Default Which driveshaft to buy?

1) http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/DSS-H...item5adc282d14

Yes I know how some people think about buying from ebay, but it's the cheapest I can find. However, I'm not willing to sacrifice quality for price

2) http://www.suttonhp.com/store/item.a...ARTMENT_ID=125

Didn't hear a lot of good reviews about it

3) http://powerhouse411.com/catalog/ind...products_id=27

Last one, if you got more you like please link, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks for your advice.

I'm sure some will post that have direct feedback but I have seen several good reviews on the below from the mustang forums.

PST

Not the cheapest but the least likely to have vibration problems which is so common with all the other designs. The double universal joint requires precise alignment and if the splines loosen up you'll have vibration. Neither of those things are an issue with the PST for the Mustang. No splines used and only one universal joint the other end has a CV joint which eliminates both problems.

I have the PowerHouse shaft and have no problems at all with it. I paid $550 for it in a group buy.

http://www.brenspeed.com/dshaft05gt.html

That is what I have. It is rated to 900hp so no worries about that. Some of them are only rated to 600 or so. I am planning on putting on the eforce stage 1 from brenspeed which is rated at 560 bhp so I didn't want to chance it.

It is super easy to install, and I have no vibration problems.

I have the Shaftmasters and it has been great. I've put a lot of track time and miles on it with no problems. They have great customer service and a great product.

Thanks for the info guys, I didn't know about shaftmasters. I'm starting to lean more towards them as I've heard good things about them as mentioned above.

If I go with the direct bolt-in for easy install, anything wrong with that?
