I took the driveshaft over to be cut down to the 10.5 inch length as per the drawing in the manual. Is That correct length? I have the stock rear end from the 1990 mustang and the T-5 transmission. It just looks too short.

Hi Mike,
Explain the method that FFR measures the driveshaft. The industry standard is centerline of each u-joint. If you have a FFR roadster with a small block, it should measure 7.5 inches. If you need a complete new driveshaft, I sell it all new for $200.00.

Mike Thank you for the reply.
I will have to look at the drawing again and the shaft. I took the shaft and the drawing from the build manual to the shop and they did the cutting. They did a nice job. I have the 5.0 motor and the stock rear end. I just thought that the 10.5 inch driveshaft might bind if the rear axle moves alot.

send your driveshaft to www.driveshaftspecialist.com

these guys are awesome, for $119.00 and 48 hours turn around time. Just mail the ffr dwg to them and it will come back perfect with new heavy duty u-joints too. yes the 10'5" dimension is correct for 5spd and aod.

email me if you need more info. Mine fit like a glove. I sent them a rusty piece of crap and they bead blasted it so it looked like new.
