Mustang 2015-2017 V6
Driveshafts are made to order, current 4 week lead time
The 2015 Mustang now has an independent rear suspension (IRS) and the driveshaft is a little different than the S197 cars. Although the factory on is still a 2 piece shaft, they differ in configuration. 2015 Automatic Mustangs use a 4-bolt flange on the back of the trans, but The Driveshaft Shop uses the new Forged Aluminum 1350 flange instead.
Why does The Driveshaft Shop use the CV and not a slider like from a 4x4? The reason is that The Driveshaft Shop high-speed balances their driveshafts and found out years ago that the CV is more stable and less likely to have harmonic issues. In addition, the CV will have a much higher critical speed than a male/female slider. This specific driveshaft uses a heavy-duty 6-bolt CV joint for connecting to the rear differential.
This aluminum 1 piece driveshaft is about half between steel and carbon fiber which helps reduce harmonics but also help with 60ft times. This is a direct bolt on application and all install hardware and instructions are included.
