What is an Aftermarket Drive Shaft and why do I need one? The stock driveshaft is heavy and weak at speeds higher than the stock speed limiter. This means if you plan on increasing your speed limiter or removing it you should get an upgraded drive shaft. If you plan on increasing the horsepower and torque you should plan on getting an upgraded drive shaft. The Drive Shaft Shop has been doing this for over 30 years and continually adapts with new technology to make their products better.
DRIVESHAFT VIBRATION: 101 (not for CV axles) Most people have trouble determining if the vibration in their vehicle is coming from the DRIVESHAFT or not. There are typically two types of vibration most vehicles would have. A fast cycle vibration or a slow cycle vibration, to help understand this lets say we put a bucket of water on the passenger’s floor. If the vibration in the vehicle produces small ripples on the top of the water this would be considered a fast cycle vibration. This type of vibration is usually a drive train vibration, things like the driveshaft, motor or torque converter. If the vibration puts waves on the top of the water or splashes, this type of vibration is a slow cycle vibration and usually is an axle or tire vibration.
