    part number, and how much is the wight of the shaft, I know that aluminum shaft are lighter than the oem ones, but anyone here knows the exact, or even aprox wight of both the factory and aluminum shaft.

    I believe you can buy the Manual shaft and just swap the yoke over if you had to.

    There are a few places that sell custom aluminum driveshafts. Denny's Driveshafts, Dynotech Engineering....thats just a couple. Prices aren't that bad....a lot less than $2k.

    What's wrong with your current shaft?

    Is the shaft dented or bent or something? U-joints can be rebuilt...

    Hmm, what did you do to bend and and dent your DS. Mine was pristine when it came off after 95k miles. Sure it had a little rust, but other than that, not a mark.

    I currently have a Dynotech DS with the D&D T-56 Magnum. I really like it. A friend has a composite one from Dynotech and loves it. I know a few people who have the Denny's ones, and say it is great. Easily less than $500. Now....there is always the really quick easy and cheap way to do it. Call a junk yard around you, and pick up one for $50.

    well, I am not quite sure how, maybe a big rock hit my car from down , yet I can't remember that happening to me

    as for junk yards I am still looking , my model is hard to find in my area, I personally know over 12 mustang got totaled because of reckless drivers last year .

    If you are looking at used driveshafts, check out car-part.com. You can sort by location, price, ect and find what you are looking for. Not cheap as a yard where you pull the shaft yourself, but you don't have to do the labor and around here, a premium car like a GT wouldn't end up in the yard.

    As mentioned earlier, the ford racing driveshaft is a good option as well. A bit over 200$ as I recall.
