I am thinking about getting an aluminum driveshaft for my '67 Mustang. It has a built 351-C and 4:30 gears with a T-5. Any one have one on their car and did it make any difference in vibration.

downside is they're more expensive than their steel cousins. The goodside is that they're usually stronger than a factory unit, due to their larger diameter and thicker walls, and they usually result in a better ET at the dragstrip, usually around .05 second minimum compared to a average steel driveline. You might be able to get more if you have a real heavy steel shaft now and switch to a aluminum one.

I just replaced the stocker steel on my '69 and noticed a big difference in vibration. I know my u-joints were good but maybe my old driveshaft was out of balance. I got the new aluminum from Mustangs Plus/Inland Empire driveline. Well worth the $$.
