Default Spydershaft Installed

I've got an 07 GT. I spent about 3 1/2 hours putting in the aluminum driveshaft while lying under the car. Yup, takes some time. Was it worth it? Not sure, really. Cost a pretty penney to obtain, plus I bought a puller, torque wrench, and a few other things. The shaft is nice and light. Is it worth this kind of expenditure? I have my doubts. No miracles seen.

Lessons learned:
1.Instructions are not very good. I found really good installation instructions on one of the Mustang forums. Spydershaft needs to spend a few cents to make decent instructions.
2. It would have helped a bunch if they had put a 12mm, 12 point socket/wrench in the box. Six point 12mm won't work. The wife had to make a tool run.
3. I had a booger ofa time getting the front end of the old shaft off. Finally, a side blow from a hammer got it loose.
4. The pinion nut is a bear to remove. However, buy a cheap hammer-it style impact wrench, and the $10 investment works just fine.
5. I bought some gear oil- I did lose some.
6. A gear puller with a 3 inch reach should work, but there isn't a sharp edge for the puller to grab onto. It did squeeze down on the flange and get it off once I tightened it up.

why do some websites show up with asterisks, or sometimes members will put spaces between links to brake them up?

I guess it's rigged to keep from putting other websites? It's S197 forum, thread 1104.

I find that crap here very annoying and gay. I guess this place isn't about information exchange as folks find information all over the net about Mustangs that someone could use.

I've got a shooting website and I never get possessive or think that it's all about me. The site is a team, and it's about meeting the needs of the posters, nothing more. No egos involved.
