock rear CV flange to fit a modified  version of a 108mm CV that will be able to move in and out with  suspension movement. We didn't stop there though, the original spline  going into the 108mm CV is still a small 28 spline, similar to a C4  transmission output, so we decided to make the stub section ourselves  using a new 300M material that we have been getting out of Sweden. This  material is the same used in our record setting axles on many 8 second  drag/street cars. We are also using a special boot and grease  combination to ensure longevity of the CV. This, along with the 3.5”  6061-T6 aluminum and 1350 front u-joint, makes this the strongest shaft  available for the platform with no clearance issues.

    NOTE: This item can be special order and may take up to 3-4 weeks to ship.

    1. best driveshaft

      Works great. Took about 2.5 hours to install on a set of race ramps and jackstands. Did not have to drop the exhaust but was a tight squeeze. No vibrations felt or noticed. Make sure you have a set of Allen sockets in several sizes. Had to run to the hardware store twice. on 25th Jun 2016
